"It's really scary when you look through the online want- ads seeking private sellers," said Lanae Erickson, a policy director at Third Way. "Why would you need to buy it from a private seller unless you are trying to get around the background check?"

How about saving money on a used instead of a new gun thru a dealer...?

There is NO "loophole". That's just the "frustrated control freaks" attempt to change definitions to fit their agenda.

Based on the logic, anything for sale, trade, barter or for services, should be done only through government approved license holders. That way we can insure no one has anything scary or in abundance. Yep, government control will make everything better.
