Gallup: Gun Control Not High on List of Problems

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Gallup’s July survey found that the number of Americans who cited guns or gun control as the most important problem facing America had returned to levels similar to before the shooting in Parkland, Fla. This month, just two percent of Americans say guns and gun control are the most important problem. It was only a few short months ago that a record number of Americans cited guns as the most important problem (April, 13%).

Guns aren’t mentioned at all in the Gallup article on the July survey – not even in the section about “Americans’ Views of the Top Problem Facing the U.S.”

Perhaps even more tellingly, it was not one of the top five most important problems cited by Democrats. You’ll only find the data on guns/gun control if download the full trend fileand turn to the last page.

After Parkland, we were told that “[t]he gun control movement has reached a tipping point” and that “[t]his time it’s different.”

But the real difference might simply have been the intensity with which the agenda-driven media pursued the issue when they believed there was an opportunity to generate momentum behind it.

The fortunate truth is that Parkland-type incidents remain extremely rare. And as time passes, details emerge that refute the false idea that gun control could stop the few that actually do occur.  In the case of Parkland, these included details on the missteps of local law enforcement and the FBI and missed opportunities for early intervention and even for response at the scene.

However many Americans see guns and a perceived lack of gun control as problem facing the country, few consider it the most important. Economic issues, immigration, government, healthcare, and the political environment all rate higher, as well they should.

The rarity of such events makes the ones that do occur seem that much more awful. It is understandable the nation becomes riveted for a time. But knee jerk reactions promote neither safety nor good policy. And to their credit, Americans increasingly understand this as cooler heads prevail.

&Joe….
Did I strike your cognitive dissonance in the wrong way ? Did I say something that went over your head, being contrary to the brainwashing you have been spoon fed all your life ? I wrote 3 posts on the 23rd. Can you be more specific as to what triggered your ire, Mr. Einstein, or what sentence structure you could not understand ? BTW, your use of punctuation has been shown to be lacking. Can you identify your mistake ? ? ?.

I support gun control.
One must know what is behind your target.
One must know what the target is.
One must never touch a weapon while angry.
One must know how to hold a weapon.
One must understand the dangers of a weapon.
One must treat every weapon as if it is loaded at all times.
One must understand to control the pressure on the firing mechanism.
One must understand that weapons must be maintained.
One must understand DemocRATic communist party wants to DISARM America.

One must know where to buy the best ammo for the least amount of money, and who has free shipping.

I love these kinds of posts. They show intelligence, calmness, education, clear thinking, and most importantly a deep understanding of the problems facing our nation. Mr. Cranium has clear understanding of the principles not only of communism and socialism but also democracy. He knows the importance of being registered to vote and actually going out and voting. He is to be complimented on a deep understanding of proper grammar and the use of the English language to get his well thought out ideas across to the general population. Thank you Mr. Cranium, we need millions more just like you.

@Joe…I read an article 2 or 3 days ago that quoted a high executive of a voting machine manufacturing company who said that their machines came pre loaded with software that allowed invisible, undetectable remote access. And then there has been the disclosure of the “PROJECT TALPIOT” problem, whereby the Intel company that is located in Israel, has been putting their little processor on all the Intel processors they make in that country. So, if you have an Israeli made Intel chip inside your computer, you have the Zio-Nazis inside your Israeli made Intel chip. The Zio-Nazis can then open… Read more »

@JS…. I think Richard Cranium knows exactly what their wet dream is. For being 1.8% of the population, how do you think so many of them are over represented in Media, Education, Government, Medicine, Law, Gun Control, Finance, Banking, etc etc etc ? How come all congress critters are required to sign “The Pledge”, the one Sen. Cynthia McKinney refused to sign, or else their opponent suddenly receives tons of money for their re-election campaign while the “McKinneys” receive nothing ? Of course, you never see anything about this on “the news”. You naysayers are either part of the problem,… Read more »

Cranium….is Eric Holder a Jooo ? I do not think that it is “All Jews in the CIA to Disarm the Goyim”. They also have their useful idiots that help them. And all Jooos are not for the disarmament of the Goyim. I think you are off by about 10 to 15 percent. It would be interesting to take a poll and see what the actual numbers are. And we should poll the Christian Zionists also, to find out what percentage of them is bent on disarming the rest, in their deluded quest for a perfect world on Earth.

Once again I have to compliment a poster on his exquisite use of the English language, including spelling and grammar. What is a Jooo? Is this some kind of Pacific Islander. Or is it a new religion that is just now coming to the fore? Or could this genius be referring to members of the Jewish faith? I wonder how many of the Jewish faith this cretin actually knows of first hand? I sincerely hope he knows what “cretin” means but if he doesn’t he can easily google it. Please note that since I have been castigated on this blog… Read more »
