Lawmakers met in Chicago to discuss the legislation to close the gun show loophole. This would require private individuals to carry out a background check on the buyer before they sell a gun. This bit is on the Brady, Bloomberg, Daley wish list and that alone is reason enough to oppose what Jody Weis, Superintendent of Chicago Police and Richard Daley’s bitch, calls "common sense legislation". What's "common sense" about this solution in search of a problem. The so called loophole refers to a person, who is not in the business of selling guns, selling a personal weapon. Opponents claims criminals get their guns from these sales but can't offer valid proof of their claim. The "loophole" bills are more concerned with making the bureaucracy of running a gun show so onerous as to make them impossible and unprofitable. It doesn't solve the "problem" of Joe Citizen selling his gun in a private sale. It only changes the venue. That's not "common sense" just common.
H/T to Jeff.
