Support for gun control drops even farther
Those are the results of the latest Gallup Poll. The result on support for a ban on semiautos reminds me of a remark Prof. Brian Patrick made at the last Gun Rights Policy Conference. He cited a poll where people were asked just what a semiautomatic is, and given four choices. 23% got it right. He remarked a band of drunken monkeys should be able to score 25% on a four option question.
He had another interesting insight. He held up a "No guns in the park" sign and asked if anyone knew what it really was. His answer: "magic." The belief that if you hang this talisman up, bad spirits or at least bad people will have to stay away.
