Shockingly, Only 28% Trust Los Federales To Enforce Gun Laws Fairly

Yet another bad poll for anti-2nd Amendment nuts, and the 28% thing is not even the worst part

(Rasmussen) Supporters of additional gun control generally consider the National Rifle Association their biggest problem, but voter distrust of the federal government remains a big hurdle for them to clear.

Just 28% of American Adults trust the federal government to fairly enforce gun control laws. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% don’t trust the government when it comes to administering these laws. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

I wonder what would possibly give citizens the idea that the federal government is less than trustworthy? The fact that no one was punished for Operation Fast and Furious, and that Team Obama stonewalled for years, and we still do not know all the details, might be one clue.

But just one-in-three Americans (32%) now think stricter gun control laws will decrease violent crime, down eight points from 40% in the 2013 survey. Fifteen percent (15%) say tougher anti-gun laws will increase violent crime, while 47% say they will have no impact.

Huh. So, the majority think more gun laws on law abiding citizens won’t actually reduce violent crimes. Which are already illegal.

Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and 59% of those not affiliated with either major party do not trust the federal government to fairly administer gun control laws. Democrats, however, are evenly divided on the question. Most Republicans (57%) and unaffiliateds (52%) say stricter gun laws will have no effect on violent crime, but 52% of Democrats think they will reduce such crime.

So, even the best Democrats can do with the question “Do you trust the government to fairly enforce gun control laws?” is 50%. This spreading awareness and angry man campaign by Obama and the Dems doesn’t seem to be working out too well. Which makes an article like this by Rebecca Leber at the New Republic even funnier

Gun Control Can Swing the 2016 Election

Gun violence was always going to play a bigger role in 2016 than it has in any election in recent memory simply because of its sheer, in-your-face relevance: The nation can’t seem to go a week without a horrific shooting. But now that President Obama has taken action to bolster background checks and come out swinging against the National Rifle Association, joined by the leading Democratic presidential contenders, gun control has the potential to be the deciding issue of 2016. And it’s Democrats, for a change, who stand to benefit.

Yet, virtually every single poll goes against the gun grabby policies of Democrats. I suggest they make this a big theme, see how far it takes them. If they were willing to offer real common sense solutions, it would work well. But, since most do not trust the government, and most understand that if you give Democrats and inch they’ll take way more than the proverbial mile, it won’t help them except with their own hardcore base.

    This is what will happen under Obama’s rules, people who are law abiding and have no intention of using a gun other than for defense will find that they can’t. The reasons will be many, but consider this, you get a handful of pain pills for your strained back, can’t get a gun or ammunition. You have a spat with your wife or family or you feel a bit of pressure from the horrible world we have from Obama and the likes of Jeff and John, you go to your doctor for help, bang, you can’t buy that hunting rifle you long for. You see a shrink for help in dealing with life, can’t get a gun or ammunition. The list goes on. Then once this pattern is noted by the brain dead citizens of the US, they will stop going to get the help they need or will lie to their doctors about symptoms. I guess that would help to reduce to cost of medical care, much like Obamacare that does not pay for anything.

    If Obama “really wanted to make America safer, he’d pick up the phone and tell his Justice Department to flip Chicago upside down until every criminal with a gun, criminal gangbanger with a gun and drug dealer with a gun is arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned to the fullest extent of the law.

    “That would make a difference, that would save lives. But he’s had seven long years to issue that order and he has failed and that is why Americans don’t trust the president.”

    Recent congressional efforts to tighten gaps in the U.S. visa waiver program were blocked by the Obama administration out of fear the counter-terror effort would upset Iran, which opposes the reform to the visa process, according to a letter sent by a delegation of leading senators to Secretary of State John Kerry.

    Thanks obama.
