Recently a Rasmussen poll found that 65 percent of American adults believe "the Second Amendment is to make sure that people are able to protect themselves from tyranny." That includes 54 percent of Democrats and 68 percent of those not affiliated with either major party.
Now Fox has published a poll showing that twice as many voters say there would be less violent crime if more law-abiding Americans owned guns, than if guns were banned.(58 percent to 28 percent)
• Majorities of gun owners (81 percent), non-gun owners (58 percent),
Democrats (58 percent), independents (72 percent) and Republicans (85
percent) say the people who do these kinds of things “will always find
the guns” to commit violent acts.
• A 56-percent majority of voters have a favorable opinion of the NRA, up
significantly from 43 percent in March 2000. The number having a
positive opinion of the group roughly matches the number of voters who
have a gun in their home.
• Finally, the 52 percent of voters saying someone in their household owns
a gun is up from 45 percent in January 2011, and is the highest level
of stated gun ownership in a Fox poll.
These numbers might also explain why Obama's approval rating, according to Gallup, has plummeted by nine percentage points since he started exploiting the tragedy of the Sandy Hook massacre to push for his gun control agenda. Down from 58 percent a week before the New Year to 49 percent.
The more Obama publicly pushes for weapons bans and ammunition limits, the more his approval drops.
