Recent Quinnipac polling of gun owners in Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania show that gun owners in those states favor universal background checks for those seeking to purchase handguns. Virginia- 92% New Jersey-95% Pennsylvania-95%

Don't forget to mention in your major news report that this would not have prevented the Newton, Conn. massacre.
And, it would be revealing to ask this question," If AR-15's are eliminated, are there any pedestrian models of hunting rifles that could be used to produce the same killing efficiency as the AR-15?

The point is, NRA leadership is against universal background checks because they point out the fact that criminals don't subject themselves to those checks, but the rank and file members of the NRA are in favor of universal background checks and polling continues to show this, so Wayne LaPierre is in the minority in his opposition on UBC's.

You've probably heard the old joke about how the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms should be a convenience store not a federal agency, but the latest ATF screw up in Wisconsin proves they aren't even capable of doing that properly. From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

A store calling itself Fearless Distributing opened early last year on an out-of-the-way street in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood, offering designer clothes, athletic shoes, jewelry and drug paraphernalia.

Those working behind the counter, however, weren't interested in selling anything.

They were undercover agents from the U.S....
