48. Yes.

I'm guessing even most gun owners have only bought a gun at a sporting goods store and are actually ignorant of the issue. That also means that they are ignorant of the ramifications of any legislation intended to solve the issue. The more people know, the less support there will be for universal background checks. Of course, that's assuming people care enough to even consider the thing.

Every time something bad happens with a gun people have two choices: work to make the guns go away or go and get a gun to defend themselves from the same thing happening to them. Most people, being human, will opt for self preservation if somebody can't guarantee they will do it for them.
