AZ: Poll Favors Reforming Gun Laws

Arizona - -( A story in the Arizona Daily Star about an anti-second amendment group included a poll on whether gun laws needed to be stronger, changed a little, kept the same, or reduced.  From the Star:

Do you think we need more laws placing restrictions on guns?
Yes. We need much stronger laws.

Yes, but only a few common-sense changes.

No. The laws are OK the way they are.

No. We have too many laws, and most of them should be eliminated.

What is interesting about this poll is the last choice.   It is almost never given on these old media gun restriction polls.   The times are changing, because it was included on this one.

After only 16 hours, here are the results so far:

  • 5%      Yes. We need much stronger laws.
  • 2%      Yes, but only a few common-sense changes.
  • 7%      No. The laws are OK the way they are.
  • 86%    No. We have too many laws, and most of them should be eliminated.
I think we are in the middle of a sea change of public opinion.  For the last hundred years, we have been increasing government power and centralizing it at the federal level.  Perhaps the next hundred will be spent decreasing and decentralizing government power.
