Support wanes for new gun laws.

CBS News Poll : 50% now say .....never mind

In the end, the American people always do the right thing.


CBS News appears to be giving us fair and balanced polling data.

Each passing day leaves me feeling a bit more comfortable to be honest. Those in political office with the agenda's large enough to require a truck to carry around behind them NEEDED emotion, urgency and energy. It's why they hammered and hammered and hammered it some more after CT happened and then encouraged the mass reporting of anything with a gun and more than 3 victims ...as it came to seem to me, anyway.

The obvious point to counter with is, of course, that they can have a new CT level shooting or worse and start the cycle all over again. That's true to a point, but I think it's worse than the boy who cried wolf for the public giving less and less reaction each time. They've become TOO good at desensitizing us and this time? It worked hard against them.

Another month or two at most? People will be asking just why the gun fight had to be chosen when so many other pressing issues of direct national stability and long term survival sit in plain view, crying for action. It's probably what should have been asked back in December, IMO.

With democrats already admitting defeat on an actual gun ban, they are switching to

possible new laws on background checks.

We must be wary and keep ahead of them.
They won't stop, they'll just switch tactics.

Gun Ban was never possible. It is something people been exaggerating.

The poll will change again after next massacre, and Political parties will play ball again to see how many balls can go thru the hoops before the craze is over.


Partisans hold different views on gun control laws: 52 percent of Republicans want the laws kept as they are, while 66 percent of Democrats want stricter laws (down from 78 percent in February).

Half of gun owners themselves want gun laws overall kept as they are, but a quarter call for stricter laws.

Goods news to hear.

Strange though that an MSM outlet is reporting this. Could it be a ruse to lower the guard of the people, so the agenda of disarmament is easier to push?

There is always an agenda at play, with every single piece of news the MSM prints.

Always.

The NRA has spent a lot of money to drum up fear and paranoia.

Mass shootings will continue to happen...slowly but surely public opinion will change as more and more gun supporters loved ones are gunned down by psychos.

This is what happens when you try to legislate via emotions instead of practical, common sense.

America is wising up to the crooks.

Yes but they appear to be keeping 1 eye on the polling data.

They just took 2 steps back.

But what the American people want doesn't really matter.

The government will do what it wants, regardless of what the people want.

Don't you know that?

And what happens when the phychos resort to things other than guns? The problem isn't guns, it's the people with mental issues. Besides, murder is already illegal, but maybe if we make everything illegal that you can murder people with it will stop people from murdering. That type of logic is just hilarious to me.

The NRA has spent a lot of money. Some of it was mine, from when I became a life member 25 years ago.
They could have spent it on free gun locks to distribute if it wasn't for these people trying to nullify the 2nd Amendment with unconstitutional legislation.

Not today.

The American people have spoken.

When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
When the government fears the people, there is liberty.

It's not about murder...it's about our antiquated gun culture and some Americans lack of societal progress.

Americans need to move forward...education is key in this...it is not a coincidence that the highest prevalance of gun ownership is in the least educated areas of the country.

Yes, go after the crazy people.

Leave 99.9% of law abiding Americans alone. Stop attacking our 2nd Amendment.

If it's not about murder then you have no argument. The only argument against gun ownership is the argument that they are used for murders or killing and that they can only be used for these things. Once you admit that it isn't about murder anymore you have no logical argument left.

Good to know it's just about your personal preference vs the perceived good of the public. So happy the truth finally came out.

The NRA is only preaching to the choir. Nobody supporting gun laws is going to be convinced by the NRA to change their mind.

I can honestly say I havent seen one NRA commercial or mailing in at least a year. What I have seen is anti-gun politicians on MSNBC and CNN running their mouths. If they want support the best thing they could do is STFU about their positions.

As far as "until their supporters are gunned down" goes. The vast, I mean VAST majority of deaths by gun are in inner city areas and of people who could stereotypically be classed as Democrats.

Why would anyone with basic common sense even look at a main stream media poll? The twist, turn and target and adjust to fit their program, therefore filling a non-existant gap of agenda driven bs. Look, a new poll, British think that Americans are idiots by 96%!!!!

MSNBC and CNN tried to teach the American people how to think and failed.


Calmer heads prevailed.
