NY Democrat Introduces Expanded Background Checks for Gun Shows – On May 19, Representative Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY)14% (D-NY-12th District) introduced legislation to expand background checks to gun shows. Titled the Gun Show Loophole Closing Act, Maloney’s legislation would require a background check on any private sale conducted at a gun show. Maloney did not name one criminal or high profile attacker who got his or her gun via a private sale at a gun show, but Breitbart News has named a plethora who got their guns via background checks.
