    Gun Owners, NRA Members Back Some Restrictions

    A new survey shows 82 percent of gun owners—including 74 percent of National Rifle Association members—support requiring a criminal background check on anyone trying to purchase a gun. Similarly, 80 percent of gun owners and 79 percent of NRA members said they are in favor of requiring gun retailers to perform background checks on all employees to ensure they are not felons.

    Frank Luntz, the Republican pollster and wordsmith, conducted the poll in May on behalf of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a coalition led by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent, and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, a Democrat. Luntz presented the poll—of 945 gun owners across the country, half of whom are members of the National Rifle Association—to the U.S. Conference of Mayors at their June meeting in Orlando. The results of the poll are being released on Tuesday at a Center for American Progress event.

      On each and every gun. Make gun owners pay for the damages caused by guns.
