We do have OPEN season on invasive species,so let them come if they dare!

I remember 20 years ago when gun friendly Colorado encouraged the Urban Liberals to their state. They are now suffering under a majority of Liberals and California style gun control.

The only County she could hope of carrying is Travis and even that is iffy with her pro-gun stance. It will be a cold day in Hell before there is another Dem in the Governor's mansion.

But, hey. I'd hit it

These transactions are totally unregulated, and there is a small percentage that attend specifically to do off book transactions. At shows that try to limit sales to those with tables, guys will sell in the parking lot, or across the street.

I've also witnessed several obvious straw purchases at gun shows. One guy will check out a table, and select a handgun. He then goes somewhere else, and hands his buddy money, and the buddy goes back to the table and makes the buy.

It's impossible to stop straw purchases unless the dealer actually saw money trade hands from the persons attempting to make a straw purchase,whether it's at a gun show or a store front.
I,as an individual gun owner can sell any gun I want (No Class 3) without any background check to the purchaser,and there's nothing illegal with me selling my personal property to anyone I deem legal to own it.
I always fill out a bill of sale for any firearm transaction whether I'm selling or buying from an individual,and require the other person to let me write down all of their personal information such as a drivers license #,name,address,and phone #.
If they refuse to give me that information,then they do not buy/sell the weapon,it's that simple.

So what? It's not against the law to sell your own property. Gun shows make it easy to find a buyer, but I could just as easily go on Armslist or Texas Gun Trader and sell or buy a gun right now. No background check needed as long as I can make the purchase face-to-face.

Straw purchases should be illegal! Oh wait! They are!

That's the problem with laws. No matter how many you break, people just keep breaking them. Maybe we should make a law that says it's illegal to break the law.

Not that I'm ok with people breaking the law and the whole straw purchase thing kind of pisses me off, but this is something that does happen and it is hardly unique to gun shows.
