Typical. Do something for show that will have not effect on criminals whatsoever.
tomstromie: Everyone is a law abiding citizen until they break the law. And closing the source of potentially illegally purchased guns is not "for show."
martin64 Knee-jerk responses are intended to make people feel safe when in reality there is NO evidence this will result in any change in people who are mentally unstable causing damage. We don't check to see if people have DUIs on their record when they buy a car and if we did there is the potential they would borrow or steal one. We are ALL more likely to be involved in a fatal accident with an intoxicated driver than we ever will be with a firearm, regardless of how it was obtained!
Petronis said his group is a "nice, clean family-oriented ... arms fair" that brings in thousands of visitors and a lot of money for the city. He stressed that buyers at his show undergo background checks, as per New York state law. = How many sales are carried out in the parking lot that do NOT undergo background checks? I know because I've seen them in our area.
