In Jerry Zodin’s letter, “Some shouldn’t be able to own a gun,” Zodin states that there are no background checks at gun shows.
Zodin has obviously never been to a gun show. There are large areas of the show with people filling out background checks all day long.
Any gun vendor at the show with a legitimate gun business is required to have one filled out, just like at a store. The only sellers who are not required to do this are individuals who are selling their own collection and just renting a booth at the show. These sellers are not in the business of selling firearms; it’s a personal transaction. The selection is very limited and generally the guns are used.
I’m not against background checks, but I’m very against misinformation.
