Polishing the Turd

Looks like Media Matters is doing their best to try to make the latest polling results not seem so bad for them (or perhaps I should say their anti-gun paymasters) as they really are.

    Once again they try to use slight of hand to shift the focus of the argument. Once again they fail.

    They continue to babble, but each time, each year their readerships falls. I will never be complacent again on my life. I was in the minority of license holders in the 70s and 80s. Picture, fingerprints and exact serial number and gun model carried was the rule of the day, then. I never got involved, selfishly not shared my permissions. But, since the early 90s I share the good words and educate the non believers. One at a time, one trip to the range at a time. I feel there is safety in numbers. I feel more safe being around hundreds of license holders than I do 1 criminal.
    Let’s never allow complacency to occur again!
    And folks, join the NRA and SAF!

    “Indeed, another question included in Gallup’s poll demonstrates robust support for gun violence prevention legislation. 77 percent of respondents feel that the laws covering the sales of firearms should either be stricter or kept as they are now, with only 11 percent calling for them to be weakened. ”

    They have… their math wrong. According to that poll, 44% of Americans feel the laws should be “kept as they are now”, and 43% think they shuodl be less strict. That’s 87%, not 77!

    This seems to be an improvement from ten years ago where this total was 93%, or 20 years ago where this total was 95%. [!!!]

    You could also reverse this statement. Today, 66% of Americans think gun laws should be either kept as they are, or relaxed.

    Ten years ago their number was 36%, and 20 years ago their numbers were at 19%.

    But I happen to agree with them – the freedom movement is not putting its case for more freedom forward well enough.

    There are several shill/troll posts in the comments of that article. I especially like the cliche “I’m a hunter and support 2A, but civilians don’t need military patterned weapons” style posts.
