AR 10 Rifles Today
In 1995 ArmaLite was purchased by the owner of Eagle Arms and became ArmaLite Inc. Production began shortly thereafter on the AR 10B rifle series – however this rifle is based purely on the AR 15A2 and not on the AR 10’s original specs.
Gun show loophole is a political term in the United States referring to the sale of firearms by private sellers, including those done at gun shows, that do not require a federal background check of the buyer.
This is also called the private sale exemption. (Private sale and intrastate exemptions also exist under other provisions of federal law, e.g., federal securities law).
Under federal law, any person may sell a firearm to a federally unlicensed resident of the state where he resides as long as he or she does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the person is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms.
Under federal law, for sales of firearms by holders of a Federal Firearms License (FFL), such as gun stores, pawnshops, outdoors stores and other licensees, the seller must perform a background check of the buyer, and record the sale, regardless of whether the sale takes place at the seller’s regular place of business or at a gun show to see every shape of you by Ed Sheeran
Firearm sales between private individuals who reside in the same state – that is, sales in the “secondary market” – are exempt from these requirements.
For private sales, under federal law any unlicensed person may sell a firearm to an unlicensed resident of the same state as long as the seller does not know or have reasonable cause to believe the purchaser is prohibited from receiving or possessing firearms under federal law.
Twenty-two states and the District of Columbia have laws that require background checks for some or all private sales, including sales at gun shows.
In some of these states, such non-commercial sales must be done through a federally licensed dealer, who performs the background check and records the sale.
In other states, gun buyers must first obtain a license or permit from the state, which performs a background check before issuing the license (thus typically not requiring a duplicative background check from a gun dealer).
Since the mid-1990s, gun control advocates have campaigned for universal background checks. Advocates for gun rights have stated that there is no loophole,
that current laws provide a single, uniform set of rules for commercial gun sellers regardless of the place of sale, and that the United States Constitution does not empower the federal government to regulate non-commercial, intrastate transfers of legal firearms between private citizens.
