Americans still love their guns
A new Rassumussen poll released last week suggests Americans prefer living in neighborhoods with where they’re allowed to arm themselves over gun-free locals.
According to Rasmussen:
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 22% of Likely U.S. Voters would feel safer living in a neighborhood where nobody was allowed to own a gun over one where they could have a gun for their own protection. Sixty-eight percent (68%) would feel safer in a neighborhood where guns are allowed, while 10% are not sure.
The survey was conducted over a group of 977 likely voters. The results are consistent with other polling conducted by Rasmussen.
In a poll released in 2013, 62% of respondents said they would feel safer if their young children attended a school manned by an armed guard.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 62% of Americans with children of elementary or secondary school age would feel safer if their child attended a school with an armed security guard. Just 24% say they would feel safer if their child went to a school where no adults were allowed to own a gun. Fifteen percent (15%) are not sure.
Yet another poll published in 2013 revealed 64% of respondents thought it would be bad if only the government had guns.
74% still believe Americans have a Constitutional right to own guns and 57% think it’s more important to enforce current gun laws than it is to create new ones.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 32% of American Adults believe creation of new gun control laws is more important. Fifty-seven percent (57%) think more emphasis should be put on stricter enforcement of existing gun control laws. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure.
In spite of all the bad news that seems to indicate irreversible cultural decay, it’s comforting to know Americans still love their guns.
