Voters Are Skeptical Of Gun Control

( A recent poll from Rasmussen Reports found that the majority of Americans are skeptical about gun control laws because criminals are unlikely to obey them.

In a poll conducted after last week’s mass shooting on a Brooklyn subway, Rasmussen found that the majority of respondents don’t believe more gun control would have prevented the Brooklyn attack.

Among likely voters surveyed, 51 percent said stricter gun control laws wouldn’t stop these kinds of shootings. Another 38 percent said stricter gun control laws would prevent mass shootings like the Brooklyn subway attack while 11 percent were unsure.

Of course, that didn’t stop President Biden from exploiting the subway shooting to demand a “crackdown” on so-called “ghost guns” while unilaterally issuing gun control measures via executive order.

Last week, the president nominated DOJ prosecutor Steve Dettelbach to head up the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. In his remarks during Biden’s Rose Garden event, Dettelbach called for an “all hands on deck” approach to “gun violence,” claiming that Americans are still facing “fear and isolation,” not from COVID, but from “an epidemic of firearms violence.”

Yes, but mostly in Democrat-run cities that already have strict gun control laws on the books.

It’s as if the majority of Americans are right; no amount of gun control laws will stop criminals from shooting and killing people.

During last week’s Rose Garden event, Biden also declared war on “ghost guns” despite how infrequently these assemble-yourself weapons are used in violent crime. He vowed to crack down on “rogue gun dealers” while “disrupting illegal gun trafficking.”

In short, Biden made the same vows last week that he made last year after another mass shooting.

And according to Rasmussen, from last year to this year, voters’ skepticism of Biden’s gun control plans has remained “virtually identical.”
