Are gun sales arranged online a 'loophole'?

In the end, there is no "internet gun sale loophole." Gun sales arranged online are subject to every state, federal and local law imposed on every other gun sale in the same jurisdiction. The internet's only role is facilitating potential buyers finding potential sellers.

The goal here, just as with all the rhetoric about the "gun show loophole," is the outright prohibition of the "loophole" of
all private sales. And yes--when a gun sale subjects the would-be buyer to a criminal (and increasingly, medical) background check by the FBI, it is not a "private" sale, by any sane use of the word, whether the seller is a federally licensed gun dealer or not.

We're not going to take it. [More]
