Pew Poll: Support for Gun Rights Exceeds Support for Gun Control

Surprise!

For the first time in over 20 years, Americans support gun rights more than gun control.

In a Pew Research poll released Wednesday, 52 percent are in support of the protection of gun rights and 46 percent support gun control. This is the first time in two decades that Pew has found more support for gun rights than gun control.

Backing for gun rights has been on the rise since January 2013, when it had 45 percent supporting protections. During that time period, support for gun control also fell from 51 percent to its current standing.

So…support for gun rights has been on the rise despite a full-court press from President Obama, the MSM, and gun-control Democrats throughout America in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook tragedy. Let us also not forget that Michael Bloomberg has been throwing money all over the place to gut the Second Amendment.

Now, state legislators have formed an anti-gun coalition to keep alive the liberal fantasy that Americans want comprehensive gun-control legislation.

The American people have no interest in onerous, comprehensive gun bills and they never will. The civil unrest we are seeing in the past few weeks isn’t going to change that. It will more than likely make law-abiding citizens even more steadfast about their rights to protect themselves.

The only people who want Americans to have restricted access to firearms are the same people giving tacit or overt approval to the lawless mobs who have been dominating the news lately.

Good luck with that.
