: The gun debate in the U.S. may never end, but opinion polls show most Americans want stricter gun laws. In a recent move, an alliance of organizations representing police chiefs and executives said they would strongly support universal background checks for firearms purchases. Currently, only licensed dealers have to insist on background checks, but firearms sold through private parties or gun shows do not require any checks and constitute 40 percent of total gun sales.
