Between 1968 and 1986, gun dealers were prohibited from selling firearms at gun shows. The restrictive Gun Control Act of 1968 prevented Federal Firearms License (FFL) holders from gun show sales by ordering all sales to take place at the dealer’s place of business. However, the Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 reversed that portion of the Gun Control Act. Today, BATFE estimates place the percentage of weapons sold at gun shows by licensed dealers between 50% and 75%.
We get that dealers are required to check in 33 of the states. What is desired is a federal law that mandates checks everywhere, at any sale where people are brought together to exchange guns. I don't see why there should be a difference between being a personal seller or a dealer. One person is selling a gun to another. No reason to pass going through a check.

Where is your "polling" data? Who did the poll?

When will you retards understand that ALL firearm transfers that involve dealers ARE ALREADY REQUIRED BY LAW TO DO A NICS CHECK?
Where are the statisctics showing that criminals go to gun shows and get guns?
Maybe if the libtards would pay attention to FBI stats and factual studies, they would know that your insinuations about background checks not being done is complete horseshit and you libtard "gun haters" know it.
Show your polls/facts/LIES.
