GUN SHOW LOOPHOLE LIE
LIES OF THE RADICAL LEFT
By: John Bender
radical left is once again trying to gut the Second Amendment. As things look right now they will not get most of
their wish list passed. The American people
are too smart to believe that banning semiautomatic firearms and/or certain popular
magazines will do anything to reduce crime.
lie the radical left has so far had success in getting people to believe is that there is
a gun show loophole and that loophole needs to be closed by
mandating universal background checks on all sales or transfers of firearms. Unless civil rights groups like the National Rifle
Association, Gun Owners of America, the Second Amendment Foundation, and civil rights
activists mount a huge effort to expose this lie and the consequences of universal
background checks this could pass Congress.
start, there is NO gun show loophole. Gun
dealers have to do a background check no matter where they sell a firearm. It doesnt matter whether they sell a firearm
in their store, at a gun show, or in a back ally, they have to do a background check. Anyone who says differently is lying. To be fair, most of the so called reporters in the
old media probably have no idea that this is a lie. They
are told there is a loophole by a political hack or a radical anti-Second Amendment group
and never bother to check whether it is true or not.
is exclusion for private citizens to give, sell, or trade guns they own without the
expense and hassle of doing a background check. When
Sarah Brady bought her son a powerful rifle for Christmas in 2000, she didnt have to
do a background check on her son before giving it to him.
When my father left the .22 rifle his father gave him to my son, the
executor of his estate didnt have to do a background check on my son. When my
neighbor sold her late husbands collection of World War I era guns she didnt
have to do a background check on the collectors who bought the collection.
exclusion is what the radicals want to eliminate. Had
there been a universal background check law when the previously mentioned transfers
occurred, the three of us would have had to pay a licensed firearms dealer to do the
background check before transferring the firearms. But
a criminal would not bother doing the background check and without universal registration
there would be no way of knowing the transfer took place.
