How will gun control laws have an impact on those who don't obey the laws
Laws don't prevent crime, Squishy.

But they can put criminals in jail and they can take their toys away.

That's right...your comprehension and application is wrong...again.
Loophole.

Maybe if you stomp your feet real hard, you can pretend draft dodger Romney is actually the president of the USA, too.

Funny how anyone who can read knows exactly what the gun show loophole is.

Even you, mooch.

" Known as the "gun show loophole," most states do not require background checks for firearms purchased at gun shows from private individuals -- federal law only requires licensed dealers to conduct checks.

Under the Gun Control Act of 1968, federal law clearly defined private sellers as anyone who sold no more than four firearms per year. But the 1986 Firearm Owners Protection Act lifted that restriction and loosely defined private sellers as people who do not rely on gun sales as the principal way of obtaining their livelihood.

“Today, private parties sometimes sell large numbers of new and used firearms while claiming hobbyist status and exemption from the requirements imposed on licensed retailers,” according to Inside Gun Shows: What Goes on When Everybody Thinks Nobody’s Watching, a 2009 report from the Violence Prevention Research Program at University of California Davis.

Some states have opted to go further than federal law by requiring background checks at gun shows for any gun transaction, federal license or not. Five states, most recently Colorado and Connecticut, mandate universal background checks, an even more stringent standard that imposes background checks on almost all gun purchases, including over the Internet."

"Study finds vast online marketplace for guns without background checks
By Philip Rucker,August 05, 2013

The marketplace for firearms on the Internet, where buyers are not required to undergo background checks, is so vast that advocates for stricter regulations now consider online sales a greater threat than the gun-show loophole."

Leftist/Statist logic:
_

I went to the store to buy some Fish Sticks but because I didn't buy the Fish Sticks at Food Lion the closest store to my home and purchased them at Giant. I have now made a "Loop-Hole" around buying Fish Sticks.

Although there are NO LAWS preventing me from buying Fish Sticks at either of the stores the Leftist views me as a criminal.

Damn! I called that one right! No sign of Danny Boy to answer the tough questions but sure enough his nasty, foul mouthed, mangy mutt shows up to fling some poo and attempt to deflect attention away from the cowardice of its master. I love being right.

To provide for a waiting period before the purchase of a handgun, and for the establishment of a national instant criminal background check system to be contacted by firearms dealers before the transfer of any firearm.

http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-103hr1025r ...

Mandated by the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act (Brady Act) of 1993, Public Law 103-159, the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) was established for Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) to contact by telephone, or other electronic means, for information to be supplied immediately on whether the transfer of a firearm would be in violation of Section 922 (g) or (n) of Title 18, United States Code, or state law.

http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/nics/general ...

It ONLY applies to sales by Federal Firearms Licensees (FFLs) DEALERS. It does NOT apply to “everyone”.

You are the one that insists you have the "right" to sell weapons to felons, you lying freeloading Momma's boy.
I haven't defended the criminal acts on anyone. You want to sell the weapons.
Tell your boyfriend to stop banging you against the headboard, your poor brain is rattling around.
"I haven't defended the criminal acts on anyone."

Liar...you don't want to prosecute those felons that are denied in a background check for committing another felony. YOU want to allow them to roam the street.

You're a pathetic, sick bytch.

Funny how you can't read and comprehend a simple law or your own definition.

Show me where a FFL dealer can make a legal sale without doing a background check unless excepted by the law...THAT would be a loophole.

Otherwise, you're still an ignorant, lying, POS, extremist, "frustrated control freak".

Two tables, full of guns, one gun show. One table requires a background check to make sure that they are selling a deadly firearm to a complete mental case.

The other requires cash.

Loophole.

You're still an ignorant, lying, POS, sausage sucking, extremist, "frustrated control freak" welfare parasite demanding special rights.
