Oh, look – the Trib has another badly worded poll intended to elicit results to be used as blunt-force DFL rhetoric. In this case, on Minnesotans’ views on gun registration – AKA “Universal Background Checks”
And yes, it’s dishonest. I add emphasis:
A strong majority of Minnesota voters support universal background checks on all gun sales and a ban on semiautomatic military-style rifles like the AR-15, a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll has found.
It’s not “gun sales”. It’s all transfers; lending or borrowing, inheritance, any transfer at all.
And – again – there is no way for “background checks” to be “universal” without trackjng the various transfers through a firearm’s lifetime.
Each of those transactions over time is a data point.
In the world of IT, we have a term for tracking data points; a database.
You can not call this anything but gun registration – and given the DFL’s tack on guns, you can not look at it as anything other than a prelude to confiscation.
Not. One. More. Compromise.
