Study: Criminals Don't Use the "Gun
Show Loophole" to Get Their Guns

The takeaway of this study seems to be that even when a "universal background check" system is in place, the criminals will continue to ignore it. Money is everything, such that criminals willfully break the law and illegal guns continue to flow onto the streets - rarely obtained from legal sources or gun shows. The antis of course continue to insist that legal sources are to blame, and so want to further regulate those.

By Nick Leghorn. September 2nd, 2015

Gun control activists are quick to demand that the "gun show loophole" be closed in order to reduce the number of firearms related fatalities and guns in the hands of criminals. Their thought process is fairly logical, but very closed minded:

Criminals have to get their guns somewhere, and since private party sales aren't subject to a background check then obviously that must be the point of entry for illegal guns! If only we could force everyone to get a background check to buy a gun the problem would be solved! There's just one issue with that line of thinking: it bears no resemblance whatsoever to the reality "on the street." Criminals aren't buying their guns from gun shows or legal sources, at least according to a study released a couple of days ago.

The study, titled "Sources of guns to dangerous people: What we learn by asking them" and released in the Journal of Preventative Medicine, is a survey of criminals to determine where they got the guns they used in crimes ...... -->
