If you take the time to roll around the Brady Campaign’s website, or if you’ve ever had the misfortune to talk to one of their members, I’m sure you’ve heard or read the statement they’re fond of tossing around about how “a majority of Americans” favor “tougher gun laws”.

Unfortunately, like so many of their other statements, it is just not true.

A recent Zogby International poll question conducted for Associated Television News found that 66% of the American voting public in a recent poll of 1,020 Americans from August 8-11, 2007 (margin of error of +/- 3.1%) rejects the notion that new gun control laws are needed.

Shockingly enough for the gun grabbers, most of this sample of Americans actually believe that we have enough gun laws on the books, and we should probably just enforce the existing laws!

Truly shocking.
