'80% Coalition' pushes for gun reform laws in Wisconsin

NOW: ’80% Coalition’ pushes for gun reform laws in Wisconsin

NEXT:

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- There's a new push for gun reform laws in Wisconsin.

A group of business, education, faith-based, professional and service organizations announced the creation of the "80% Coalition" during a gathering at the Milwaukee County Courthouse.

They demand lawmakers pass a resolution condemning recent acts of domestic terrorism and pass common sense firearm reform legislation.

"There are countless online marketplaces where these felons, these domestic abusers, simply with the click of a button purchase firearms online," said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin. "That must end, and that must end now."

The group is called the 80% Coalition because a recent Marquette Law School poll found that 80% of registered Wisconsin voters are in favor of stronger gun laws.

They polled 800 people in the Marquette Poll. 644 said that want stricter gun control. Now call me crazy but 640 is not 80% of the Wisconsin population. 2010 Wisconsin census is 5,686,986. So 80% is 4,549,588.8 and the 640 people are 0.011% of the Wisconsin population. Scare people with skewed nformation like we're idiots. Us Wisconsin guns owners should make sure this government overreach is stopped in its tracks!

Funny, I'm a registered voter and I was never polled. So I call B.S. on this poll and their numbers!

The 80% Coalition is 100% wrong. What they claim does not and cannot happen.
"There are countless online marketplaces where these felons, these domestic abusers, simply with the click of a button purchase firearms online."
It just doesn't work that way, it never has and anyone who says it does is either ill informed or just plain lying.

you can't buy a gun online and have it shipped to your door, thats not how that works at all. if you purchase a firearm online, it is then shipped to a FFL (Federal Firearms License) holder, which is a gun store, where they then have you fill out a form with all sorts of questions,in turn which is ran through background checks through NICS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System). If you are pass that check, then you are legally allowed to purchase the firearm.

Not this BS they are trying to claim happens.
