In the wake of San Bernardino and the high profile shootings that proceeded it, the
propaganda arm of the Democrat party fourth estate conducted two polls to find out how Americans felt about a new assault weapons ban. ABC found that 53% of people OPPOSING a new AWB and the New York Times got about the same numbers with some 50% of people OPPOSING a new AWB. The rationale being that an AWB really won’t do much to stop a “lone wolf” attack.
Common sense and gun rights seem to be winning on this issue.
Month after month we have been seeing record gun sales. When New York and Connecticut managed to pass assault weapon bans and registrations, the compliance rate with these laws was about 4% and 10% respectively.
The rest of the country is spending its hard earned money on handguns and black rifles, and when asked about their purchases, tell the government “piss off, that’s a golf club, I want a lawyer.”
How do the House Democrats react to all of these data points? By drafting a new assault weapons ban. Sure, it has no hope of passing with a GOP majority. But I’m not so sure the 90 Democrats who co-signed it have any idea what they’ve done to themselves.
A few of them may be in such deep blue districts they they have no chance in losing reelection. But the rest of them? We’ll have a change come November of next year to show them what the popular opinion on guns bans is.
