A Million Americans Say Obama Wrong on Gun Control

I took part in an online survey on gun control that was being run by Newmax. There are five questions that only take a minute or two to answer.  The questions are:

1) Should the federal government regulate guns of any type?

Yes, it should

No, it should not

 

2) Should Congress ban semi-automatic weapons?

Yes, it should

No, it should not

 

3) If Congress does not act, should President Obama use an executive order to ban or strictly control the sale of semi-automatic weapons?

Yes, he should

No, he should not

 

4) Do you agree that the Second Amendment gives citizens the right to own and bear guns without infringement?

Yes, I agree

No, I don’t agree

 

5) Who did you vote for in the last election?

Barack Obama

Mitt Romney

Other

 

When I got the results back, I discovered that just over one million people had taken the survey.  On the average, three out of every four people voted against Obama’s proposed gun control laws.  Here are the results that I received: (yours will be different)

Should the federal government regulate guns of any type?

Yes, it should                        290,534(28%)

No, it should not                   726,341(71%)

 

Should Congress ban semi-automatic weapons?

Yes, it should                        232,232(22%)

No, it should not                   792,404(77%)

 

If Congress does not act, should President Obama use an executive order to ban or strictly control the sale of semi-automatic weapons?

Yes, he should                     211,163(20%)

No, he should not                812,126(79%)

 

Do you agree that the Second Amendment gives citizens the right to own and bear guns without infringement?

Yes, I agree                           831,141(81%)

No, I don’t agree                   192,843(18%)

 

However, every time you hear Obama, Biden, Pelosi or Reid talk, they say that the majority of American’s are for their proposed gun control laws, including banning assault-style weapons, high capacity magazines and universal background checks.  Yet everyone I know are against all of it.  I, like everyone else I know, believe that every piece of proposed gun control is a violation of the Second Amendment and therefore unconstitutional.  Guess that’s the difference between Obama’s world and the real world.
