And if CNN says there is less support for gun control you kinda have to believe it, right? After all, only Nixon could go to China.
Since 2001, most Americans have favored stricter gun laws, though support has slightly dropped in recent years: 54 percent favored stricter laws in 2001, compared with 50 percent in 2007, according to Gallup polling.
Now, a recent poll reveals a sudden drop — only 39 percent of Americans now favor stricter gun laws, according to a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll.
The gradual, long-term decline in support for gun control from the early 1990s to 2008 coincided with a decline in the murder rate. But this year’s sudden drop seems to be influenced by politics, namely the Obama administration.
Imagine that. A lot of people naively support “gun control” as an undefined concept. But when you start talking specifics like registration, bans and confiscations like the Obama administration has, then most people balk.
The Democrat’s anti-gun agenda is un-American and doomed to failure if they push it through. In the military they have a saying, “Never give an order that you know won’t be obeyed.” The Political version is, “Never pass a law you know won’t be obeyed.” The difference is that military people follow that rule. Politicians never seem to get it.
