Jim Moran pushing gun-control measures favored by NRA members
Moran’s legislation is based on the results of a July survey conducted by GOP pollster Frank Luntz, who asked NRA members and other gun-owners about different gun-reform proposals.
Luntz found that:
• 74 percent of NRA members support criminal background checks on all potential gun buyers — as opposed to current law, which requires background checks only on those who buy from licensed gun dealers;
• 79 percent of NRA members back requiring gun retailers to perform background checks on all employees;
• 71 percent of NRA members would bar those on the FBI’s terrorist watch-list from buying and owning guns;
• 64 percent of NRA members support requiring gun owners to report lost or stolen firearms.
