Sales at Gun Shows

Gun buyers in many states outside Illinois can avoid required background checks by seeking out unlicensed sellers at gun shows. This allows anyone to obtain a firearm with little to no oversight17.

Contact your U.S. representative to get rid of these gun-show loopholes by requiring these unlicensed sellers to conduct the same instant background checks as licensed dealers.
