    Then it’s a good thing no one proposed an oppressive law that removed the 2nd amendment.

    90% support is a lie! Yes 90% support for something that resembled the bill that was shot down. But it was the elected officials that read it and understood it that voted no. They understood that who they represent would not want what is in the bill. No 90% there. They read it and saw how knee jerk hap hazard the bill Obama cried about was put together.
    In a survey, you can get 90% to answer yes on about anything. “Are You in favor of gun background checks to but a gun?” Well duh um are they not doing that now? so ya we should be doing that. "
    reality? Yes, after the background check I just passed, burn the paperwork, I now own the gun and that is that. Reality, what was a loony lib gun hater wants and what was closer to what was in the bill? Here is your background check, now bend over so we can tag you and this gun. now make sure you only use 7 bullets at a time. and here is your trigger lock and gun safe and ooops i forgot to give you the combination, that will be mailed to you. have a nice day.

    100% of liberals will support you in the next crisis you want to hype and blame the R for.

    Here is an interesting thought…I wonder what the results would be if legislation to expand background checks to gun shows and private sellers was put on the next general election ballot nationwide in 2014, and voted on by the PEOPLE, not by the Congress?
    Just curious…

    IF you are really interested, then start NOW and get the paperwork going for that idea to be put on the ballot. You start a petition, I will sign it.

    Depite the claims of polls the majority of Americans did not support stricter gun support. Go back and look at the news, for every one story claiming the majority of Americans were for ever stricter gun control laws there were eight showing that gun sales were way up and that there were places where it was the exact opposite to stricter gun control. This was from around the country. There was just yesterday a news story that the AR-15 is selling in record numbers since these last few months. Stricter gun control laws aren’t going to stop gun crimes from happening as the only ones who tey will affect will be law abiding citizens, but the irony is those pushing for such don’t want to get that. They want to believe that if it becomes illegal folks won’t have it. There is a reason why so many of these crimes are already said to be carried out with illegal guns, and such crimes will continue whether or not there is stricter gun control.

    If stricter gun laws don’t work then why is gun violence down so much in Australia after they enacted strict gun laws?

    “voted on by the PEOPLE, not by the Congress?”


    I would sign your petition. I would also be more than willing to support the true will of the people in such an issue, regardless of how it impacts me. That’s democracy. My concern and I’m hoping not to appear cynical, but: many times in many states the people have voted on a bill, and the opposition didn’t like the results so they threw it into the courts and in many cases overturned the “will of the people.” California is a classic case of that with the gay marriage bill. It would also be nice if they wrote the proposed legislation so someone that didn’t go to law school could understand it..

    None of it is oppressive or violates the 2nd Amendment. Read it again to refresh your memory.

    @F6F5Hellcat

    You will also find that only 32% are doing all that gun buying.

    @Mr. King

    People voted for Obama because he still looked better than Romney, which isn’t saying much at all.

    You mean a response you can’t answer with logic, facts or support. Which is you and so many others here operates. Factless, hopeless and useless.
