    And this issue will not die.

    ...and everytime the Dems try to push a big gun control bill, like Feinstein's new monster AWB, they lose seats in the House....

    If that is true, then I would say that 93% of Americans don't understand the implications fully.

    BS.

    93 percent of Americans in Berkley are in favor of expanding background checks. Most Americans see it for what it is, a way of encroaching more and more on the 2nd amendment.

    How are background checks against the Constitution?

    I'm sure percentages bother you when you think a right you actually favor is on the line.
