Where did the anti's ever come up with that number?

If there is no record of the transaction, how can they possibly give a number of no record private firearms sales, let alone know how many of those sales occur at a gun show?

So, the number is totally bogus. doesnt answer why no one ever challenges it.

Doesn't matter what you say, their minds have already been made up long ago.

I have challenged it, using the National Institute of Justice report mentioned in the article. In fact, I just got an email back from one journalist thanking me for finding the source for him, having conversed with him for the last week about whether the statistic (which he quoted in a story) was factual. But he was genuinely interested in facts, not rhetoric, so that is not likely to be a common experience for those who try.

I get tired of pointing this out but here goes again. Gun grabbers do not care about the truth they only care about getting our guns at ANY COST!!! Challenge what ever you want as much as you want but you won't get them to admit it or even see it.
