“… when Gallup dug a little deeper and asked why folks were dissatisfied, they found out that quite a few of those respondents want to see some or all gun control laws repealed.”
Bad news for Joe Biden and anti-gun Democrats: most Americans aren’t interested in new gun control measures like his ban on modern sporting rifles and so-called high capacity ammunition magazines. The new finding is courtesy of the Gallup Poll, which surveyed 1,023 adults to find out how satisfied they were with the current crop of gun laws on the books.
Gallup’s headline about their new survey focuses on the fact that a majority of Americans say they’re dissatisfied with our current gun laws, but that doesn’t mean that every one of those respondents wants more gun control. 56% of respondents expressed dissatisfaction with the status quo, compared to 42% expressing satisfaction, but when Gallup dug a little deeper and asked why folks were dissatisfied, they found out that quite a few of those respondents want to see some or all gun control laws repealed.
According to Gallup, 42% of their respondents said they’re satisfied with the current crop of gun laws, while 41% wanted more gun control, and 8% said they wanted to see fewer gun control laws on the books. Another 7% are both dissatisfied with the current laws on the books but want them to remain in place. Yeah, I can’t figure out that last group of respondents either.
