WVVA is currently running a poll on the question of "Should background checks be required on all buyers at gun shows?" This question is being posed in connection with a story on the latest efforts by the Antis to close a loophole that does not exist.
Gun shows have no exemption from any federal or state firearm laws. All gun dealers must comply with the same laws regardless of whether a sale occurs at their normal place of business or at a gun show. In most states, private sales are also subject to identical treatment regardless of venue.
