    40% of gun sales done with no background check

    thanks nra for your good work in making it easy for criminals, lunatics, terrorists , idiots, drunks and children to buy guns.... anything for a buck huh? and never mind that 90% of the public and even 74% of NRA members what universal background checks:

    Republican pollster Frank Lutz documents that gun owners support common sense gun legislation and believe that personal freedom and public safety can co-exist.

    Luntz found that 87% of non-NRA gun owners, and 74% of NRA gun owners support requiring a criminal background check of anyone purchasing a gun. 80% of non-NRA gun owners and 71% of NRA gun owners support prohibiting people on the terrorist watch list from purchasing guns.

    Gun owners have misperceptions of current gun laws, with over half (53%) of non-NRA members and 57% of NRA members believing that the statement, “Everyone who wants to buy a gun has to pass a background check to complete the purchase” is true. This statement is false. Approximately 40 percent of gun sales are not subject to a Brady background check.

    Luntz polled 945 gun owners nationwide (margin of error +3%) in May 2012. The sample was divided evenly by gun owners who were current or lapsed members of the NRA, and non-NRA gun owners.
