    Obviously you agree, right? Or do you HATE democracy and don't think government should do what the majority want?
    One of the proposals from the Task force was to provide money to schools to increase security. It will be up to the schools to determine how best to do that, and I have no problem with that.

    Let's see the link that proves that "many" voters agree with that statement. All the polls I have seen, show 10% - 15% oppose background checks.

    "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.

    ONCE AGAIN, cite any crime committed with a firearm that would have not occured if the law required universal background checks.

    The gun shop industry wants universal background checks because they charge a fee. Government wants them if it can also charge a fee. What it comes down to is a claim the solution is to 1.) increase profits to gun shops and 2.) create a new tax.

    No suprises that it will come down to how to get money out of this and little more.

    Criminals don't run background checks on other criminals.

    Once again, that is not the purpose of expanding background checks. The purpose is reduce the accessibility of cheap guns to criminals in the 40 states where people with criminal records, or a mental derangement, can buy guns at gun shows by private sellers or advertised online by private sellers without a background check.

    The gun shop industry wants universal background checks because they charge a fee. Government wants them if it can also charge a fee. What it comes down to is a claim the solution is to 1.) increase profits to gun shops and 2.) create a new tax.

    No suprises that it will come down to how to get money out of this and little more.

    A new theory by the few on the far right that oppose background checks! :-)

    What the public supports is the expanding background checks to all gun buyers, and whatever is passed in this congress will be less restrictive than that. That has been my claim, that an overwhelming majority of voters support expanding background checks to all gun buyers.

    No one yet has disproved that public support.
