New polls results are out, and they don’t look good for the gun control groups. Â 75% believe the constitution guarantees a right to own a gun. Â Even on gun control, we’re roughly split:
What Outdoor Life left out was that Americans appear to be evenly divided regarding the much hotter issue of gun control:Â 44% of respondents said stricter laws are needed, while 44% said they’re not. The other 12% were unsure.
It’s the 12% of unsure people we need to reach. Â Also, much of that 44% have no idea what the current gun laws are. Â In my experience, people are more accepting of the status quo if they understand it. A lot of people honestly think machine guns are completely legal, and think those ought to be restricted. That’s more of the 44% than you might imagine.
