Columbus, Ohio Mayor Michael B. Coleman called out C&E Gun Shows by name in his recent State of the City address, claiming that "unlicensed firearms dealers" are selling guns to criminals at the events. Cam Edwards speaks with Annette Elliott of C&E who explains that while the mayor makes it sound as though all this criminal activity is going on, the statistics show that very few crime guns are traced back to gun shows-less than 1% according to the U.S. Department of Justice. She also points out that "unlicensed firearms dealers" means any gun owner who is selling from their own collection, and the law does not require them to do background checks.
