    This was posted on GlockTalk with the post "If you had to ask, this is a photoshopped pic, but is going to be used as an anti "Gun show loophole" billboard in VA." Currently looks like the picture is hosted on a Facebook page, more than likely an anti-gun group... or I guess it could be someone's personal page.


    I tried going to the web address in the image but it isn't live/registered yet. Anybody with web space and the spare change to register a domain name want to go ahead and nab it and turn it into a pro-2A/pro-gunshow website?

    godaddy.com will host this and a few variations for 15.00 a month.... I'd do it if I used banks.

    That's a dumb ass ad. Anyone with a little sense should see right through it.

    You gotta say, it's a monumentally dumb person to put out a graphic with a web site name if they haven't already secured it. Even if they don't want to use the site to promote their own cause, someone opposed to their cause can get it and promote against them.

    Any info on the source of the pic? Even if photoshopped somebody took the original pic at the gun show. If they swiped it from someone's webpage without their permission, or if some anti-gunner on the leased expo center property took the pic without the gun show's or expo center's permission, trouble might be had since they are defaming the Dullex Expo center's good name by making it seem "evil"...:?

    Pretty good graphic concept. Reminds me of the ones that Oleg Vok does on the pro side. If you like Oleg's stuff, you could like this one too.

    Now he can sue for royalties.

    While the quality of the ad is good the content is ridiculous. Who would sell someone a gun at a show without knowing their name that wouldn't due it on the streets a block away if the antis get their mandatory background checks at shows? The logic fails me.

    The style is not intellectual property. Oleg didn't start that style. Many people before him have used and will continue to use that style of mixing a photo with a pithy test insert.

    My humble opinion is that thethe answer to this question is "LOTS."

    The situational characteristics of the open market at gun shows, especially large ones, facilitate private gun sales extraordinarily more than a place "a block away."

    C'mon. Everyone kinow that.

    Think of it this way. Let's say you're driving up to the big hall somewhere in your state for the gun show. You are looking to maybe sell a nice pistol you don't shoot anymore and you want to buy an AR. Mebbe do a trade with some cash....

    As you are nearing the hall, you see a half dozen guys hanging around the 7-11 "a block away" from the gun show.Some appear to have firearms and they're just milling about. Probabyprivate sellers. You could stop there. The venue charges $5 to park and $8 to get in. You could go there.

    Which one do you choose?

    Nah, there's no way out of the fact that gun shows facilitate, significantly, private gun sales.

    And that, sir, means that the above photoshop job's contentcannot possibly be..."ridiculous."

    Hank, if you're going to troll, at least please try to keep up.

    One of the individuals in the photo bears a recognizable resemblance to a member here. Any publisher, commercial printer, photo repository, worth their salt will not allow the use of a recognizable individual without a model's release.

    That is what we're talking about. Now troll.

    Cool... keep an eye on the stats for referral sites, you might be able to get an idea of where this graphic is being used.

    New sites sometimes take a few hours to propagate through the interwebs' DNS servers... it will eventually work.

    proshooter, you may also try doing disc cleanup. Sometimes mine won't do any "new stuff" unless I clean things up. I do it at least once a day if I'm surfin the web, but I may not have much memory of some sort.

    That (or something like it) is always there. You can get "free" admissionif you sign up as an NRA member on the spot.

    Well your humble opinion is wrong. Why don't you take your head out of your ass, and think for yourself instead of reading out of the Brady Campaign's playbook? I've been to almost every Chantilly and Dale City gun show and a few others in this state since 2005. I can count less than 10 "private sellers" in line before the show starts, and just as many or less after the show opens inside. Typically these people are selling $1000+ rifles, usually hunting or 'sporting' rifles. What thug wants to walk around the hood with a grand's worth of walnut and blued steel with a 5rd mag in a high recoiling cartridge when they can go to their nearest street corner or back alley illicit dealer and get something much more 'appropriate' for their 'needs'?

    The fact you do not list VA as your location really places doubt in my mind whether you're qualified to have an opinion in this thread.

    The anti's goal isn't just to outlaw private sales at gun shows, it's to eventually outlaw all private sales, to require 'remote' registration (remember ATF can inspect dealer records, and if a dealer closes shop they have to turn in their bound book to the ATF...what do you think the ATF does with these records?) and what does registration lead to? Confiscation.
