there IS support for background checks. STRONG SUPPORT. It's the NRA lobbyists that are in the way.

If we were only talking about running a background check and then destroying the information about the gun purchased and who purchased it, I wouldn't be so inclined to be against "universal background checks". But what the gun control and anti gun people want is a national gun registry. Without a national gun registry, universal background checks accomplish nothing. There are 100's of millions of guns out there which are not "registered". We have a law (Firearm Owners Protection Act) which prohibits a firearm registry. Canada tried a national firearms registry and the costs were exorbitant and the benefits non existent. They ended up scrapping it. They have far fewer guns and gun owners than we do. Are people in favor of federal gun owner and firearms data base? If you support universal background checks, you are also supporting a gun registry. Without the registry, universal background checks won't do diddly squat about keeping guns from criminals and the mentally ill.
