How many guns bought using the gun show loophole have actually been used in gun crimes? How do supporters of closing that loophole expect it to be enforced? Isn’t that law a toothless tiger?

Not one of them. There *is no* “gun-show loophole. It doesn’t exist. A licensed gun-dealer who sells at a gun-show must do a background check on all buyers with the NICS database just the same as he would at his own store. The problem is that individual private sellers *cannot* access the NICS database — thank you very much, ACLU — and therefore cannot do background checks.

So there's an important loophole that allows firearms dealers to lie to would-be firearm buyers: [T]he fact that there is no “gun-show loophole” does not mean that the [NICE check] is effective. Gun dealers at gun shows have to get a customer's signature on a contract stating the gun will be returned if the buyer refuses to sign in return for a certain price. This is the signature that the NICE checks are designed to detect. But this requirement is so vague, and so difficult to enforce, that many gun dealers simply refuse to use it at all, or merely ask their customers to sign something indicating that they are not a prohibited person. Indeed, one study found that 75 percent of the firearms dealers interviewed had not employed this one requirement in the past. But that isn't the end of the loophole: This lack of enforcement makes it even easier.
