Skip to comments.Why push for gun control has stalled
Posted on 01/06/2013 6:15:53 PM PST by marktwain
Support for stricter gun laws hasnt jumped as fast or as far in recent weeks as many liberals had hoped and expected. If youre wondering why, maybe the reason is the shakiness of the publics trust in government itself.

How can this be? In the progressive/regressive liberal mind, government is god.
While the gov’t and gun grabbers (the chattering class) are screaming for more gun control, the public at large is out buying guns in the biggest buying frenzey we’ve ever seen. Over 16 million additional guns have been added in the last 4 years. Seems to be a real disconnect here.
Every time a Grabber screams,
an angel gets his Wingmaster
The liberal mentality, although promoted by an obnoxious and vocal crowd, remains a minority amongst the broader population. Any attempt by the liberals in power to shove gun control down the throats of the American public would turn out the masses that the Republican party has not been able to inspire to the voting booths. This would bring about a revolution, and we would win this battle - hands down.
Why I don’t doubt Obama’s desire to grab our gun, I think a lot of this bluster is Obama’s desire to distract the public from his lousy economy.
I think that there’s a certain segment of the left that is so absorbed with “instant gratification” that they thought Øbongo would simply wave his hand and it would be the law of the land.
Perhaps it is because the last time gun control was on a roll in the 1990s it ran smack dab into 19 moslem hijackers armed with boxcutters.
Suddenly all those people against guns realized they just might need one after all.
too funny! Thanks for the humor on a dreary winter’s eve...
I would rephrase the question. Is it that the public does not trust the government, or that the public is actually afraid of their government, and is unwilling to support even more power grabs by it?
October 13, 2010 - (Gallup) 59% percent of American voters say government has too much power. 8% too little power. They also noted that from 2003 to 2010, the number who believed government had too little power only varied from 6% to 8%.
July 16, 2012 - About 66% of American voters say government has too much power in the United States, according to a Rasmussen Poll released Monday. (Only 8% believe the government is too small.)
The clear trend is *not* a lack of trust in government. Fear is the issue. About two-thirds of Americans are afraid of their government, because it has too much power.
How can you trust someone obsessed with gaining more and more power over your life?
That was good.
Obama promised. Wait until Obamacare kicks in and costs are passed to consumers.
he’s going to make his SOTU speech about guilting republicans into raising taxes and banning guns.. or “balanced ways yo lower the deficit” and “common sense gun regulations”..
Oh, that is FUNNY as h#ll.
Certainly, from the evil blood trails from Fast & Furious, Benghazi and the betrayal of all quasi-allies we had in the Middle East.
If the right powers that be want Obozo removed, there is certainly enough there to get it done. Problem is, the Globalist B_tards want everything he wants. They want the U.S. destroyed and capitalism with it. They prefer Fascism with the winners determined by government connections.
Obozos a Liar and he serves the father-of-lies.
FUBO! and your “masters”.
My doctor always gently chided me for my interest in guns.
Then he asked what to get.
Hopefully some of these panic buyers are also voters...
Zero does go forward with gun control. One hell of a fight ensues. Spurred on by an overwhelming ground swell of outrage, the Republicans suddenly find their spines and their ‘attachments’, and stop zero in his tracks.
Spurred by this victory, they go forward with real budget cuts, and engage and defeat zero on on other issues as well.
Well, I did say fantasies didn't I?
Every time a toilet flushes,
Another liberal gets his brains.
or his Winchester....
