Massive Opposition To Gun Ban



Opposition to Handgun Ban Hits Record-High 74%

Despite Americans’ willingness to strengthen gun laws in the wake of Sandy Hook and other deadly mass shootings, Gallup finds public opposition to a broad ban on the possession of handguns at a record-high 74%. Conversely, the 24% in favor is the lowest recorded since Gallup first asked the question in 1959.

Now if you read the whole article you’ll find this part buried near the bottom. Polls do show people favoring some stricter laws on guns even though they oppose a complete ban. But the questions are kinda vague – it’s like asking people if they favor reducing unemployment. Everybody is in favor of “reasonable” gun laws, but they don’t always agree on what “reasonable” means.

    In other words, don’t mess with the 2nd amendment. Some gun-control laws may be palatable. But thats it.

    Can’t they look to Chicago’s violent crime problems and their gun ban laws ? Doesn’t seem to be working.

    I think the last Preezy election left me numb to any Poll results too 😉

    Americans are notorious for our rebelliousness. Ban alcohol and we’ll create and entire economy around it, complete with fast cars, private clubs, and moonshiners.

    I myself got a hold of a banned library book list at school and read every darned book on there. Declare a war on drugs and drugs will become a real problem. Same with the war on poverty.

    LOL, I didn’t say we were smart, I said we were rebellious.

    ‘A hot temper can add 2 years to your life – Hot tempered Italians and Spanish live nearly 2 years longer than their ‘stiff-upper lip’ English counterparts. Being fiery and expressing negative emotions is the key to long lasting good health, according to researchers at the Univ of Jena in Germany. The study was published in the journal Health Psychologies’. I got loads of bad habits that may kill me. Gotta get a temper somehow, and be fiery. Hmm…….theres only 1 commentor at TCH who fits the temper profile. Maybe I’ll be the 2nd. Lol

      Hillbuzz used to poke fun at Damon, say he was nice to look at but dumber than a box of rocks. They used to make me laugh.

      I haven’t seen Hillbuzz post anything since the start of December? I’m hoping everything is all right with them.

    PMM, you serious? I can’t believe it. Everyone knows that you’re the angel of TCH. Your posts and comments are innocent, open-hearted and sincere. In short, you’re real. Can’t imagine you having a temper. Lol. The only time I saw you display that very itsy-bitsy temper was when you very subtly admonished me right before the GE when I doubted that Romney might not win. I was suitably chastened, like a child. Lol. Naaa, you don’t really have a temper.

    Chicago Tribune newspapers dropping AP wire services…….

    AP’s a POS ever since they assigned 11 fact checkers to Sarah Palin’s book and 0 for Obamas’. Not sure Reuters will be any better.
