Facts mean nothing. The opposition is arguing based on emotion and will win because there is one indisputable fact:
Anyone can buy a gun FTF without a check at a gunshow in most of the nation.
We all know that the actual occurrence of crimes with weapons from gun shows is next to nothing but that does not matter. Argue those facts all you want, public opinion is based on emotion. The emotion is against this practice and the party most supportive of restrictions controls the Legislative and Executive branches.
The FACT is the legislation is going to come and we can not stop it but we can craft it if we act first.
