Gun shows are dangerous because you are basically putting the guns out there for anyone to grab. People always say they want to take the guns out of the criminals hands but by having gun shows without having to show proper paper work or have proper background checks you are basically letting anyone have a gun. I believe that we should have gun shows but the guns should be safely secured in see through containers, background checks and having to show the proper paperwork should be mandatory.

I believe to some people guns are a 'hobby' or an interest; just like cars and art can be. Despite what some media commentators have claimed, existing gun laws apply just as much to gun shows as they do to any other place where guns are sold. Since 1938, persons selling firearms have been required to obtain a federal firearms license.

The proper paperwork is mandatory at gun shows so there is nothing to worry about, to stop the wrong person getting a gun, gun laws themselves need to be change.

If you should know, to enter a gun show, you must pass a background check. Same with purchasing a gun.
Just letting you know.

You should make this more specifically about the gun show loophole.
