    Q: Do you want to own firearms?

    a) Yes
    b) No

    If you answered a), how long have you been mentally ill?

    Nothing wrong with beloning to the far-right.

    Nope, just as long as you realize they only represent about 10% - 15% of the voters on the background check issue. That was the point being made that you responded to.

    It's definitely preferable to being on the far wrong.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Are you still clinging to this lie? It was disproven weeks ago. All you accomplish by continuing to repeat it is to make yourself look like a dishonest fool.

    BS! You have yet to show any credible national poll to back your claim that more than 10% - 15% oppose background checks for all gun sales.

    Several have been cited in the course of this thread. You define “credible” to only include that which supports your lies.

    If there was really the 85% to 90% support that you claim for these background checks, then there would be a credible effort underway—if not already completed—to amend the Constitution to allow it. There is no such effort underway, because nobody credibly believes that there is anywhere near enough support for such an amendment to give it any chance of passing; and the support that it would take to ensure passage of such an amendment is far less than the 85% to 90% that you claim there is.

    More BS blah, blah, blah from you! When you can post some facts to back up your claims that your position is not the extreme minority of voters feel free to do so!

    Isn't the idea of a constitutional republic supposed to be that the rights of the minority are protected against the whims of the majority? What if 90% of people were in favor of quartering soldiers in people's homes?

    You are bringing up a separate issue, whether the 10% - 15% of those that oppose background checks are right or not. That has nothing to do with the poll results that show 85% - 90% of voters support background checks for all gun sales.
