Americans Get It: Anti-Gun
Policies Won't Stop Criminals

By Jason Ouimet. Jan 18, 2022

I don’t think I’m telling you anything you don’t already know when I say that 'gun control' has been an abject failure when it comes to stopping violent criminals from preying on law-abiding citizens. After all, your understanding of this axiom is likely a large part of why you joined.

But what may be news to you is that so many of your fellow Americans actually understand this, too.

A Gallup poll from last November shows that the general public’s support for making “the laws covering the sale of firearms …more strict” has fallen to its lowest level in nearly a decade. And, considering so many Americans are not even aware of how strict gun laws already are—present company excluded—that’s pretty big news.

Anti-gun extremists—with support from gun-banning billionaires and the legacy media—have been trying to convince average Americans that the literally thousands of gun-control laws currently on the books simply don’t exist. They make outrageous claims, like in 2015, when President Obama said it was easier to buy a gun in some neighborhoods than it was to buy a book or fresh vegetables.

More recently, Joe Biden’s failed nominee to head the ATF, David Chipman, claimed it was easier to buy a gun than it was to buy a beer in “much of America.”

Sadly, there are some people who will simply believe these blatant lies designed to support any and all forms of 'gun control'. But the Gallup poll is at least a promising indication that most Americans do not believe such preposterous pronouncements. .....
