Hell no they don't.I wonder how this fits in to the "right to bear arms SHALL not be infringed?
Or do our legislators even care about that anymore?
68 yeas. Dems are just over half. Lots of repubs went with this.But it still has to pass the House, right? I don't think it's any surprise that it got past the heavily left-leaning Senate.

Yea.. but the devil is in the details. What sane person would not say yes to a question like "don't you want to save the children?".. its all in how the survey is written. There are plenty of OTHER surveys that show a more split opinion when the wording is more neutral and more fair. I think everyone wishes that the states had gotten off their asses and submitted more names to NICS rather than keep them in state. And that there were more teeth to the already existing law requiring that. But not many responding to the poll are explained that before they are asked if they support UBC's. They assume there are large loopholes by lack of laws. They don't realize that there are loopholes existing simply because of lack of enforcement,teeth of existing laws. And if you lie and say people can buy guns off the internet and or at all guns shows without background checks without explaining the nuances of that then your going to extract a totally different response to a oversimplified question about a complex subject.When you get numbers like 90,it's pretty darn accurate.

While I would prefer this to have simply died without even coming up for a vote, in many ways it is better and makes for a bigger defeat for it to be voted down than blocked by procedure. Unfortunately, I think something will pass the Senate, along party lines if nothing else. I may be wrong about that as I suspect many of the up for reelection senators, especially D's in predominantly R states will choose carefully.What some of our Republican Senators (McCain and my Senator Lindsey Graham for example) are gambling on is that they will neuter any things in the Bill during debate and amendment that might harm us and yet come off looking good by doing something at the same time. What they are doing is "symbolism" and somewhat dangerous by letting a fuse stay lit.
