A couple of weeks ago Alison Lundergan Grimes came out with an ad in which she was shooting a gun. In the ad she made the claim,“I’m not Barack Obama. I disagree with him on guns, coal and the EPA.” But later in interviews Grimes said she does agree with President Obama when it comes to “closing the gun show loophole.”
The problems is there is no such thing as a gun show loophole. This “loophole” they claim is nothing more than a transaction between private citizens. Anytime you purchase a gun from a licensed gun dealer, be it in a store or a gun show, you are required to file paperwork and obtain a background check.
Transactions between private citizens are not subject to background checks, even if performed in the parking lot at a gun show.
Obama and Grimes would love to be able to control all gun purchases. By putting the “gun show loophole” label on it they make it sound like it is some error in the law that needs corrected. In truth President Obama, and Alison Grimes by her own admission, would regulate sales between two law abiding private citizens.
How is it Alison Grimes can make the statement she disagrees with Obama on guns yet supports the entire foundation of his anti-second amendment policy? President Obama told us this past week that he is not on the ballot, but his policies definitely are. If Grimes is not telling us the truth on this then does she really disagree with Obama on other issues as well?
