What's sickening is the lies and distortions you gun-nuts keep spewing.
@turdburglar just makes up baseless hypotheticals. @pacojohnson thinks you can`t possibly buy a gun on the internet without going through a local dealer. Hah! @MeGrendel thinks the only non-dealers at gun shows are "individuals". They`re not paying $50-300 per table just to sell dad`s old shotgun. There is a huge sub-culture of non-licensed "dealers" who hit every show. I know 2 guys that make a butt-load that way. PLUS he thinks "it`s not something you can regulate." Six states already require UNIVERSAL background checks on ALL firearm sales at gun shows. Three more require checks on all handgun sales at gun shows. And it works! So stop saying it can`t.
Americans will ALWAYS have the right to bear arms. Period. But what`s wrong with trying a little harder to keep guns out of the wrong hands?

Draculya:-"When the legislature differs from the polls"
1) That statement is a fallacy as we do not govern based on polls.
2) That statement is even more of a fallacy because if we did govern on polls it would only work if the POLL resembled the LEGISLATION in any way, and were accurate in any way. This poll accomplished neighter.
Draculya:-"it's a sign that democracy is dead"
For your education: `The United States of America (USA or U.S.A.), commonly called the United States (US or U.S.), or America, is a federal republic consisting of fifty states and a federal district as well as several territories with differing degrees of autonomy`

first, US is not a democracy, we have a representative government. Our representative government, theoretically being more stable/long-sighted than yesterdays latest poll...is a better way to govern. Our reps think that a more restrictive background check, on close examination, would reduce our freedoms and greatly increase the federal government's power, and voted overwhelmingly against it. Deal with it.
Secondly, I am sure if you polled Berkley CA, you would get 99% in favor of confiscating guns! There is NO WAY 90% of actual americans, fairly sampled, would agree on anything. These are spurious poll results
