You're talking about illegal activity. Which was caught, just as it should be. The people they caught for this would have been arrested doing the same thing outside the gun show too.
Fair enough I understand your point. The way I read it was that you thought guns shows were squeaky clean and no illegal activity takes place which is obviously not the case. That is why I commented on it.
But I will disagree with your point about no loophole. IIRC only 5 states make it mandatory for all gun sales whether individual or FFL to do background checks. It needs to be mandatory in all 50 states and knowingly selling guns illegally should be met with stiff sentences for both buyer and seller.
