SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York (Reuters) – Former Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was in New York on Sunday to tour her first gun show since being shot in the head to review new measures that require background checks for buyers.

    It doesn’t say so explicitly but the story implies that in NY people could have bought guns at a gun show without a background check; although the show promoter says he has been running a background checks system for buyers for 30 years … huh?

    What was the deal reached with the NYAG? How is it different from other gun shows where buyers — me included at any show where I’ve bought a piece — had to pass the instant background check?

    Are there cops posted all around the grounds to prevent private deals between friends, relatives, other shoppers?

    Giffords & Kelly are 2nd A supporters like I’m an astronaut.
