The ATF reports that between 25 to 50 percent of firearm vendors at gun shows are unlicensed.
This statement sound suscpiciously vauge and fishy. First, 25 to 50 percent is an awfully big margin of error to be credible. Secondly, what exactly constitutes a "vendor?" I'd say that a good 25% or more of the people sitting behind tables at gunshows aren't licensed, but then again they don't need to be. The "vendors" I'm referring to aren't selling guns, they're selling ammunition, magazines, books, helmets, holsters, grips, knives, reloading supplies, targets, bumpers stickers, beef jerky, and fudge. Heck, many of the gun shows I used to attend were frequented by a lady that sold stuffed animals. These people are all technically vendors, yet none of them are selling firearms.
