You clearly didn't believe private sales happened at gun shows. I'm not interested in arguing semantics, and calling it the gun show loop hole whether you agree with the terminology or not, is a very common way of referring to it.

Show me proof of a single person going to a gun show and purchasing a firearm without a background check.

I gave you the proof you wanted.

If i go to a gun show, half the boothes I'd get back ground checked at to make a purchase. The other half i wouldn't. Having a private sale not require a back ground check is a work around to needing to have a back ground check to purchase a gun. Commonly called a loophole.

You are trying to nitpick semantics that don't matter. Most private sales i know of have occurred at gun shows because that's where people are looking to buy guns and it is a monitored and safe environment to do that in

.... you asked for proof, insisting private sales don't happen at gun shows.

Where did those goal posts run off to...

~I could be wrong, but I'm like 90% sure you cant buy a gun in a state you don't have residency in. Granted that is for retail sales, not private. They really need to crack down on straw purchases

edit: some quick google fu looks like you can't buy hand guns out of state without having them transfered to a ffl in your state of residency who you can then pick it up from. Long gun laws depend on the state and some allow cross state sales and some don't

Well i agree the recent major shootings have used similar rifles, but keep in mind, Virginia Tech was a couple hand guns, there was an AK in a mall, dc snipers with i think it was a bolt action or m1 can't remember, columbine was hand guns.

I think it may partially be some copy cat tendencies to use a similar weapon. An ar-15 is definitely a scary weapon to be facing in a mass shooting, but it's a more complex issue than just a single gun or type of gun. There is a reason there are generally stricter laws on hand guns than rifles since they are easier to conceal. But maybe the stricter laws also play in to their not being used in mass shootings as much, I'd have to look at dates of laws etc. But hey, maybe it is working for hand guns

Dude, seriously... you can totally rent a booth etc at a gun show as a private citizen and sell your guns in most states. Heres the page for the sign up form for one of the major hosts in my state.

/u/bolshevikmuppet is totally right here

edit: heres another specifically inviting people to sell privately http://www.bigboreenterprise.com/

I'm a gun owner and fuck the nra. It's just a bunch of fear mongering, industry assholes trying to sell more guns through fear which also drives my damn ammo prices up.. fuck em. They stopped caring about anything but selling guns long ago.

I’ve actually got a masters, degree and bachelor. My masters had to research based elective in so forgive me if I think I know a thing or two about population sampling and statistics. How many degrees have you got?

Holy jesus you must be so smart! I'm sure that's why you know more than a world renowned polling company.

I mean, that research only showed that about 50% of console owners are women. But you clearly know better. I mean, you did cite so many sources.

Enjoy /r/iamverysmart

You need to go read up on statistical sampling and polling methods.. You only need a sample population of approximately 1000 people to get an accurate statistical model of an entire population. Most political polls use about 800-1200 participants for the entire country.

Making games less appealing to your core audience and bleeding sales to pick up a fraction of these sales from women sounds like a great way to alienate your core audience and filing for chapter 11

I'm not sure how many more ways I can say this to you, I'm not talking about changing current games to "cater" to anyone.

I'm saying that there is a large population of people that don't currently buy video games. If someone finds out what kind of video games those people would buy, or how to market those current games to get them to buy them, then that reaches in to a very large untapped market.

That is all.. Full stop..

You are the one rambling on about catering to people and garbage. The whole thread started off with someone saying that it makes sense that video games cater to men because men play video games. That is a self fulfilling statement. If you only make things for one audience, you are only going to get one audience.

A game girls really like may not be the same game that guys like. The girls who like it would be the "core" audience for that game and catering to the "traditional" gamer as you see them, wouldn't make sense.

Ancient Roman women would go watch the fights in the colloseum. There were even female gladiators that would fight. I'm not sure how you think you could be having an intellectual debate when you are just pulling "facts" out of thin air.

No problem. They like to try and hide it to keep their content up as long as possible.

almost no women play them or own gaming PC’s (<5%)

Where the hell are you getting your numbers?

What makes me laugh is that idiots like you think that big business just don’t like money and haven’t tried everything

/facepalm ... I'm just saying no one has come up with it yet, not that they aren't/haven't tried.

You just said they don't like video games because they find them boring. So why wouldn't they like a video game they don't find boring? Stardew valley, animal crossing, and the Sims are all games that women i personally know play and enjoy.

If women don't like video games because they find them boring like you claim, then clearly they are an untapped market. If you can develop a game that they don't find boring you could make a shitton of money off of this new market segment.

And cars haven't been self driving for 50 years.. What's your point? That's not a real good reason as to why they wouldn't ever be interested in teh future.

King DedeDad by 118829 in gaming

[–]Meepster23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

so, again, why are they not interested in video games?

Why do you think they would never be interested?

Wtf are you talking about? I'm not saying there is some conspiracy against women in gaming. Literally all I'm saying is there is a large untapped market out there that exists if someone finds the right thing.

King DedeDad by 118829 in gaming

[–]Meepster23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah that's a definite possibility. And a reason to market games to women to break that preconception
