Nearly two-thirds of Americans say they believe the Constitution guarantees each person the right to own a gun, according to a poll released Sunday.
In all, 65 percent said they thought the Constitution ensures that right, and 31 percent said it did not. The question had a sampling error of plus-or-minus 3 points.
I am shocked. Shocked I say. The Constitution guaranteeing individual liberties? Say it ain’t so!
In all seriousness, it’s not really too much of a surprise. We have known for quite some time that “gun control” is a minority agenda item; it’s not really something that most folks believe it. I will confess that it’s fun to have statistics to toss around when people like Paul Helmke say that the “majority of America supports tougher gun laws”.
