NY Gun Shows Cave to AG on “Gun Show Loophole”

The gun control industry has been calling on legislators to “close the gun show loophole” for years. They’re aggravated not to say appalled by the idea that private citizens can buy and sell firearms at [some] gun shows without government supervision (i.e. without an FBI criminal background check). The fact that gun shows account for a statistically insignificant number of firearms used in violent crime, that there’s no scientific evidence proving that the FBI check prevents violent crime, is neither here nor there. Something must be done! In New York, what the gun grabbers can’t do through the legislature they’ve done through sheer intimidation. Check this from the AP [via wsj.com]:

Two major gun show operators have agreed to a set of rules that go beyond state law to thwart illegal sales, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced Thursday.

    “One cannot legislate the maniacs off the street … these maniacs can only be shut down by an armed citizenry. Indeed bad things can happen in nations where the citizenry is armed, but not as bad as those which seem to be threatening our disarmed citizenry in this country at this time.” – Jeff Cooper

    I truly can’t see why anybody with any common sense and self respect would want to live in New York City, the same city that Michael Bloomberg Dictates over with an iron Fist to his Subjects not citizens..

    These guys that caved have invested bucks in reservations and obligatory union help for setting up and breaking down. None of which is refundable. The shows are coming up. If they hired a lawyer to fight it, they would be out a bunch of bucks and the filthy N.Y. , Bloomberg puppet Attorney general would keep postponing the action until they had lost their socks.
    It’s the fault of the stupid N.Y. voters, who keep electing this small version of an evil munchkin to office.
    If those people are brain damaged enough to keep electing Rangel, Gillibrand, and Schumer, there is little anyone can do about it. Let ’em live with it. Go elsewhere to spend your money.l
