    they did a story on all the recent shootings this week and talked about gun control

    "3/4 of americans believe that the constitution entitles americans to be able to own guns."

    "6 out of 10 americans are in favor of some sort of stricter gun laws"


    they went on to talk about how no one is talking about gun control right now and interviewed a senator from texas. she said "maybe if these people had a gun to defend themselves they would not be dead."

    :bowdown:

    news went on to state that the side for gun ownership appears to be the current winning side
     
  2. You'll notice that democrats are very careful to avoid using the words "gun control." Those words are political poison.

    "6 out of 10 americans are in favor of some sort of stricter gun laws"

    so the majority is in favor of stricter gun laws... how does this mean that the side fighting AGAINST gun control is winning?

    Only because the media spins it that way. A lot of these problems have been going on for a long time, just nobody took notice of it until lately. :hs:

    Living in VA, I am actually shocked this year, there was a big call for more strict gun control, but we have actually been loosening a lot of laws, which is progress.

    The laws disallowing public universities from passing rules banning CCW aren't going anywhere, but it looks like they are overturning the restaraunt concealed ban finally.
