Pew: Gun Rights Tops Gun Control in Major Public Opinion Shift

Sometimes, The Organizer overplays his hand. Regarding a recent Pew poll:

Pew_20150420Exactly two years after President Obama’s bid for gun control following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting died in Congress, a new poll has discovered a huge shift in public opinion to backing Second Amendment gun rights and away from controlling gun ownership.

The reason: Americans now believe having a gun is the best way to protect against crime, 63 percent to 30 percent.

Pew Research Center found that while support for gun control once reached 66 percent, it has dropped to 46 percent while support for gun rights has jumped 52 percent, the highest ever in the past 25 years.

“We are at a moment when most Americans believe crime rates are rising and when most believe gun ownership – not gun control – makes people safer,” said the survey.

The Organizer’s concerted effort to make Ferguson, MO a modern-day Selma, AL may have backfired on him, amongst the constituency he knows the least about… white Americans.
