Poll: More Americans Favor Protecting Gun Rights than Introducing New Gun Laws

| |

gun rights

The establishment agenda is more gun control. That’s what gets pushed in the mainstream media. That’s what the TV is selling you every time the news attempts to sensationalize gun violence as if it’s the number one way people are dying in this country (when it’s not even in the top ten, all things considered).

But all of this anti-2nd Amendment propaganda just isn’t quite enough to get people to buy it and start begging for more police state, more big government bureaucracy, and more gun legislation.

A new ABC News-WAPO poll found that while 46 of respondents said new gun laws should be a bigger priority, 47 percent said protecting the right to keep and bear arms is more important.

Sure, it may be just one percentage point, but these are left-leaning media organizations who can’t even manage to squeeze the sensationalism from their own polls enough to make up more pro-gun control headlines.

And then there’s this (via WAPO):

This marks a shift away from gun laws since April 2013, when Democrats’ push for increased background checks fell short in the aftermath of the massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.; back then, a 52 percent majority said new laws should be a priority.

The number of people who prioritize gun rights is growing:

Republicans and Americans in rural areas account for the shift toward giving gun rights higher priority. Since 2013, the number of rural Americans who prioritize gun rights over new laws has grown from 46 percent to 61 percent, and the share of Republicans has jumped from 58 percent to 71 percent.

And most people realize mental health issues (antidepressants, anyone?) are behind a lot of gun violence we’re seeing these days, not gun ownership or a person’s willingness to obey more gun laws.

Maybe it just all comes does to what people fear more: random mass gun violence or not being able to protect one’s self against violence, period.

Or maybe it’s fear of a government that turns against its own people, which is the real reason the founding fathers included the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights in the first place.

  • Since they are all eugenicists, their goal is the elimination of useless eaters, which is most of us, and especially those who resist them. JPFO did the research to prove that the disarming of the intended victims has preceded their genocide in every case in recorded history. If that is not enough of a reason to refuse to be disarmed, then you eventually will be. As Benjamin Franklin said during the signing of the Declaration of Independence, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

    And since we have a representative republic AND a constitution that forbids the government from infringing upon the right to keep and bear arms, it’s settled, right?

    Then how come all the Democrats and most of the Republicans want to grab guns regardless of the constitution forbidding them from doing that?

      Because they are all traitor scum might be the reason. That piece of paper means nothing to them at all and that right there is treason! Those willing to commit treason at the highest level are the only ones that get to play the game.

    I am so tired of hearing about this, what good is the second amendment if all people do is provide housing for their weapons?
    I fail to see where people are taking the responsibility that is clearly outlined in that amendment.
    If amercans cannot see we are at the point of tyranny, they may ask themselves why the rest of the world can see it clearly.

    We are at a point in time where just possessing guns is of little value without the will to use them. This country is a powder keg just waiting for a match. When it comes, IF it comes it will be ugly, so lets not kid ourselves, we the people will not be listened to without the threat of action against the tyranny that overtakes this nation.

    Every new venture into gun control is a litmus test for the power hungry elites. They’ll keep de-educating American school children and importing illegals who don’t know or give two sh!ts about the Constitution until they have cultivated a culture of idiocracy. Then they’ll be able to hold health care and whatever else over people’s heads in return for their guns. They don’t need to kick down doors and fight a revolution to get what they want-that is only one option. The expedient option. The other takes the long view and requires time and patience-something they possess in abundance.
