Fierce Moral Urgency: Only 4% of Americans Rate Gun Control as Important Issue

Posted by on Apr 17, 2013 at 7:50 am

No wonder these douchebags in Washington are in such a hurry to ram through anti-gun legislation. Have a look at the top four issues concerning Americans and ask why these idiots are doing nothing about them, instead distracting us with red herring issues.

Economy in general                                      24%

Unemployment/Jobs                                   18%

Dissatisfaction with Government             16%

Federal budget deficit/Federal debt        11%

Obama has zero answers about any of the above, so is it any wonder he’s so desperately dancing on the graves of the Newtown dead in order to distract from his myriad failures?

As Gallup reports, “Few Americans mention guns or immigration as the most important problems facing the nation today, despite the current attention lawmakers in Washington are giving to these issues. The economy still dominates as the top concern, followed by jobs and dissatisfaction with the general way in which Congress and the government work.”

If only we had a legitimate media to point this stuff out.

    most Americans do want new gun control legislation passed. Most Americans do want to see the 30,000 Americans who die each year by gun shot reduced

    John – what good does passing laws that won’t be enforced do?

    We already have background checks mandated for retail gun sales, and the retailers at gun shows HAVE to run background checks.

    How about enforcing what we’ve got, instead of passing more that duplicate them?

    Bullshit.

    Most Americans do want to see the 30,000 Americans who die each year by gun shot reduced

    Just like most Americans want the 45,000 Americans who die by auto accidents each year reduced. Start disarming the gangbangers in the large metro areas, then we’ll talk.
