    Background Checks have to be done for any sale by any "Gun Show Vendor" or anyone present at a Gun Show who is selling a firearm.

    Makes any exchange or sale by a private party while at a Gun Show illegal.

    The two provisions are somewhat redundant. If you have to use the NICS (which only an FFL can do), then you have to be an FFL to sell a gun.

    It's almost as if they wrote a law based on talking points with no idea what the current law actually is.
