A recently published left-of-center poll from this past week discovered that the support for a ban on so-called “assault weapons” has reached a historic low as various Democrat politicians attempt to capitalize on the recent horrid events that took place in Uvalde, Texas.
The plans to try and strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights have been headed up by none other than Democrat President Joe Biden himself, who just recently sounded the call for the banning of all semi-automatic long guns as part of a speech given just this past week.
While many other democrat politicians have slightly rolled back what they are trying to get done this time, actor Matthew McConaughey, who has previously sounded the horn fo rthe outright banning of those same guns, admitted as part of an interview with Fox News this past week that the Democrats still want “the whole loaf” in regards to the restricting of Second AMendment rights but that they are more than willing to just “take a slice” at this point.
Officials with Quinnipiac University discovered in a recent poll that the overall support for a ban on all semi-automatic long guns had reached an all-time low and the many Americans refuse to put support behind the limiting of the number of guns that someone can own and Americans currently don’t expect congress to anything concerning gun control.
“In today’s poll, 50 percent of registered voters support a nationwide ban on the sale of assault weapons, while 45 percent oppose it,” stated the recent poll. “This is the lowest level of support among registered voters for a nationwide ban on the sale of assault weapons since February 2013 when the question was first asked by the Quinnipiac University Poll. The highest level of support among registered voters for a nationwide ban on the sale of assault weapons was in a Quinnipiac poll on February 20, 2018 when 67 percent supported a ban and 29 percent opposed.”
The all-time past all-time high support for the banning of semi-automatic long guns that was highlighted by the poll took place in the wake of the Parkland shooting which claimed the lives of 14 students. The most recent all-time low from the poll takes place in the wake of 19 students losing their lives in Uvalde.
“While 41 percent of Americans think the United States should pursue limiting the number of guns in the country, 55 percent do not think so,” stated the poll. ”
Forty-two percent of Americans expect lawmakers in Washington D.C. to take action on reducing gun violence this year, while 54 percent do not.”
Tim Malloy, a Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst, highlighted that “nearly a decade after the school shooting at Sandy Hook and in the midst of a raging partisan and emotional debate, the assault weapon maintains a foothold, as calls for outlawing ownership hit their lowest level.”
