Letter writer is off the mark on shot aimed at gun shows

— It used to be amusing, but now that our Constitution is under attack by the socialists that are now in charge, I cringe when I see letters by people like Judy Ann Kidd (The Goshen News Feb. 27) who claim a person can purchase a firearm at a gun show without any checks at all.

Let me state up front this is not a true statement. One has to go through the same checks at a show as if he or she were in a storefront. There is no loophole, period. That is a myth perpetuated by the lapdog media.

The Chicago newspaper that made the false claim Chicago guns come from Indiana gun shows is being irresponsible for perpetuating this lie. Of course the same newspaper will not admit the city’s punitive gun laws do not work, either.
