Rasmussen Poll: Americans Want Better Gun Law Enforcement, Not New Gun Laws - 3

According to a Jan. 16-17 Rasmussen poll, 57 percent of Americans think “stricter enforcement of existing gun control laws” is more important than creating new gun laws and only 32 percent of those polled think creation of new gun control laws is more important than stricter enforcement.
               
Rasmussen Reports is a polling company founded by Scott Rasmussen in 2003 that produces public opinion data, analysis, and commentary that is distributed through a daily email newsletter, an online video service, syndicated radio spots, a weekly television show, and a weekly newspaper column. The company's slogan is, "If it's in the news, it's in our polls."
               
After the Sandy Hook school shooting, President Barack Obama introduced 23 new proposals on gun control and restrictions, purportedly in response to public demand. Senior White House advisor David Plouffe told the AP that the “common-sense proposals” engendered “enormous support” from the American people.
               
But, as Kelsey Osterman writes in redalertpolitics.com on Jan. 21, maybe that assumption is premature.
               
"If the POTUS really wants to listen to what the people want," Osterman writes, "he needs to face the fact that enforcement -- not legislation -- is the word of the day."

I live in New York, so I know what they rammed down our throats. Cuomo is the man who aspires to be president in 2016.

Hi...

I think that enforcement is far from being up to standards. Look at the guns that were 'given' to Mexico by the US, for example. Enforce the laws that we already have.

States, especially New York, have already jumped on the bandwagon with myriad new laws, effective in 2014.

Excellent information. Our POTUS regularly states that "most Americans" want this or that. This situation is no different than his tax plans for us all, plenty of new revenue, token budget cuts, and no reduction in the deficit. His reason for "common sense gun control" is just one more constitutional right down the tube to make us all more dependent on the Federal government.
