Guns shows are the 'Tupperware parties for criminals'

Trying to stop illegal gun trafficking is going to be a tough one. However as this web site suggests that congress has not done much to stop it.

1. Yet nobody gives enough of a shit to even start

to fix the problem of private sales..let's officially quit calling this erroneously, "gun show loophole". If we want to fix the problem the first step is getting honest and knock off the ambiguity. Why isn't there any way I, as the owner of a gun who needs money worse than a gun, to access the NICS to be sure the guy who wants to buy it isn't prohibited from owning it? Why is there not a kiosk at every gun show, and access to NICS readily available through FFL holders for private sales? Why are internet auctions like gunbroker so populated? Because as a private seller I must ship the gun to a FFL dealer in the buyer's state. In this way the seller has shifted responsibility because the FFL must do a NICS check on the buyer before delivery. Many don't want to pay the commission and expensive shipping...ironically this impacts cheaper guns more than expensive ones..

2. They must have gotten quite a discount based on all the hyperbole they used on their website
