Where? I bought my Glock 17 G3 and S&W 686 6" at gun shows and got background checked each and every time.

Oh. I get it. You mean that he was being - well - a democrat.
Never mind.

Then you bought them from dealers, not private citizens.

Gun sales at shows by private citizens do not require a background check any more than buying a car from a private owner according to the law.

If a licensed dealer sells a gun at a show THEY are required to run a standard background check.

That, I did not know. Thank you va_tazdad.
I've always bought new from dealers, for the warranty if something should be wrong with the weapon.
I would, however, consider a private purchase of an FA ACR 5.56 ;-)

What does it give?
The constitution places legal limitations on government.

Rights themselves are naturally inherent at birth...or god given. Read the first clause, second paragraph of the US Declaration of Independance, where it states exactly what I said.

Real men know how tell if a firearm is inoperative and even if it was, they'd know how to fix it.

I bought a used Armalite AR180 from a private individual at a gun show. Took it home and while inspecting it, determined that the firearm had a broken extractor. I noticed the bolt used the same extractor as an AR15 bolt, swapped them out from an AR15 bolt in one of my rifles and the firearm worked flawless. Then next day, I went to the same gun show, bought an AR15 extractor, pin and spring for 5.99 at a gun table for AR parts. I then went over to the guy that sold me my used Armalite and told him that it was nice that he sold me that gun for 700.00 instead of the 850.00 the used ones at the show were fetching and that for 6 dollars I'd have the broken extractor replaced at my cost. That dude was pissed that he gave away that rifle for 100 bucks under the others, LOL.

But anywhoo, if you can't smith on your own firearms, you better stick with new guns...and quite possibly the ladies models in pink or other ladies colors so we know to extend the correct courtesy to you when we see you at the range with your boutique rifles.
