NAT’L – RETAILERS – Gun sales find an easy path online

As the gun debate grinds on, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that the loophole exempting private sales from background checks in many states — including Minnesota — merits more serious attention.

But in retrospect, this innocuous-sounding piece of legislation contained the seeds that sprouted into the expanded-background-check debate now underway yet again on Capitol Hill. “There was no real logic to it,” said Sen.
