13. the problem is the laws are too damn complicated and different in every state.and black marketing
black marketing is ILLEGAL activity
a loophole is when one law doesn't work because it isn't covered or reinforced by another one.
some states have closed the loophole, and some NEVER will, so the feds have to do it.
"But the trick is that many of the private sellers at gun shows are really unlicensed full time dealers, so they may be selling scores or hundreds of guns a year with no paperwork. Because of the volume, they are much more reliable sources of firearms for prohibited possessors."
As a result of the loophole, "itís possible a convicted felon could go into a gun show and buy a firearm without ever being checked," said Chris Bombardiere, public information officer at the Newark Field Division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
That isnít possible everywhere, however, since some states have passed more restrictive gun laws. According to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, 17 states, including New Jersey, "have either closed the gun show loophole or have taken action to close the loophole."
