So you make an erroneous and self serving statement. Then when the reality is put in front of you rather than refute it you simple "high five" - yourself. As if that makes your incorrect statement somehow more true? Really?
Myth: Most Americans favor gun control
Fact: Americans believe that parents and popular culture are more responsible for
violence in America than firearms.
Fact: 52% of Americans in 2006 did not believe more gun control is needed.
Fact: Only 39% believe stricter gun control is needed, down from 43% in an earlier poll.
Fact: A 1999 survey by CBS (hardly a pro gun organization) found these responses:
• Only 14% of Americans believe that gun control can prevent violence with guns.
• 56% of people said enforcement of existing laws is the better way to reduce violent crime than new gun control laws.
• Only 4% said gun control should be a top issue for the government.
Besides we already HAVE gun control. There are 22,000 local state and federal firearms laws in force now. Adding a few more isn't going to change a thing. You simply cannot miro regulate/manage stupidity or evil PERIOD.
