Americans Want Current Laws Enforced, Not More Gun-Control

Americans want better enforcement of firearms laws already on the books, not stricter gun-control, according to the results of a recent poll conducted by Rasmussen.

The data shows that 63% of Americans believe the country needs stricter enforcement of existing gun-control laws. Specifically, more than half of those surveyed believed enforcement of existing laws would do more to reduce firearms-related crimes than new laws.

These numbers stand in contrast to just 26% of those surveyed who support passing even further gun-control measures. Simply put, more gun control is not the answer.

These poll results come just as President Joe Biden (D) recently reiterated his desire to pass a slew of new gun-control laws, including “universal” background checks, bans of some of the most-commonly owned firearms, and much more, all of which we have covered extensively.

The data is clear; Americans don’t want Biden’s gun-control agenda. Combine this data with the fact that more than five million people became new gun owners last year and it’s clear that Americans value this constitutional right.
