2.) The majority of respondents — 71 percent — say a federal ban on the manufacture and sale of some semi-automatics would have no effect on reducing violent crime. However, more than 20 percent say any ban would actually have a negative effect on reducing violent crime. Just over 7 percent took the opposite stance, saying they believe a ban would have a moderate to significant effect. ...

@H2O MAN,
Basic reality is that the big killers in America are still tobacco, alcohol, driving accidents, medical malpractice, swimming pools....

Guns are way, way down on that list and rifles of any sort are a minuscule fraction of gun deaths so that your odds of being killed with a rifle bullet are about like your odds of being killed by lightning. Swimming pools and bath tubs kill a lot more children than rifles do.

I'm sure that everyone who reads just a bit of news, knows about "Police Store, PoliceOne.com" ... ....

To quote from another source (POLICE Magazine):
Quote:
"Background checks work," said Craig Steckler, IACP's president. "Keeping firearms out of the hands of prohibited purchasers is a key factor in reducing gun violence in our communities and protecting our officers. For far too long, those who were denied the ability to buy a firearm from a commercial dealer were able to secure a weapon at either a gun show, over the internet, or some other form of 'private sale.' Under the provision of Manchin-Toomey, we have the opportunity to finally close many of these loopholes and, as a result, reduce the level of violence faced by our officers and our citizens on a daily basis."

@Walter Hinteler,
Background checks are in place, have been in place for years and they do work even at gun shows.

Why is there a rush to fix something that's not broken?

Gun registration followed by gun confiscation is the goal of anti-freedom nuts.

Police chiefs seem to disagree with your opinion. From above source:
Quote:
The legislation would "increase both the coverage and effectiveness of the current background check system and help deny criminals and other prohibited purchasers easy access to firearms," according to an IACP statement.
[...]
"Straw purchasing and firearms trafficking put guns into the hand of those that are prohibited from possessing them," Steckler added. "The ability to effectively target straw purchasers is critical to protecting our communities."

@Walter Hinteler,


Police chiefs in most big blue states say what their handlers tell them to say even if it goes against the US constitution.

Police chiefs in most red states do their job and protect their citizens US constitutional rights.

The fact that background checks are in place, have been in place for years and they do work even at gun shows is unchanged.

@Walter Hinteler,
They keep mentioning the internet, but they haven't shown any proof that illegal purchases have taken place over the internet. Besides it is already illegal to buy a gun over the internet that isn't shipped to a licensed gun dealer.

You are correct.
The purchase is not shipped directly to the purchasers address, it must go through a licensed FFL dealer and that is were the background check occurs.
If the buyer does not pass the background check, the buyer does not get the firearm - period.

I guess they wish to repeat these 'loophole' lies so often that the dumb masses end up accepting it as the truth without question.

@H2O MAN,
"40% of guns sold are done so without a background check". That was true 20 years ago.
