    As long as universal gun registry does not go along with the checks. but that is the problem you can never keep that from happening because if you have universal checks you will have universal registry

    Universal back ground checks leads to universal registry which leads to universal confiscation just ask the Russians the Germans hell just ask a Canadian

    Check out the poll by the most respected polling organization I referenced above:

    "More than eight-in-ten gun owners support proposals to require background checks on private gun sales and at gun shows."

    go to the question that the so called support comes from: "Do you favor or oppose a federal law requiring background checks on all potential gunbuyers?" doesn't make clear that non dealers would apply to the question.

The people who used WMD and mass murdered people in the United States in the past 20 years would not have passed the Israeli scrutiny.

    We are discussing the United States of America and background checks not Israel and their laws and which are not bound by the US Constitution.

    The weapons that we are discussing are NOT WMDs even a full auto machine gun is not a WMD. And the only WMDs that mass murdered people in the US are improvised bombs like the Alfred E Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma and the planes that was run into the World Trade Center in NY.


    As far as handguns for collection, security or guns for hunting or sport possibly less stringent checks.
    I'm glad that you are one who doesn't think all guns are bad, but keep in mind that some times one will need a weapon with some firepower and penetration like at home.

    I support second amendment rights yet I am sick of pussy men that think they need WMD to "feel" safe.
    It is not a matter of "feel" nor just a matter of just men needing the guns.

    Oh and idiots ... lock your guns up and quit toting them around in public. Oh and another thought ... all of you who are scared ****less without your weapons ... You cannot bring them with you when you come to the hospitals with your diseases of lifestyle or your wounds of violence.
    And just when I thought you would be reasonable you put up this. From this comment it seems that you would allow people to have guns but they cannot carry them nor have them available if the need arises. Then you imply that the people who want to use their right to bear arms are the same people who have violent lifestyles. Mabye you should consider that those who want to bear arms are not criminally inclined but want to protect themselves and others of those who are thus inclined.

    Get a grip people.
    This applies to all people.

    What part of "all potential gun buyers" is unclear to you?

    The OP is about the poll I quoted. Do you have a link to the poll you are quoting?
