CBS Poll: Support for More Gun Control Plummets

CBS Poll: Support for More Gun Control Plummets

Shortly after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) announced that Dianne Feinstein’s “assault weapons” ban was being cut from Democrats’ broader gun control package, a CBS poll shows that public support for any new gun control measures is down considerably. 

The poll shows that support for any new gun control is at 47%, a 10 percentage-point drop from highs following the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary. Moreover, those who support new gun control laws are only 8 percentage points higher than those who think we have enough gun control already.

The greatest divergence in opinion arose when CBS asked the questions along party lines: “52 percent of Republicans want the laws kept as they are and 66 of Democrats want stricter laws.” However, just last month, “78 percent” of Democrats wanted stricter laws. 

This is a great victory for the new media, which has spent the last three months countering vapid gun control claims pushed by the establishment media. This poll suggests public opinion is tipping to a point where support for more gun control could go the way of the “assault weapons” ban.
