Does the U.S. need stricter gun control laws?

No

Source: Rasmussen Reports
Methodology: Telephone interviews with 1,000 American adults, conducted on Feb. 14 and Feb. 15, 2006. Margin of error is 3 per cent.

Here’s what’s on the agenda for Congress (from Volume 3, Issue 1, January/February 2006 Firearms Coalition, Hard Corps Report):

  1. Limit Revocation of Gun Rights to Violent Felons Only
  2. Repeal Interstate Sales Ban, NICS makes it Obsolete
  3. Require the Return of Recovered Firearms to their Rightful Owners
  4. Repeal the Federal “Gun-Free School Zone Act” with its Many Potential Pitfalls for Innocent Gun Owners
  5. Repeal the Useless 1986 Machine Gun Ban
  6. Repeal GCA ’68 “Sporting Purposes Language
  7. Removed Useless Restrictions on Silencers so these Useful Tools can be Employed to Make Shooting Safer
  8. Reform NICS Instant Check to Guarantee Timely Sales

The Democrats are fractured over gun control.  The Canadian Gun registry is about to be scrappedNew Orleans.  The list goes on.

Keep up the pressure.  Drive these bigots into political extinction.

  1. “Many adults in the United States believe the current regulations regarding firearms are adequate…” Adequate for what, they do not say.

    “Does the U.S. need stricter gun control laws?” For what purpose, they do not mention. Certainly every despotic government benefits from strict gun laws, so it depends on how you percieve the goal and function of government.

    The question they do not ask is; “Do you believe the Bill of Rights should be enforced, or should Law makers and judges ignore it in favor of political expediency or personal feelings?” Now there’s a poll question I’d like to see.
