Ky newspaper picks up on the "flea market loophole"
The media once again goes out with a story that repeats whatever an official wants to tell them. In this case, an ATFE agent saying that (1) lots of criminals buy guns at flea markets (last study I saw indicated a bit over 1% do, the same as with gun shows) and (2) they're driving from NY to Kentucky to get around NY's gun laws.
As to the latter -- if a criminal is willing to drive from NY to KY to get a gun, you probably aren't going to stop him from getting a gun by imposing a few more rules. He can probably find locally stolen ones much more easily. I note the photos of the flea market show rifles, not handguns, which tallies my experience with such.... a fair number of rifles, a few handguns, and those largely old revolvers, H&R .32's, that manner of thing. Which rather rules out a profit even for someone intent on buying a load to sell illegally.
