According to a “pole”, more than 65% of those surveyed in the northeastern US want tighter gun restrictions. This from Emily Miller reporting. Surprised she didn’t call BS instantly. With any luck at all, S&W will make enough to move all operations out of the northeast. “They” don’t want “them” there so pull up stakes and head out. I’ll help ya move.
I call BS on that 65% figure. Both NY and CT had to ram their anti 2a bills thru as a ECert, cutting out most committee headings and public comments. Even in deep blue CT, most of the public comments on news sites were pro-2a and many of the anti 2a protesters were bussed in.
