Tell us Jacques, just how will expanding background checks for buy guns prevent criminals and crazy people from obtaining guns?
Remember, it was LBJ and Jimmy Carter who left the crazy people out of the mental hospitals!

Gun Poll: Background Checks Supported By 92% Of Americans / The Huffington Post | By Ariel Edwards-Levy : 01/17/2013

Universal background checks on gun buyers are favored by 92 percent of Americans, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Thursday.

The FauxNews poll says it is only 85%. Much more credible

Things the pollsters do not tell you about what is really going to happen. Tell us, do you understand ObamaCare?

UNTANGLING THE SPIN: POLLING ON BACKGROUND CHECKS HIGHLY MISLEADING / DAN HOLLER | APRIL 16, 2013

Throughout the ongoing gun control debate, polls citing overwhelming support for expanded background checks have been the norm. Today’s ABC News/Washington Post poll was no different:

With a vote on gun control measures pending, 86 percent support extending background checks to gun sales at gun shows and online.… Notably, though, even among gun owners and those who think guns make a home safer, 86 and 82 percent, respectively, support expanded background checks.

Sounds convincing, doesn’t it?

President Obama sure thinks so. Last week, he urged Americans to “find out where your member of Congress stands on this. If they’re not part of the 90 percent of Americans who agree on background checks, then ask them, why not?”

The real question is what do YOU mean by “background checks” Mr. President?

Are 90 percent of Americans really in favor of requiring a background check to borrow a friend’s hunting rifle? In the original Reid bill (which was the pending bill when Pres. Obama issued his call to action), borrowing a friend’s hunting rifle without a background check would be a felony.

Are 90 percent of Americans really in favor of requiring a background check to buy a firearm advertised on the local church bulletin board? The Schumer-Toomy-Manchin Amendment would require such a check.

Are 90 percent of Americans really in favor of requiring a background check if it cost law-abiding gun owners $125? According to Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), the Schumer-Toomey-Manchin Amendment would “charge a $30 to $50 and up to a $125 fee, creating a new de facto tax on guns.”

Are 90 percent of Americans really in favor of expanded background checks if it weakens mental health privacy laws? According to Heritage, the Schumer-Toomey-Manchin Amendment “reduces existing privacy protection for mental health records relevant to background checks.”

These are the questions the polls do not ask, but these are the questions that matter to law-abiding Americans. And on the questions that matter, 90 percent isn’t 90 percent.

WASHINGTON -- Adolphus Busch IV, heir to the Busch family brewing fortune, resigned his lifetime membership in the National Rifle Association on Thursday, writing in a letter to NRA President David Keene, "I fail to see how the NRA can disregard the overwhelming will of its members who see background checks as reasonable."

The resignation, first reported by KSDK, came a day after the Senate rejected a series of amendments to a gun control bill, including a bipartisan deal to expand background checks for gun sales. The NRA had vigorously opposed all those measures.

"The NRA I see today has undermined the values upon which it was established," wrote Busch. "Your current strategic focus clearly places priority on the needs of gun and ammunition manufacturers while disregarding the opinions of your 4 million individual members."

Reached for comment on Busch's resignation, NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told The Huffington Post, "We disagree with his characterization, but we wish him all the best."

Busch joined the pro-gun organization in 1975 and has spoken before of his love of hunting. But the NRA has moved in a direction that Busch would not follow. "One only has to look at the makeup of the 75-member board of directors, dominated by manufacturing interests, to confirm my point. The NRA appears to have evolved into the lobby for gun and ammunition manufacturers rather than gun owners," he wrote.

Busch told Keene, "It disturbs me greatly to see this rigid new direction of the NRA." He singled out the gun lobby's reversal of its 1999 position in favor of universal background checks, as well as its opposition to an assault weapons ban and a ban on high-capacity magazines. "I am simply unable to comprehend how assault weapons and large capacity magazines have a role in your vision," he wrote.

The NYT is rated as one of the 5 top and best newspapers in the world. Looney-tooney? Because it sometimes slants slightly centre-left,(and that makes eminent sense because it's an intelligent publication), does not mean it does not factually report the news.

Crazy people, as you irreventerally call them, have not shot at anyone far as I know.

Criminals will always have guns to kill each other. Let 'em. Tell me, Rogue, how many "criminals" , real criminals, have killed innocent people in your country in 2012? Check it out. It's the ordinary joe who has easy access to weapons who kills innocent people, not very often the criminals. Check out domestic violence, workplace incidents, theatre,- no criminal background these people. But they easily bought guns, and used them, whereas had they not had them, there probably would not have been so many deaths.

Well, when you ask people if they are willing to pay $100 for every time they need to get a background check to buy a gun, they change their minds!
It is sort of like ObamaCare, when they find out the facts, they have second and third thoughts.
But I guess they will have to pass the law to find out what's in it!!!

Ah, Jared Lee Loughner is not crazy? How about James Eagan Holmes? Or Adam Lanza?
Most domestic murders have criminal histories? Why do you think they passed a extending MISDEMEANOR family violence conviction to be denied the right to bear arms?
And using your analogy, there is no reason to extend background checks, is there?
