News Polls Show Americans Unimpressed With New Gun Control

posted on January 8, 2016

Informal polling conducted by CNN, The Seattle Times and WFSB in Washington, D.C., are all reporting a strong rejection of President Obama’s new executive action on guns—despite the liberal slant of many of their readers. The president’s announcement of the new gun-control plans has not been the slam-dunk with voters that he seems to have been hoping for. 

“The American people do not need more emotional, condescending lectures that are completely devoid of facts,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action. Chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, Alan Gottlieb, said in a press statement, “Once again his actions have backfired. Ironically, he’s the reason more people are buying more firearms.” While President Obama and like-minded politicians delude listeners—and possibly themselves—with phony statistics about “90 percent” of Americans wanting expanded background checks, figures like these suggest that the majority may actually oppose such measures.
