Eight polls.
Wipe your chin, Dr.Deflection.
PS: the FBI doesn't carry "statistics" on public opinion re: universal background checks. Those indicate that 90 percent of Americans support universal background checks.
PROVE that which you so erroneously contend.

“Prohibited persons” has expanded from just “felons” to:

Federal Categories of Persons Prohibited From Receiving

...The federally prohibiting criteria are as follows:

An unlawful user and/or an addict of any controlled substance; for example, a person convicted for the use or possession of a controlled substance within the past year; or a person with multiple arrests for the use or possession of a controlled substance within the past five years with the most recent arrest occurring within the past year; or a person found through a drug test to use a controlled substance unlawfully, provided the test was administered within the past year.

A person adjudicated mental defective or involuntarily committed to a mental institution or incompetent to handle own affairs, including dispositions to criminal charges of found not guilty by reason of insanity or found incompetent to stand trial.

"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, and this without any qualification as to their condition or degree...."

"....This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty....The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Whenever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction."

- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries,(1803).(Mr. Tucker was a Lawyer and Professor of law at the College of William and Mary. Served with James Madison and Edmund Randolph as Virginia commissioners to the Annapolis Convention. United States district judge for Virginia. As District Court judge, Tucker sat with Chief Justice John Marshall on the U.S. Circuit Court in Richmond.).

It certainly appears that "liberty" has been "annihilated", DOESN'T IT?

Weather Underground

The Weather Underground Organization (WUO), commonly known as the Weather Underground, was an American radical left organization founded on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan. Originally called Weatherman, the group became known colloquially as the Weathermen. Weatherman first organized in 1969 as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) composed for the most part of the national office leadership of SDS and their supporters. Their goal was to create a clandestine revolutionary party for the overthrow of the US government

You seem to be forgetting the age old MAXIM:

"What comes around, goes around".

Only what was left out of that equation. Is that it generally comes back around with accrued INTEREST - compounded DAILY.

That which you scream and cry for will eventually work back to you. Enjoy your misery.
