How many guns bought using the gun show loophole have actually been used in gun crimes? How do supporters of closing that loophole expect it to be enforced? Isn’t that law a toothless tiger?

“Denver congresswoman Diana DeGette says that 70 percent of guns used in crimes come from gun shows. The true figure is rather different, according to the National Institute of Justice, the research arm of the U.S. Department of Justice. According to an NIJ study released in December 1997 (“Homicide in Eight U.S. Cities,” a report that covers much more than homicide), only 2 percent of criminal guns come from gun shows. That finding is consistent with a mid-1980s study for the NIJ, which investigated the gun purchase and use habits of convicted felons in 12 state prisons. The study (later published as the book Armed and Considered Dangerous) found that gun shows were such a minor source of criminal gun acquisition that t were not even worth reporting as a separate figure.” The Facts about Gun Shows The Cato institute which tends to be con on gun issues has stated that there is NO gun show loophole. It is another “manufactured” and false concept. Gun bought at gun shows are involved in very few crimes and in many instances although the gun was bought initially at a “gun show” is was stolen and later used in a crime. Something the gun grabbers ignore when spouting this rhetoric.

A very serious problem is the large number of legal “straw purchasers” who legally obtain firearms, and then sell them at high profit to criminals. This is not unique to ” gun shows” for it has been happening for decades. The fact is that all those gun shows do is provide a great place for criminals to purchase guns, and a great place for police to run out to confiscate weapons after guns get turned in to be used for crimes such as murder. Even though many people ” believe” they are buying used guns to keep to themselves at a “gun show” they are still responsible for the use of those guns that they subsequently turn in to the police. ‬There have been reports of people ” turning ” in ” and then selling the guns at high profit to the same criminal.
