    I can't help but wonder if some criminal will happen to read about this "Loophole" in the paper one morning and learn that he could buy a gun at a gunshow instead of jacking it from somebody's house or car.

    Pretty soon there's like a big increase in criminals buying guns via private sale....

    The issue of criminals buying guns at gun shows is a smoke-screen and a joke! They can buy guns all day and night, in any alley, in any city in America for $100, with the serial numbers removed. Laws against gun show sales only hurt the law abiding citizen! We need to vote these clowns out on in November!

    In 1982 the city passed an ordinance [Sec 34-21][11]

    (a) In order to provide for the emergency management of the city, and further in order to provide for and protect the safety, security and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants, every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition therefore.


    (b) Exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who suffer a physical or mental disability which would prohibit them from using such a firearm. Further exempt from the effect of this section are those heads of households who are paupers or who conscientiously oppose maintaining firearms as a result of beliefs or religious doctrine, or persons convicted of a felony.

    Prominent gun right activist David Kopel has claimed that there is evidence that this gun law has reduced the incident rate of home burglaries citing that in the first year, home burglaries dropped from 65, to 26 in 1983, to 11 in 1984.[12] Another report observed a noticeably reduction in burglary from 1981, the year before the ordinance was passed, to 1999.[13]


    I think the above sniped from Wikipedia is why, take a look at the burglary rate, it dropped from 65 to 11 in 2 years, oh wait they don't want you to know about that in Chicago,sorry never mind.
