    On specific measures to reduce gun violence, there’s broad support for requiring criminal background checks on all gun buyers (90 percent) and passing “red flag” laws that allow police to take guns from people shown to be a danger to themselves or others (81 percent).

    Americans have finally gotten tired of this (and as I type this, six cops have just been shot and there's still an active shooter situation). I was wondering when it would happen. The numbers from that poll are incredible. The GOP is completely on the wrong side of many major issues, and we can now include guns on the list.

    The problem of course is not assault riffles.... the problem is banning them won't solve one thing and two hours after they are banned, the libs will be back on the warpath, demanding bans on the next types of weapons, then the next types of weapons then the next....

    The left's unquestionable and undeniable goal is a complete disarmament of the US population by any means necessary (the 2nd amendment be damned) and they won't relent. They can't do it in one fell swoop, so they will do it piecemeal, one type of weapon at a time.

    Anyone with a brain can see absolutely clearly what it's all about, the left are after ALL guns, assault riffles is just a good start for them.

    I'm a leftist and I don't want "complete disarmament of the US population". I bet I even own more guns than you.

    Eh. Maybe think about adding more education, in school, plus make safety classes mandatory prior to gun purchases.

    "Banning" guns is an easy bandaid idea, that won't ever work. The shear number of guns already in the states makes it nigh impossible (going by the current list of rights available to the people anyway) to confiscate all guns in the country. It's too far gone.

    Maybe. Can't hurt to try. It might have a positive effect down the line.

    Your leftist ilk did not want socialism (they were insulted to be called socialists), they do now.
    Your leftist ilk did not want open borders, they do now
    Your leftist ilk did not want universal healthcare, they do now.


    I can continue this list of leftists' conveniently evolving views and shifting goalposts for pages. You're not fooling anyone, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. The libs' goal is ALL guns and many of your more "radical" representatives talk about this openly. And we know how quickly radical views become mainstream in the liberal bubble.

    Yep, the GOP is on the side of the Constitution which is certainly the wrong position to the left.

    I'm pretty sure most people in favor of banning semi-autos don't know what semi-autos are.

    I don't believe that 67% even know what an assault weapon is. They may as well have asked about assault clips and the dreaded chainsaw under-barrel attachment. The problem with these surveys is that those with jobs and families do not answer unidentified calls or have time for phone surveys.

    Of course they do! They are scary looking (mostly black) guns with that shoulder thing that goes up.

    I think you poll may be somewhat inflated

    For many Americans the only thing they know about the AR-15 is watching movies and TV using M16s.

    That's a totally unfair representation! Obviously a semi-auto also has the "clip" thingie that goes down.

    The ignorance is incredible.

    You can't walk into a Wal Mart or Bass Pro Shop and buy an M4 carbine or an M16A2 rifle. What most ignoramuses call an "assault rifle" is nothing of the sort and a blanket ban on semi-automatic weapons would be unconstitutional.

    Pfft. Democrats aren't even interested in addressing the underlying causes of this violence. All they want to focus people's attention on is the symptom and it's not difficult to figure why.

    I actually agree with this. Teaching gun safety will go a long way. Used to teach hunter's safety course in school but they don't do that any longer either.

    I was wondering that too. Most handguns are semi-automatics. Do they just not know what that is but say yes to banning, because it sounds so progressive.

    ^^^^ Wisdom bomb.

    The Leftists are incremental in their seizure of rights, power, and control. The take little bits, over and over and over again and never give back. It's a gradual slide into the abyss of Authoritarianism.
