    Public Support For Gun Control At Lowest


  2.   
  3. That's encouraging! I was starting to feel like all was lost with the recent shootings and all the "guns are bad" talk in the news! :o


    ALWAYS carry! ~ NEVER tell!

    --- Some of the friendliest people I have ever talked to are gun owners and shooters and according to the gun activists we are the mass murders and felons of the nation???

    The liberal press and our elected officals would have us think there is a whole lot more public support than there really is. I think most Americans are smarter than that or at least I hope so.

    Hurts their feelings being the minority and finding out that not everyone agrees with their liberal views.

    I posted a little comment on their talking challenging some of their stats and point out how they argue with emotions. :D

    Anti-gun views aren't liberal though; liberal means 'permissive'. Since the 2nd amendment is extremely permissive concerning firearms, views that support it are simultaneously conservative (conserving the meaning of the constitution) and liberal (permitting all the freedoms promised by the constitution). Banning firearms is neither conservative nor liberal, and probably is best described as 'unconstitutional'.

    This is assuming 'liberal' has a semantic meaning other than 'doody-head'.

    Political designations of liberal and conservative differ from those you are pointing out. Conservatives generally follow the Constitution closer while liberal political views often skew the Constitution. This is why you get "far right" and "far left" designations. It is true that not all liberals are anti 2A, but it's very few.

  10. The problem is in the way the questions are worded.
    The simple truth is that people are becoming more afraid to walk down the streets of America than ever before.
    Realistically there is no way to control guns and the rational thinking person realizes this.
    The publicizing of more and more stories about stopped robberies and rapes and other crimes by legally armed citizens really hits home. Criminals that are shot and or killed in the act really attract attention.
    Even in America the majority of folks still like to see the good guy win!:D
    Nuke'em til they glow then shoot them in the dark!

  11. There are very good reasons why only TWO states prohibit the citizen from concealed carry, WI and IL, why more states have "shall issue", and why more states have passed the Castle Doctrine which extends self defense outside the home; that reason is people are fed up with crime and the inability of the police and law makers to stop the ever increasing gang violence. As we all know, blaming the guns for so long has done nothing to solve the problem of violence since gun control does nothing to stop the criminal. Now we see a push to eliminate "gun free zones" where more mass murders take place. The trend is for less gun control, not more. These facts are ignored by the media and the "Brady Bunch". The armed citizen is the FIRST line of defense.
