Newsflash: Deceptive Questions Skew Polls In Favor Of Gun Control!

posted on June 5, 2015

While ham-handedly trying to discredit decades-running Gallup and Pew polls showing that gun bans have less support than ever, Washington Post writer Todd Frankel this week unquestioningly reported on “polls” conducted by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (yes, that Bloomberg, who gave $1.1 billion to Johns Hopkins) that supposedly contradicted Gallup and Pew.

But in so doing, Frankel simply revealed his own ignorance and/or dishonesty on the issue. As Frankel reported, the Hopkins/Bloomberg polls asked respondents whether they supported policies such as “preventing a felon convicted of a serious crime from having a gun for 10 years.”

If Frankel had a clue—or if those pollsters had a smidgen of integrity—they would have admitted that: a) all felons are “convicted of serious crimes” by definition; and b) are already barred for life, under federal law, from ever even touching a gun. But the truth apparently didn’t fit into their schemes.
