11 Terrifying Reasons to Close the Gun Show Loophole [View all]

Last edited Sun Jan 1, 2012, 10:56 PM - Edit history (1)

The Brady Campaign sent me a fundraising letter with the title I posted above. Apparently it's an old letter because I found a post about it from 2008. http://beta.ar15.com/archive/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=768717 I have never given to gun causes on any side of the issues, so I'm guessing they found me through the DNC.

Here is what it said:

1. Mac-10 $795
2. 10% of the guns used in crimes by juveniles and children were sold at gun shows and flea markets.
3. Handgun $595
4. Buy a gun...no questions asked. 63% of private sellers sold guns to purchasers who said they could not pass a background check
5. Handgun ammunition $12.95
6. "I would not have bought a gun for Eric and Dylan if I had had to give any personal information or submit to any kind o fcheck at all." Robyn Anderson, frond who bought guns at a local gun show for the Columbine shooters.
7. 25%-50% of the vendors at most gun shows are unlicensed dealers.
8. Semi-Auto and Auto Weapons Guides $7.95-$29.95
9. No background checks are required by unlicensed sellers.
10. AK-47 Replacement Parts $4.99-$49.99
11. Assaut weapons are back on the market - get one today at your local gun show.

I thought this letter was fairly weak. The gun prices in 1 and 3 seem expensive to me. 6 seems like an important point. 4 doesn't seem believable. What do you think about this letter? Is it factual?
