    I do not believe that it was clear to the respondents of the survey. No attempt was made to make sure it was to be universal.

    Ridiculous argument! Who does "all potential gun buyers" not cover?

    a poll like this demonstrates rather conclusively how the far right dominates this site out all all proportion compared to their relative size among the general public.

    What is not clear it applying to all potential gun sellers. I assume that the people responding was thinking of just licensed gun dealers or at most including dealers at gun shows.

    So far it appears that under the survey by the Pew Research Center did state private gun sales and sales at gun shows having background checks is at 85%. We'll see if it keeps that strong when actual proposals are discussed and the monetary costs of using these background checks are reveled.

    90% of voters and the admirals and generals do not interpret the Constitution the way the far right does.

    The Pew Poll shows 85% support among gun owners for background checks for "all potential gun buyers"!
