94. Should we ban all private-party sales?
That's the real argument at hand here. Even if we were to "close the gun-show loophole" you'd still have all those guns listed in the Classifieds and what not, with no background check performed during the transaction. So criminals would still easily be able to obtain guns that way. No, I think banning private-party sales at gun shows is only a "means to an end" of banning all private-party sales, so that every transaction can be RECORDED for posterity, so that when the day comes when entire classes of guns are to be banned, the authorities know just where to look for the offending items. Sounds like a noble goal if what you are after is the creation of a POLICE STATE!
