First of course there is no such things as a gun show loophole. There are two types of sellers at a gun show. One is an FFL which are the most common and t follow the exact same laws as t would at a brick and mortar store which includes a background check on any gun the in any state. Then there are the private sellers, now in 9 states private sellers have to go through an FFL Here are the private seller laws Private Gun Sale Laws by State - FindLaw. The reason private sellers can not run a background check is due to a law the democrats did. Now a private seller can sell at a house, a gun range or anywhere else. At a gun show you sometimes see them outside with the gun t want to sell. Some get tables and sell some guns along with holsters, pepper spray, beef jerky and all sorts of things. Some private sellers even in states that don't have to go through an FFL if t don't personally know you go through an FFL. Other private sellers won't sell to you if t suspect something about you as far as how you talk or act. Then of course you have the people that are illegally buying for some one else which could be at a gun show or any where else. As t already committed a crime that number would be 100%. Maybe not 100% as you can buy for someone else as long as you legally transfer it. So you are asking to close something that does not exist as most sales at a gun show are from a FFL and of course background checks are always run then. If someone buys a gun for someone else unless t follow the legal transfer laws in that state t are already committing a crime. So really the only thing you are talking about is private sales which don't have to be at a gun show where the private seller can not run a background check. I don't know how you could call that a loophole as the democrats made a law that private citizens can't run a background check. Of course that does not exist in 9 states as t do have to go through an FFL on a private sale. If you look at Private Gun Sale Laws by State - FindLaw all states try to deal with that private citizens can't run a background check law in various ways. Now as the “gun show loophole” only means private sellers which is a very small percentage of any used guns sold at a gun show. Of course would rule out 9 states, its less then 0.8%. Now based on this on the first page of that. “ About 21% of state and 20% of federal prisoners said t possessed a gun during their offense, while 79% of state and 80% of federal prisoners did not. About 29% of state and 36% of federal prisoners serving time for a violent offense possessed a gun during the offense.” The largest percentage of it was 36% so a federal violent crime. So out of 100 of those 36 had a gun. Out of those .288 had a gun that came from a gun show, no way to tell if that qualified as a “gun show loophole” but no way did all of that 0.8%. But lets say it does and round it out to the next whole number, out 400 violent federal crimes 1 might of been from the “gun show loophole”
It would still only account for a little over 1% of violent crimes in the United States. That doesn't even count states that just have a law that bans guns at a large event with state or federal police in attendance and does not have a lot of people. So again it is a law that does not exist on a gun show basis not the first page but the bottom of the story. The point is that none of the states we talked about in this article would have had a ‛gun show loophole without an illegal transaction t have had to take place with someone else. I think you are getting really confused on how you could claim this is a loophole if it isn't. I also think you are completely wrong if you think those numbers are anything close. Now if you can't understand the difference between a private seller and an.
