Simple question, did you support the expanded background check?

People claim close to 80% of the general population supported the bill. So I would like to know what this community thought about it.

IMO, anyone who wants a gun will get one. I would rather not give the government another inch. We should fear tyrannical government more than the common criminal.

The fact that many states limit access and carry of firearms shows that the federal government is not doing its job defending the Constitution.

As the person who started the poll I am re-framing from voting.

When politicians make simple sounding statements like , expanded background check, it sounds harmless to most sheeple. But in reality there is always much more to any Bill or legislation. Its those unknown underlying factors people are fed up with. For the children ,yeah we all belive that one...

NO!!! Anyone that supports gun control in any fashion doesn't deserve to benefit from the 2nd Amendment and may as well turn their firearms into Big Brother and go live in one of the anti-gun countries overseas!!! I find it interesting that Obie and his minions keep attempting to penalize "LEGAL" gunowners when we haven't broken any laws, yet he breaks or circumvents them whenever he chooses with impunity!!!

Legal gunowners are now supposed to become the convenient scapegoats because we won't pony up our gun rights to the "Grand Poobah" because some idiots steal guns and kill several innocent people??? Now he decides we automatically become the bad guys because of it!!! I say that's BS!!! He and his cronies just released over 2200 illegal aliens from jail because he didn't get the budget he thought he deserved!!! So the hell with all the American citizens he may have put at risk or the many laws they will break after being turned loose back on to our streets.

He interferes with individual States govts, he bypasses Congress whenever he wants, and he's destroying our economy more each day. He's shoving his personal Health Care scheme down our throats whether we want it or not and then threatens to prosecute anyone that doesn't comply!!! He's nothing but a damn socialist criminal masquerading as the President until he drains the proverbial "piggy bank" that is our economy!!! Everyone had better get a clue and vote "conservative" next year to maintain the House and reclaim the Senate because if he gets both we are all SCREWED!!!
:cool:

What really needs to be asked here is "do you want people to own guns". Because that is how the question should be asked. These people don't believe in private ownership of firearms. All these little battles are just steps in their goal of civilian disarmament. The elimination of private ownership. Period. They are just using a psychological technique to get their way with the least amount of resistance. Baby steps, but steps leading to their goal. So the real question we should ask them, are you for banning private ownership? Cut to the chase. Get it out into the open. Either they are for a Republic or not? We are NOT a democracy. They cannot have it their way unless they try to change the US Constitution. They are trying very hard to force change without regard to the document. That is evil and anyone trying to destroy or violate the US Constitution should be tried and punished severely.

No. There is no evidence to suggest any major problem exists due to the way the current system is. While I did have to "endure" background checks to purchase my guns, I don't believe we need any more "Gun Control"

Guns are here to stay regardless.

All this Gun Control nonsense is just woosies trying to make sure we are all victims because criminals will always have guns.
