Dear State Legislator:

Happy New Year.

On December 23, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) released polling results of more than 1,200 Americans conducted by McKeon & Associates regarding “universal background checks.”

Here are some of the results from this national poll:

  • 53 percent said they oppose additional federal laws like “universal background checks” for gun show sales.
  • A two-to-one margin said it is more important to ensure background checks are run against a complete and accurate database than require background checks for gun transfers between family members.
  • 54 percent said that requiring background checks for transferring guns between friends and family members was not effective at all or not very effective in reducing violent crime.
  • 92 percent agree that the states should submit all records of persons federally prohibited from owning a firearm to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

 
Please take a moment to read the NSSF posting,Americans Don’t Think ‘Universal Background Checks’ Extension for Gun Shows Are Needed, National Poll Finds.

If you have any questions regarding any firearm or hunting-related issues, please contact your NRA State Liaison atState&Local@nrahq.org or call 703-267-1240.

Sincerely,

Chuck Cunningham
