...And you won't, it's made up...second cousin to Harvey the Rabbit, an apparition. The 'polls and surveys' they quote incessantly have been exposed to be fraudulent either by design or by their fictional nature alone. Creators of some of their polls have come out and admitted they designed some of them with a certain biased outcome in mind. Even the 'sources' they list are by no means credible or relevant. If I were to go to Boston and ask people how they feel about the Yankees, I'd get an answer that I'D like to hear but it'd be far from being an accurate overall assessment.
The BC has been losing traction for years as even some of their own supporters know not to trust liars. From what I can gather, the 'loophole' they rant about is bogus, procedures are the same at a show as they are at a brick and mortar shop. It's true, some of the gun show salesmen are less than honest and often times do sell guns to people without following procedure whether is be turning a blind eye or knowingly allowing a straw sale.
The long and short of it...They're morons. Their state by state gun law ranking system, another horn they love to blow...(heh heh, blow...)
contradicts the very point they are trying to make. Their 'best states' have the highest rates of violent crime...(they forgot to include that I guess) while the 'worst states' have low violent crime rates. Unless you're just looking for a cheap laugh, don't put ANY stock into what they say. They prey on the fears and insecurities of people who they hope stay woefully ignorant of how things work out here in reality...
