13. The authors own data cites show that only 13% come from shows.
And under 10% of juvenile gun crimes follow sales originating at gun shows.

I read the first couple sections of the report, and it basically boils down to this: "It's easy to get a gun at a gun sale, so that must be where all the gun crime comes from. Although my data says that I'm wrong, and although I could only find a single high profile example of a gun show weapon being used in a major crime, I don't like the people who run them or the way they work, so I'm going to make that assertion anyway. Even though my own data shows that I'm wrong."
