Why the Democrats are miscalculating on guns

The truth about how Americans view their Second Amendment freedom is actually much more interesting than mere political affiliation. This is a reality check worth having just now, as New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, and many other politicians are now openly taking an extreme stance on this issue.
A Gallup poll shows that 27 percent of Democrats, 43 percent of Independents and 55 percent of Republicans say there is at least one gun in their home. Overall, Gallup reports that 42 percent of Americans say they have at least one gun in their home.

Why the Democrats are miscalculating on guns

Let me start by apologizing for the minimalistic approach to posting today, but it has been busy and promises to continue to be even busier.

Reader John R. sent me the link to the article which I managed to read during a break. Now, remember that a lot of people still do not share their gun possession status with others so the figures may vary upwards.  The truth about the influence of those numbers will come soon enough in November. I don’t think either side is going to be happy.

  1. INMHO If you want to alienate the “Regan Democrats” Support radical gun control, and open borders. Good Job Cuomo, Schumer, Pelosi, et. al.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick. Also, You can use html code to decorate your comment.
