Decline of gun control support

Interesting article on Yahoo about gun control’s support decline, even in light of recent shootings.

According to a Gallup poll in 1990, 78 percent of those surveyed said laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter, while 19 percent said they should remain the same or be loosened.

By the fall of 2004 support for tougher laws had dropped to 54 percent. In last year’s sounding, 43 percent said they should be stricter, and 55 percent said they should stay the same or be made more lenient.

Why do I think this decline of support is occurring?

  1. First, because more and more Americans are becoming comfortable with, and owners of firearms.
  2. Second, because more and more Americans realize that gun control laws do not prevent crimes. They only make criminals of decent folk.
