Gun Shows sell more than the notion that guns are sexy: the sell a lack of basic background checks, making domestic terrorism easy.
Moderate, commonsense, reasonable gun control is moderate, commonsense, and reasonable. The NRA buys our “representatives”, however, and our great nation remains the most violent and lethal and least safe and most suspicious in the world. ~ ed.
“Before the slaughter in Aurora, Colo.—and long before Sandy Hook—a survey of gun owners found that nearly 9 out of 10 of us support criminal-background checks of anyone who seeks to buy a gun. (Currently only in-store purchasers are checked; there’s a loophole for gun shows.) Eight in 10 gun owners support background checks for employees of gun sellers, 7 in 10 support banning gun sales to anyone under 21, and more than 6 in 10 would prohibit violent offenders from obtaining a concealed-handgun permit.”
Despite what you might hear, most gun owners actually support tougher controls.
