    No. 90% believe in background checks. Not universal checks. And not to mention the stats you have quotes have been very skewed tests based on 1-2k people. Not millions. As I have said...that is called a poor sample size in statistics.

    But it's not going to stop a damn person from selling a gun to their neighbor out of their home.

    Did you notice it said on POTENTIAL gun buyers? You know how many that could be?

    Exemptions are already being discussed as part of the bipartisan bill. Reductions in sales to criminals by expanding background checks are better than continuing to allow criminals to buy guns online and at gun shows in 40 states without a background check.

    What the 90% supported was background checks for all gun sales. Any legislation that gets passed will be less restrictive that what there is already 90% support for.

    I don't know why those who are knowledgeable on this subject, keep responding and egging people on... they will never listen to reality... let them start their threads and let them go dormant...

    Criminals aren't buying guns legally now, what difference is it going to make if you make law-abiding citizens to through background checks? It won't stop the criminals from getting guns. Or didn't you think about that?

    you continue to ignore the obvious. we oppose laws that have no chance of really working but rather, are designed to justify further encroachments on our rights

    I don't think any of us believe that crime control is what motivates Catawba. he has already admitted he wants a complete gun ban but he concedes "society is not ready for that". Thus he pushes for laws that help pave the way for complete gun bans

    If you want to keep your guns, oppose any law people like him try to enact

    What makes you possibly think that criminals are not taking advantage of the cheap and easy gun purchases at gun shows and online? Our goal is to make it more difficult and expensive for criminals to get guns than merely strolling into a gun show, plopping down some cash, and walking out with a gun.
