Do you favor universal background checks?

Ninety-two percent of Americans favor background checks for all potential gun buyers, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll.

Universal background checks are one of the proposals that President Obama has called on Congress to pass as part of his proposal to combat gun violence in the wake of the massacre in a Newtown, Conn., elementary school in December.

Licensed gun dealers already must run background checks, but unlicensed dealers and private sellers, many of whom sell guns at gun shows or over the internet, are not required to do so.

Support for universal background checks went across party lines:
89 percent of Republicans
93 percent of Democrats and Independents were in favor
93 percent of gun households
85 percent of those living in a household with a member of the National Rifle Association

I'm 100% for any law abiding american being able to own anything on the market, but this is just common sense 101 stuff.

No, criminals dont need it because much of their stock comes off the street... but the "criminals wont use it" angle is a big fat strawman, it has nothing to do with it.
It has EVERYTHING to do with it. JFC, are people really this stupid? I thought the idea was to keep guns out of the criminals' hands, now you're saying that isn't the issue. What pray tell is the issue then?

Un****ingbelievable....

I'm sorry, but buying a gun does not equate to say raping someone. Your point is pure fail.

These laws ONLY affect the non-criminal. Which renders completely pointless.



Unless of course the idea is turn the non-criminal into a criminal.....

Yeah, it IS un****ingbelievable... what you're saying.

A good way to make sure criminals dont get a large percentage of them is to MAKE SURE THEY CANT BUY THEM BY USING A BACKGROUND CHECK.

Go ahead and chase your tails in this ****ing thread, what a zoo.

I can agree with that. But when creating regulations like this, it absolutely must be determined whether the regulation will be effective for what it's intended for, as opposed to just a detriment to law abiding citizens. We're still focusing on the criminal right? There has to be some level of enforceability and confidence it will work.

Yeah, because the black market dealer on the street is going to run background checks on his hoodlum customers to make sure he can sell to them.

These laws do NOT hinder criminal gun purchases. Anyone who believes so is nothing short of a moron. Sorry but, that is the short of it.

Look, if nothing else a check before being able to purchase will keep non-criminal but people with perhaps a history of mental illness from being able to buy them.

Of course real criminals will skirt any measure brought out, but there are a whole slew of people out there who, while they may not have a criminal record, still have no business owning a firearm.

ITS NOT a cure all, and i never said that... on the other hand, its just a damn check, you have to have one at Cabelas, so why not the gun show?

No, it just creates more criminals once people get fed up with the bullshit and start going around the background checks. It will happen.
