Maybe this is why criminals don’t tend to hang around gun shows.
Police arrested a man wantedÂ by the lawÂ at the Harrisburg gun show. He was trying to buy a firearm, but one dealer realized something was wrong. “He was wanted,” said show manager show manager Nick Jubinski. “State Police came over, picked him up and arrested him.”
A salesperson learned about the suspect’s wanted status on the phone through the PennsylvaniaÂ Insta-Check system.
Vendors like Jack Shuttleworth are required to dial before dealing. “We don’t dare sell any gun without doing a background check on it,” said Shuttleworth.
Read the whole thing.Â Kind of flies in the face of the Brady Campaign accusations that gun shows are unregulated bazaars of criminal mischief.

Too bad because the NICS check is essentially part of the Brady bill.

Sounds like the so-called loophole is actually just a catch loop, like on the end of a lariat.
Does Brady know about this, I suppose not, they will NO about this.
