FOX News Poll: Would Tougher Gun Laws Have Helped Stop Virginia Tech Shooting Rampage?

This poll says it all and I am glad Americans are waking up...



From FNC:


Americans say tougher gun laws would not be able to stop things like the Virginia Tech shooting because people who commit these kinds of acts will always find guns.

The latest FOX News poll finds that about one of five Americans (19 percent) believes tougher gun laws can help stop shootings like the one at Virginia Tech, while a 71 percent majority disagrees.

Majorities of gun owners (78 percent) and non-gun owners (64 percent) alike believe that so-motivated individuals will always find ways around gun laws.

Democrats (29 percent) are more than three times as likely as Republicans (8 percent) to say they think tougher gun laws could help stop these kinds of shootings.

Opinion Dynamics Corp. conducted the national telephone poll of 900 registered voters for FOX News from April 17 to April 18. The poll has a 3-point error margin

It is time for everyone to wake up to the fact you are responsible for your own safety and the safety of those you care about. The police cannot protect you and it is not their responsibility, it is yours.
