According to the data, 71 percent of Georgia voters, 67 percent of Tennessee voters and 60 percent of Arkansas voters supported expanded background checks. Women were more in favor of the checks than men, to the tune of 81 percent in Georgia.

“Our polling on background checks since last month’s Senate vote has been incredibly consistent,” said PPP President Dean Debnam. PPP surveyed 576 Georgia voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percent.

    Anywhere in Georgia you go to buy a gun you are subject to a background check. The only exception is from Private sales or friends and Family. No criminal is going to seek a gun and subject themselves to a background check. The only thing expanded background check will do is give the government more money so that when you buy a gun from your neighbor or family member it will cost you an extra fee, or tax to the government. I am all for keeping guns out of criminals hands, but this is nothing more than a money making scheme, it has nothing to do with safety.
