    You have zero evidence or logic to back your claim. Your claim is dangerous.

    I'm interested in saving lives and having universal background checks as a part of a way to do that which is shown to be significantly effective. Your tone has changed so I'm out

    Gun show loopholes, online dealers, various non-federal mandated vendors who were supposed to be required to also demand a background check. The only exception is hunting...

    Wrong. No law can prevent all crime or diligent lawbreakers but the enforcement of closing such loopholes would save many lives.

    With that, I hope my peers in this thread who disagree with me can provide data and logical argumentation to move forward in this debate.

    Simple, there is no need to currently provide firearms with so many US citizens already owning firearms and ammunition.

    You claim that legal firearm owners do not contribute to illegal misuse, so you should show me how this is false.

    If you truly believe that then I just feel sorry for you and cannot even be mad. 6th grade social studies and intro to demography disproves that claim.

    Even if true this is a very very small number and they are not contributing to crimes anywhere near that of US citizens. Ridiculous claim, as I said.
