    A poll conducted by McKeon and Associates and released on December 23 by the National Shooting Sports Foundation shows that "53percent" of Americans oppose expanding background checks at gun shows. The report further states: "The percentage of Americans who support expanding background checks sits at 40".

    This information will be useful should you advocate against SB 1551--please do so! Thanks a bunch.

    Moot point here in Oregon as all sales at a gun show or Originating at a gun show or on gun show property (the parking lot at the expo etc.) must go through a background check.

    Additionally there are already laws against providing any felon or non elegible person with a firearm, so the law they are trying to pass is redundant and only serves to set up a closet registration with the future intent of attempted confiscation. That simply cannot be allowed to happen.
    Fight and fight hard now to avoid a bloody fight in the end.
    I can't say it much clearer than that.

    Huh? Your huffingtonpost link don't work. It goes to the website, but for some reason the direct link (from this website) don't work.

    Here's a tinyurl that seems to fix that link to the article and the huffington poll. ;)
