Why Millennials Are Skeptical Of The Gun-Control Agenda

A Wednesday editorial in The Washington Times took to task the widespread skepticism expressed over recent polling reports that indicate millennials’ strong support for gun rights. “Millennials are ... less interested in gun control than those who are older, so the data suggests it's unlike a number of other attitudes, say like gay marriage, where young people are much more liberal," said Gallup Poll Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport. "We did not see that in our data on guns."

So why do they have this prevailing opinion? Simply put, because gun control doesn’t work and millennials are smart enough to know it. The politicians and liberals who push to limit your right to self-defense can’t point to any results showing more restrictive gun laws impact violent crime. You need look no further than Chicago for proof. Kudos to this generation for believing in facts instead of fallacies.
