Gun Grabbers Disarmed As Support For Their Agenda Fades

By Susan Duclos

"Armed" with school children surrounding him and exploiting the tragedy of Newtown, Barack Obama signed 23 executive orders in a push for gun control, back in January.

Gun grabbers like Senator Dianne Feinstein proposed banks on 157 type of guns and a national conversation ensued, much to the detriment of Obama, Feinstein and liberals gun control agenda.

Soon after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., announced an assault weapons ban would not be part of a gun control bill, a new CBS News poll shows support for stricter gun control laws overall has dropped since the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Currently, support for stricter gun control laws stands at 47 percent today, down from a high of 57 percent just after the shootings. Thirty-nine percent want those laws kept as they are, and another 11 percent want them made less strict.

There was not nearly enough support in the U.S. Senate for Feinstein's weapons ban and ultimately Senate majority leader Harry Reid stripped Feinstein's bill out of the overall Senate gun bill, giving her the option to add it as an amendment so vulnerable red state Democrats could vote against the ban but for the gun control bill itself. Reid also stripped the proposal to limit ammunition clips and magazines out of the Senate gun bill, and offer to allow it as an amendment.

Unlike Obama and liberals, the majority of Americans seem to understand that preventing law abiding citizens from legally obtaining any type of weapon available to them now, would not prevent criminals from obtaining those weapons.

Instead of law abiding citizens being disarmed, it seems that Obama, Feinstein and liberal gun grabbers have themselves been disarmed, by the very public that stands firm against any lawmaker that attempts to violate their Second Amendment right to bear arms.
