Gallup Poll on Gun Laws

They offered an open-ended question about what are the most important things that could prevent mass shootings.

1. Stricter gun control
2. Better mental health screening

The third one about education contains a little something the pro-gun crowd will like.  But you know what's missing completely, perhaps they asked the wrong sampling of people, but nowhere on the list is More guns among the law-abiding.

What do you think that means?  Do you think only extremists and fanatics believe in that as a remedy? That's what I think.

Please leave a comment.


  1. Wow. That poll says a lot. Over a thousand adults, and the number one response, at 24%, was "stricter gun control." It's certainly NOT "more guns = safer society."

    Who is the NRA representing again??

  2. More guns or less guns does not MAKE any society any more or less safe.



  3. I gotcha Orygunner, you want PROOF of correlation.
