You may have noticed Wade, that no one has yet sited a source for that dubious 90% figure. Why am I not surprised?
That would be because no source actually exists, but in the mind of the St Paul Bob of Many names!

Gotta LOVE the "482 year old" questioning numbers, as a way to ignore the reality, the majority of Americans favor background checks...

SURE, 90% matters, but the majority doesn't, since the right hates reality.

That overlap effect, not surprisingly, was most pronounced among Republicans, 45% of whom said that the Senate should not have voted to expand background checks, but then said they would vote to require background checks on all gun purchases at a rate of 73%! Independents were second-stupidest, at 64% to 80%, and Democrats were least stupid, responding “yes” to the first question at 85%, and 96% for the second.

As maddening as this poll is, it does demonstrate one thing with absolute clarity: people really want background checks, even when they don’t want them.

Is this data just in your head or are you going to share the source?

Yes the poll was done by the Post. Wow what a find. I'm referring to your numbers breakdown that isn't part of it. You understand why we don't trust you of course.

Its because you are retarded.

Sure I am, while you're proving you are...

Just remember these simple rules:
If you can replace the word with “it is” or “it has”, you always use the
apostrophe!
The word
its
is used when something belongs to or is associated with
something.
example 1:
The dog ate
its
bone.(The bone belongs to the dog)
The word
it’s
is the contraction for the words
it is
or
it has
.
example 2:
It’s
(It is) a beautiful day today

Do anything to keep from answering the question. You fail.

Correcting grammar on forums is a dbag move. Especially from a dbag that constantly uses broken sentences, all caps, etc.

Gun control was outspent. By 13 to 1, turns out.

Gun rights groups pumped $3.8 million in federal lobbying this year — a 122% spike in spending over the final months of 2012 — as they fought to roll back gun-control measures advocated by President Obama and Democrats in Congress in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., tragedy, a new analysis shows.

Gun-control groups also increased their lobbying activity dramatically, but their spending, totaling nearly $276,000 in the first quarter of 2013, represents a tiny fraction of what gun rights groups are investing in the legislative fight, according to the tally by the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks political money.

Get it? You want to know why gun control legislation failed?

The gun lobby spent more money lobbying the fuckers who voted on it.

"Gun rights" groups spent more money in three months than the gun control movement has in the last 5 years.

There's no grass-roots "gunz are teh awesome" movement. It's pure theater, the amplification of loonies online and a handful carrying weapons on streetcorners and yelling in town hall meetings.

It comes down to MONEY. And they spent more. They spent enough to counter the will of the overwhelming majority of the country.

You think this matters?

Hey Dumbo,

There is a reason we have a Constitution in this country. Take a class in American History. Then you might have a clue.

Mob rule is what you have in a democracy. The Rule of Law is what you have in a Constitutional Republic like the United States.

1. You are not smarter. Otherwise, you could come up with your own name.

2. Rule of Law.

3. The Constitution.

If you feel the 2nd Amendment is not longer valid, pass a Constitutional Amendment and have at it.

1. I see you're a hypocrite, when it happens to others
2. WE MAKE THE LAW...
3. Where does the Constitution say no background checke(even your "version")?

If you feel you're a man, try to behave like one...
