10. How does this study comport with those which indicate other sources?
I am struck by the photo montage: Turner Diaries, Rebel flag on the Capitol, "assault weapons," etc. Sounds like the UC Davis "researchers" have a bone to pick. Where is the funding for this study coming from? I always have suspicions when a study like this emanates from a health sciences origin (we do remember the CDC fiasco concerning a public health "model" for gun control).

Had a camera been at my local gun show, they would have spotted me legally purchasing two firearms from an "unlicensed vendor."

And how is the "85% of recovered crime guns have gone through at least one private party transaction" linked to "gun shows are the leading source." I could have sworn the leading source were various iron-ore ranges around the world.
