Poll Finds Gun Rights More Popular Than Gun Control

The Pew Research Center published a poll today revealing that most Americans prefer gun ownership to gun control by a margin of 52 to 46, meaning that support for gun rights has reached another all time high.

The poll says more Americans are coming to support their gun rights because of rising crime, finding “We are at a moment when most Americans believe crime rates are rising and when most believe gun ownership – not gun control – makes people safer.”

Sixty-three percent of Americans said that controlling gun ownership was the best way to prevent crime, meaning that more and more voters are coming to see the value of defensive gun use.

This means that the hypocrites in the White House and the left wing media have had it wrong this entire time. Town Hall reports:
“These numbers suggest that Americans are rejecting the Obama administration's gun control agenda. Two years ago, after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, President Obama showed real remorse for the young lives lost, yet offered a misguided response by trying to push through anti-gun legislation. His gun control measure, which would have expanded background checks and banned "assault weapons," didn't get very far in Congress. Now, it's clear his gun control agenda is just as unpopular outside Capitol Hill.”

  1. Interesting! Especially coming from a left leaning polling organization.

    The whole gun hyped-up control issue was another lefty strawman argument that they are famous for. It's good to know that our fellow Americans see through the concocted smoke and mirrors. Further, Americans can clearly see that the need for self-defense is now greater than before King Putt was elected since he and Eric Witholder have poured gasoline on racial tensions ala Ferguson and have elevated the problems. The left's initial schemes have backfired, as they all do eventually since facts and logic trump tyranny every time.

    Good post. This is encouraging.
