Yet another poll, this one by Gallup, confirms that Americans are growing weary of the false rhetoric foisted on them by gun control fascists. In an Oct. 7 article in the Washington Examiner, chief politocal correspondent Byron York offers his insight into the poll results.
“A new Gallup poll shows that the number of Americans who favor tougher gun control laws has dropped to its lowest point in nearly 20 years,” York writes. “Gallup asked the question, ‘In general, do you feel that the laws covering the sale of firearms should be made more strict, less strict, or kept as they are now? Forty-four percent said more strict, 12 percent said less strict, and 43 percent said the laws should be kept as they are now — making for a 55-44 majority opposed to tougher laws.’
“That 44 percent is the lowest number since Gallup began asking this particular question in 1990. A year ago, in October 2008, 49 percent wanted stricter laws. Four years ago, in October 2005, 57 percent wanted tougher laws. In May 2000, 62 percent favored tougher laws, and in August 1999, 66 percent felt that way,” he writes. “Going farther back, in March 1993, 70 percent favored stricter laws, and in September 1990, 78 percent felt that way.”
