CNN Poll: Bare Majority Now Support Major Gun Restrictions Political Ticker Blogs
Washington (CNN) - Americans are reacting to the tragic events in Newtown, Connecticut with elevated levels of anger, shock and fear that have led a growing number of people to look for action from the government and society that can prevent future incidents, according to a new national survey.
If we focus on this particular mass shooting- One simple easy thing would have stopped it cold. If the guns had been very well secured. In a safe with only the owner having the combination. If they had been partly disassembled and locked with the bolt or firing pins locked away.
Hopefully I have indicated enough support for some gun control legislation this will be taken in that context.
If I were a Senator like Diane Feinstein, that would be my first bill. Even knowing a blanket assault weapon bill might be better personal elective politics. The problem people like the Senator from California who don’t like guns much in our hands have with gun safes is well, they have guns in them. Often lots of long ones.
But the political and practical advantage of a bill like that Safe Storage Edict is it would actually get the support of the NRA, GOAA, NSSF etc. Practically no opposition.
