would support BO's executive order that doctors now will be required to report any of their patients who have 'violent' tendencies AND find out if they have guns in their house? Basically doctors will now be 'deputized' to report to the Feds.........so much for patient confidentiality when you consider that most of those patients will not be asked if they have knives or clubs or ball bats in their house or took karate classes or boxing training ........and most domestic killings are done with weapons (including their hands) other than guns.
I wonder how many patients will now hesitate or not consider seeing their doctor anymore?
From what I understand, the killer of those children tried a week or so before the mass shooting to purchase a gun and was turned down........didn't stop him from STEALING it from his own mother who PASSED that background check, did it?
I wonder if a doctor would be required to ask the mother now if she has any 'deranged' family members who might need to be reported after finding out if SHE has guns?
"a survey conducted in May 2012 by Republican pollster Frank Luntz found that most gun owners, including current and former members of the NRA, favor tighter gun regulations such as universal criminal background checks."
"A survey of National Rifle Association members and non-affiliated gun owners conducted by a prominent Republican pollster shows that there is broad support for certain provisions that would restrict the sale of guns."

"87 percent of NRA members agree that support for 2nd Amendment rights goes hand-in-hand with keeping guns out of the hands of criminals.
"There is very strong support for criminal background checks:
"74 percent support requiring criminal background checks of anyone purchasing a gun.
"79 percent support requiring gun retailers to perform background checks on all employees - a measure recently endorsed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry.
" NRA members strongly support allowing states to set basic eligibility requirements for people who want to carry concealed, loaded guns in public places. By contrast, the NRA leadership's top federal legislative priority - national reciprocity for concealed carry permits - would effectively eliminate these requirements by forcing every state to allow non-residents to carry concealed guns even if they would not qualify for a local permit.
"NRA members support many common state eligibility rules for concealed carrying:
"75 percent believe concealed carry permits should only be granted to applicants who have not committed any violent misdemeanors, including assault.
"74 percent believe permits should only be granted to applicants who have completed gun safety training.
"68 percent believe permits should only be granted to applicants who do not have prior arrests for domestic violence.
"63 percent believe permits should only be granted to applicants 21 years of age or older."

Just a little minor Googling. Who was it wanted figures to back up the contention that Ameircan's want better regulations on gun owner ship? The above is a poll of NRA members.
