Where does this 90% favor background checks number come from? Did they just pull it out of thin air?
Yeah. They do that a lot.
I think they just poll each other. People don't like them, so they don't get out much.
I think they had a public opinion poll that someone did on whether or not people support background checks for gun purchases. Then, they create the idea through the media that there are no background checks for gun purchases right now. Since most people have never bought a gun, they don’t have any idea about NICS etc.
Even my dad, who loves shooting my guns when we go to the range, was suckered in by this until I explained to him that the only sales where there aren’t background checks are sales between private individuals. Those sales are not how the majority of these left-wing lunatics like Loughner get the guns they acquired to go on their shooting sprees.
Yes Dai Huy the more or less just made it up
