Gun Poll: Background Checks Supported By 92% Of Americans
by Ariel Edwards-Levy, Huffington Post -- 01/17/2013
Universal background checks on gun buyers are favored by 92 percent of Americans, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Thursday.
Support for the plan crosses demographics, with those in favor including 93 percent of gun households, 89 percent of Republicans, and 85 percent of households with NRA members.
The poll was taken before President Barack Obama's press conference Wednesday, when he called for background checks, among a host of other gun control reforms.
"The only way we can change is if the American people demand it," Obama said.
92% of Americans support Universal Background Checks -- 93% of gun households -- So what's the problem?
No seriously, what is it? Are we afraid of starting the course corrections on the scourge of senseless, tragic deaths in this country, due to the easy availability of high powered guns, to one and all -- No Questions asked?
We should be more afraid of the status-quo, business-as-usual congressional game-players, who are willing to ignore 92% of the public, all to protect their own political careers from some phantom menace, otherwise known as the NRA. (That Lobbying organization that can't even persuade its own members -- to abandon their common sense.)
92 out of 100 people could quite easily vote these status-quo, gutless wonders out of office.
Perhaps the politicians should be more afraid of that outcome, eh?
