Crazy Ted Cruz Claims Gun Show Loophole Doesn't Exist

On NBC's "Meet the Press" this Sunday, our new senator Ted Cruz said this:

"You know, there actually isn't the so-called 'gun show loophole.' That doesn't exist. Any licensed firearm dealer who sells at a gun show has to have a background check.  It's a requirement that applies to every licensed firearm dealer. What it doesn't apply to is personal sales one on one. And that's true whether it's at a gun show or not."

But...the lack of a law requiring background checks when buying from private dealers IS the gun show loophole. Indeed, Columbine killer Eric Harris said this in his last year of life: "If we can save up about $200 real quick...we can go to the next gun show and find a private dealer and buy ourselves some bad-ass AB-10 machine pistols."

This insane loophole doesn't just exist at gun shows - it includes all private sales of guns anywhere. Is there a loophole that removes a lunatic senator from office for spewing too much sewage and too many lies? No, but that's one loophole I could live with.
