Should there be background checks on all gun sales at gun shows?

A Quinnipiac poll of voters in New Jersey, Virginia and Pennsylvania shows nearly unanimous support for background checks at gun shows. The shift toward greater regulation is notable in Virginia, home to the National Rifle Association. NRA President David Keene has said gun-show checks would a great burden on individual gun sellers and would not deter criminals from buying firearms. In Connecticut, long guns can be sold by private citizens at gun shows with no background checks. What's your view?
