    What about the gang bangers buying guns out of a van? Who is going to stop those transactions?

    There is "no" way for them to know what the number is, so it's all hypoberle, and BS.

    I stopped paying attention to "statistics" a while ago. They're either outdated, or skewed to reflect the viewpoints of those who funded them.

    That is exactly my point in posting the link. That 40% figure is one of the talking points I hear in almost every anti's argument for universal background checks. I didn't believe it then and can see it was all slanted and unsupported.

    they make the number fit, so they can show their point. in other words,,,lies. it has gotten to the point where you don't look at the numbers when it comes to the left.

    That's not quite accurate.

    The real made up number is 84.5% and it is based on an extrapolation of thin and very hot air.

    As this column departs the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas, returning back to the Northwest, where Saturday will see a gun rights rally in Olympia and a big gun show in Puyallup, there are some lessons to be learned from the past week an a new revelation that pokes a gaping hole in one long-standing contention by gun prohibitionists.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    That's the ticket....as 97% of all stated statistics are incorrect 37% of the time.

    A large corporation needed to hire a CFO; they interviewed (3) people.

    Mathematician, Physicist and a accountant.

    The interviewer only had ONE question for each candidate.

    "What does 2 + 2 = ?

    Mathematician: "(4)..always 4. It is irrefutable."

    Physicist: "(4), always 4 in this universe or any other universe. It can not be altered"

    Accountant: The accountant pulled the blinds shut and whispered "What do you want it to equal?"

    67% of all statistics are inaccurate. The other 59% are made up.
