So exactly which words in your link constitute a loophole? What you linked to is not the actual law, it is a summary. It seems you are evading a direct answer to my question.
If the word loophole is defined as "an ambiguity or omission in the text through which the intent of a statute, contract, or obligation may be evaded." then you need to show that the law requires that all sales require a bkgd check but for some reason an unlicensed individual is able to legally evade the law requiring it.
In fact federal law has never required a bkgd check for the transfer of a title 1 firearm (long gun, shotgun or handgun). It only allows FFL's to use NICS to obtain a bkgd check. The fact that an unlicensed person such as myself is prohibited access to the bkgd check system is not a loophole.

The USA is not "their country" if they're here illegally.
Just because a person wants to serve, doesn't mean they are worthy of serving. All adult illegal aliens are breaking the law by remaining in the USA after illegally entering or overstaying a visa for example. Unless there was a recent change to federal law, there is no way for them to legally enlist or gain a commission in the military. The military is considering recruiting illegal aliens who entered the USA as children.
As for those adults who entered the USA illegally, I don't care to see anyone of them in the military seeing as how little respect they seem to have for the law in general.
