Virginia allows private sales at gun shows, I'm not sure how many other states do presently, Florida did years ago. I understand that unmonitored private sales can occur anywhere but c'mon, allowing those kinds of sales at gun shows invites trouble.<quoted text>
Licensed dealers must perform the background checks. The license comes from the federal government, not the state. Anyone engaged in the business of selling firearms must obtain a FFL. There is no loophole.
Thereís only one inconsistency Iím aware of. In Georgia anyone with a firearms license isnít subjected to the background check with each purchase. In Florida everyone is subjected. My understanding is because the license is issued by the Dept. of Agriculture and not a law enforcement agency is the reason for that inconsistency.
Since Iíve not purchased arms in other states other than Florida and Georgia I donít have firsthand experience elsewhere.
Once again, gun owners rights is not my topic or cause.
