Better look at the polls again. 60 percent ban assault weapons and no I don’t know what an assault weapon is either. 85 percent want background checks.
This seems like a lot more than just the far left.

Snap out of it.

Don’t believe the constantly rigged polls. Always consider the source. Leftist pollsters know they can get any result they want and they NEVER have to prove any poll they tout.

So what? You think those numbers get better by the NRA being quiet and agreeing to a few “reasonable” things?

Remember day 1, they attacked the NRA.
When the NRA was completely silent for a week, they were attacking the NRA for not making a comment.
Then when the NRA did comment, it was, “OMG, it’s the one week anniversary!”
Then just last week NRA said something, and once again, “OMG, it’s the one month anniversary!”

You are delusional if you think anything other than full capitulation would make them popular. And when you puss out and back down, people start to think you have no valid points to make. The way to fix bad numbers is to attack with both barrels, not to try to be liked. Thats a fools errand.

Opinions polls change. Right now the left has people reacting on the basis of emotion. Obama won't be able to maintain those numbers over time. When people start thinking and stop reacting the poll numbers will shift. Obama knows that which is why he is trying to stampede congress.

Those of us who support the second amendment need to slow the process down and make our arguments - write our legislators, call our legislators and attend events this weekend. Be seen, be heard, be energized. Gun owners represent a voting block of tens of millions of people that mostly don't vote for Democrats. Most liberal politicians may not like us but they sure don't want us aroused.

The fact that leftist journalists have now lied about there being private armed security guards, not just Secret Service agents, at a certain up scale DC private school shows that the NRA has made their point. One of the criticisms of the NRA in the immediate wake of the Sandy Hook massacre was that the had gone to ground. The NRA is now doing what I pay my dues to have them do, present our side's argument - loudly.

You’re the one who needs to check the polls again. There have been two polls showing a majority (51%) oppose an assault weapons ban, with like 44% supporting. This was after Newtown. The AP poll is rigged with the addition of “military-style” in their question.

Further, Gallup in late December 2012 showed a record percentage of Americans (74%) opposed to a ban on handguns.

The polls with these results always come from liberal sites.

“Better look at the polls again. 60 percent ban assault weapons”

Push poll results. When asked in a more straight forward manner, the support for further gun control legislation is at around 4%.

“and no I don’t know what an assault weapon is either.”

That’s pretty clear. I doubt you know anything about any kind of gun.

“85 percent want background checks.”

More parroting of Obama’s lies.

“This seems like a lot more than just the far left.”

Sure, it even includes some gullible useful idiots that post on FR. Why are you on this site? It is pretty clear that you aren’t interested in truths or learning.
