As of 7:30PM Sunday night, poll is 56.9% against background checks, 37.9 for, and 5.2 Unsure, would depend on specifics. Currently very small sample size.
I wonder how many of the 37.9 don't realize there is already a background check?
Although I'm one to wear out the Tracking Notice and wait anxiously for the delivery vehicle, I don't think I'd oppose a 3-day waiting period IF a true background check was made, would you? Granted, criminals by definition are still criminals, but there are a lot of loonies loose on our streets and in our 'hoods. Just watch CNN and MSNBC for examples thereof.

After all folks, this is 2019AD and it ain't 'your father's Oldsmobile'.
Good point about the Oldsmobile, considering the number of Americans killed and injured by car violence.

I'll support a background check and a waiting period for 2A rights as long as the same background check and waiting period applies to buying a car, or a smart phone or computer for that matter. Internet hate speech, donchaknow.

The same background check should be conducted before somebody can vote, run for office, receive government benefits (including tax credits or ACA subsidy) or get married and have children. Nobody would object to those "reasonable restrictions" would they?
