10. you have no idea what you are saying. have you heard of a LOOPHOLE?
he is saying that the law he passed works, but would work much better if you had to get a background check to buy a gun.
if you can't grasp that, too bad.
maybe you should check your own pants for smoke?
the point here isn't whether its 40% or 25% or 18.7%, the point is it should be ZERO%

U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg speaks on the Senate floor on April 26.
U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg pushed through a law 15 years ago that prohibits people convicted of domestic violence from acquiring a gun. But the Democrat said there’s still avenues for those individuals to arm themselves.
Lautenberg spoke April 26 on the Senate floor in favor of reauthorizing legislation that supports efforts to help victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. During his speech, he said even more needs to be done in this area.
"Let me be clear. It would be tragic to turn our backs on victims and the people who dedicate their lives to supporting them. While we can’t stop all malicious acts, we can do more to keep women and their families safe," Lautenberg said. "In 1996, I wrote the domestic violence gun ban, forbids anyone convicted of domestic violence from getting a gun. Since the law's inception, we have kept guns from falling into violent hands on over 200,000 occasions. For instance, in our gun laws we’re allowing domestic abusers to sidestep this ban on getting a gun. The loophole allows a convicted abuser to walk into a gun show and walk out with a gun, no questions asked."
