Polls mean nothing because how you frame the question is everything. If you said (and this is true of Reid's and Feinstein's plan) that mental health checks are part of it and veterans coming back with a diagnosis of PTSD would be ineligible most people would be like "Hell no!"

I support the expansion of the current NICS system to cover all transfers including leaving a weapon to a person in your will. Hey find another person to leave the weapon to.

I don't believe that BS for a minute.

Background checks wouldn't have stopped this Tsarnaev bunch. If Homeland Security, D0J, FBI, Obama Admin had done their homework it wouldn't have happened. Americans SHOULD NOT have to put up with this CRAP.

And WHO allowed these frackin' mama and daddy Jihad to leave this country?? Don't give me this George Bush 'ship' on saudis. THIS is the AZZhOLE we have to deal with now...and as wishy washy as GWB was, this guy is 100 times worse cause he actually HATES this country as much as the f'ing Tsarnaevs.

So what is the issue with making all arms transfers meet the current gun store standards?

If they didn't help them with Boston--but that's an uncharitable opinion of mine based off of who benefited from Boston. Wasn't Chechnya, wasn't Islam...it was the US government.

Yes, I'm mean today.
