    Gallup and Rasmussen polls show gun control advocates are outside the mainstream.

    Gallup Confirms Rasmussen Poll on Infringements: Gallup finds a new low of 44% of Americans saying the laws covering firearm sales should be made more strict. That is down 5 points in the last year and 34 points from the high of 78% recorded the first time the question was asked, in 1990.

    Today, Americans are as likely to say the laws governing gun sales
    should be kept as they are now (43%) as to say they should be made more strict. Until this year, Gallup had always found a significantly higher percentage advocating stricter laws.

    At the same time, 12% of Americans believe the laws should be less
    strict, which is low in an absolute sense but ties the highest Gallup
    has measured for this response. These results are based on Gallup's
    annual Crime Poll, conducted Oct.1-4 this year.

    The poll also shows a new low in the percentage of Americans favoring a ban on handgun possession except by the police and other authorized persons, a question that dates back to 1959. Only 28% now favor such a ban.

    The high point in support for a handgun-possession ban was 60% in the initial measurement in 1959. Since then, less than a majority has been in favor, and support has been below 40% since December 1993...

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
