    Re: Universal background checks

    I already responded to this question in another thread (there seem to be a LOT of these ). I don't think there is anything wrong with background checks. I think that is reasonable. I don't know how a private owner would be able to perform an adequate background check on a potential buyer though.

    What is your solution to that problem?

    Seventy-four percent of Americans, meanwhile, said that more armed security guards would help prevent mass shootings in public places.

    Oh, thanks for posting that. Now I know where the "90%" number is coming from.

    It should be noted that this poll only included 1110 people, which is why polls are not always accurate. I also read the 74% number on page 2. Good find.

    Not legislation.

    To legitimately override what is in the Constitution as it now stands requires a constitutional amendment.

    Let's see the amendment.

    If there was really the 85% to 90% support for the proposed background check that the far wrong keeps claiming, then there would certainly be a credible effort underway to ratify an amendment to allow it, if not a finished, ratified amendment already in effect. There is no such amendment, there is no credible effort to produce such an amendment, because there is nowhere near the support that it would take to even begin the process.

    On the whole, the article seemed well-enough written, but this bit jumped out at me,as a rather amazing cluster of ignorance…

    Today, the biggest social issue is gun violence, and the Second Amendment right that allows Americans to own all kinds guns, including powerful military style carbines like the Smith & Wessen [sic] M&P15 semi-automatic and Bushmasters used in recent public shootings.

    “…powerful military style carbines…”? By definition, isn't a carbine a relatively low-powered rifle, many of which take ammunition that is intended primarily for use in pistols? Certainly,the specific firearms named here are not carbines, being too powerful to be thus classified, although they are still less powerful than a common hunting rifle.

    Lol. I give them a pass. If they write for "news" or "media" and they aren't a gun magazine I doubt they understand guns. I mean the entire time the media numbskulls called a .223 a high powered rifle I laughed. A .308 is barely considered high powered and the military uses .50 BMG as an anti personnel weapon. A ..223 is hardly high powered.

    And a carbine is just a short barreled rifle designed for cavalry use. Anti gun nuts are pretty much defined by their lack of knowledge of the subject. One could fill a book (and they have I'm sure)
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    Where's the lie? All the national polls show the same same thing. You on the other hand have yet to post one credible poll that agrees with your position on background checks.

    The polls show an overwhelming majority of people want armed security in schools.

    Obviously you agree, right? Or do you HATE democracy and don't think government should do what the majority want?

    There is nothing in that story about background checks.



    EVEN CNN doesn't understand how to purchase a gun legally. There section on "universal background checks" is HILARIOUS.

    'Universal background check:' What does it mean? - CNN.com

    From your link, "The term "universal background checks," used by some gun control supporters, is code for closing federal loopholes so that such checks will be conducted at gun shows and other private sales."

    "Expanded background checks now enjoy the support of mayors in some of the largest cities in America. The idea has been embraced by gun violence survivor Gabrielle Giffords, a self-described gun owner.

    "This may be the single most important gun violence prevention measure that the government could adopt," said Lindsay Nichols, an attorney with the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. "This loophole means that dangerous criminals and dangerously mentally ill individuals have a most unfettered access to firearms."


    No poll in your story there either to suggest there are is any opposition from the public to the expanded background checks except from the far right.
