Who Cares What the Majority Wants on Guns?

David is right, who cares what 90% of Americans and even 80% of NRA members want. What is important are the opinions of the gun makers of the NRA, the real financial backing of the NRA and probably other anti-gun control groups. It is what their opinion matters. It is the opinion of Colt or Smith and Wesson. Their opinion is what counts. So some violent felons can walk up to a non-federally licensed dealer at a gun show in some states and buy a gun without a background check? Who cares, Colt and other gun makers have spoken and the Senators in the GOP know who they work for. It is not their own voters, but the gun makers.

Obeyme is the king of poll twisting. Any poll can be worded to skew the answer in your favor. I ask, "How many gun shows have you attended, and how many gun purchases did you make?" Based on your comment about a felon walking in to buy at a show, I would say zero on both counts. Felons coming in, where they can be easily identified because the shows are crawling with uniformed and undercover LE....please. Additionally, the majority of booths are licensed dealers, background checks. The next group are those that sell accessories, clothing, knives, pepperspray, etc. Then you have the fundraisers for Wounded Warrior, Military Dogs, NRA and other safety programs. The private sellers are a very small %, usually selling collector items.

There was no "overwhelming majority." Your 90% and 80% statistics are false, which makes them perfect for Obama.

Go back to being a whiny little sheep and leave us sheepdogs alone.

this is the kind of phoney-baloney rhetoric, demogoguery, and lies that caused you to lose this debate in the senate.

Who gives a cr@p about your rantings? You're wrong about the numbers but too stupid to find out what they really are. Just continue kissing obozo's rectum and repeating the democrat talking points.

President Barack Obama has been struggling to wrap his head around the "unimaginable" idea that Congress may "defy" the American people and stop a vote on a gun control package compromise. The notion, he says, resists the "overwhelming instinct of the American people" after the massacre in Newtown, Conn., to pass gun control legislation.

Well, the unthinkable happened. The Senate's sweeping gun legislation came up short on the votes required to move forward. And despite all the idealistic calls for passage and despite the fact that many pundits and advocates seem to believe that something should be law simply because "the vast...
