Default 92% support universal background checks?

A new poll suggests that 92% of gun owners support universal background checks. I do not. Just who were the gun owners polled? This seems fishy to me as it is very difficult to get 92% of the people to agree on anything.

More lies by the anti gun people. They believe if you keep telling the same lie over and over people will start to believe it. They probably had to scrape to find 100 Democrats that would admit to owning a gun.

The poll was done with 100 of their friends. But, 8 didn't understand the question.

Hey, I am a Democrat and I bet I own more guns than 9 out of 10 on posters on this forum. Nearly all of my Democrat friends own at least one. Get your head out of the sand.

Why is it that everyone who disagrees with you has to be a liar. Can no honest man disagree with you? Do you think that you have a monopoly on the truth?

It's a proven fact that 87% of statistics are made up.

No proof they were gun owners.

Of course not, but Obama and the Democrats do have a Monopoly on lies, deceit, manipulation of the truth and violations to the Constitution.

Liberals and Supporters of the Second, an Oxymoron if there ever was one.

That is the problem with polls.

Do a poll in an area where the sentiment is one way, forget that there are areas that go opposite of the poll, and claim 100% in favor.

Go to a ski resort in the middle of winter with a poll to ban snow, and you get 100% against.

Funny you should mention that, as a skier, I can tell you about 30% of those at that resort wish the snow would go away even if it makes no sense! The owners and their professional staff wish for the end of the snow once the paying tickets dwindle and only a few dedicated pass holders are coming. Dont forget about those moping in the ski chalet that really dont enjoy skiing like their parents would like them too (who forced them to come for the free lessons, both of my sisters about 50 years ago). Lots of the worker bees actually are kids that dont want to work but are forced to by their parents. I say this cause thats exactly how polls like this get traction even when they are wrong. They ask the skiers out on the slope obviously enjoying themselves and 100% of them want more snow. You could easily get the same reaction if you polled members of specific hunting clubs even if they dont really speak for anywhere near 100% of those who exercise their 2A rights.


100% of Gun-owners were not surveyed obviously, my guess is <1% were and they were from very targeted audiences. That poll is as screwed as my deck! I dont think Ive ever been in the 8% bracket on any poll in my life, Im pretty sure thats not the case here as well.

I absolutely dont believe Mandatory BCG's are Constitutional even if they did work and its proven that they dont. As a citizen of this Nation, I dont need to prove to anyone Im not a risk to myself or others to exercise my BOR's. Thats just not in the Constitution and only a fool would read that into it FOOG. Whats even more Phucked up is the list of those banned from their Rights is not a public document that all can see and refute if its BS.

Using the same logic with other statistically significant things used to kill and maim, how is it we feel any better about loonies getting permission to drive a car, buy a set of steak knives or pilot a boat than own a gun? Really, cars kill/ injure more people in this country in one day than guns do in 365! We are suckers for sure, they are playing on our heart strings like the pros they are and were memorized by their incite-fullness like deer in the headlights!

Is there really any subject that 92% of any actual survey group in America would agree on? I cant imagine that...
