"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.

what I bolded is not a loophole, it is a willful violation of federal law. You can call a onetime or occasional sale from a private collection a loophole if you want, but those guys are showing up with brand new still in the case, guns from someplace working as full time dealers while screwing the local mom and pop who play the ATF's rules. They are unlicensed dealers, which makes them criminals and should be busted.
