Obama and everyone else on the left are always complaining about the “gun show loophole”. They say it allows people to go to any gun show and just purchase a gun no questions asked. As the Federalist points out, that is 100% FALSE.
“In reality, the so-called “gun show loophole” is a myth. It does not exist. There is no loophole in federal law that specifically exempts gun show transactions from any other laws normally applied to gun sales. Not one.
If you purchase a firearm from a federal firearms licensee (FFL) regardless of the location of the transaction — a gun store, a gun show, a gun dealer’s car trunk, etc. — that FFL must confirm that you are legally allowed to purchase that gun. That means the FFL must either run a background check on you via the federal NICS database, or confirm that you have passed a background check by examining your state-issued concealed carry permit or your government-issued purchase permit. There are zero exceptions to this federal requirement.
If an individual purchases a gun across state lines — from an individual or FFL which resides in a different state than the buyer — the buyer must undergo a background check, and the sale must be processed by an FFL in the buyer’s home state.”
Comedian Steven Crowder decided to put this to a test. He went to several gun shows with a hidden camera and attempted to buy a gun. It should have been easy for him considering Democrats like Obama and Hillary say that anyone, even criminals, can purchase a gun at these shows. Democrats would NEVER lie to the public, would they? Well, watch the video and find out.
Also, if you have any liberal anti-gun friends, please send them this article and explain to them that they are being manipulated by Democrats.
