POLL: ABC News Gun Control


A new ABC News national survey (story, results) of 788 adults (conducted last night, 4/22) finds:

  • 61% of Americans favor stricter gun control laws in this country; 36% oppose.
  • 67% favor a ban on assault weapons, while 38% favor a ban on the sale of handguns except to law officers

J.P. Moore:

Your poll is obviously skewed by a someone's socialistic or totalitarian influenced agenda. I cut and pasted the results (below) from an ABC news poll right around the time that the VA Tech murders happened. I also made sure to share these results with everyone I encounter who claims to be a registered democrat. Coincidently, ABC news never posted or spoke of these results on the airways. Is it because the poll did not coincide with ABC News' viewpoint? The Nazis had similar media tactics and deliberately omitted items not matching their agenda. Please explain why ABC news projects this negativity to our Bill of Rights as laid out in the U.S. Constitution.

Copied from ABC News website:
There are at least 32 confirmed dead in the shooting at Virginia Tech University, making it the worst campus shooting in American history. Law enforcement officials believe the gunman was firing at least one 9mm semi-automatic pistol.Do you think this incident is a reason to pass stricter gun control legislation?

No. Violent shootings are isolated incidents and it's irresponsible to link them to gun control.

76.3 % (90,852)

Yes. This shows the violence that can occur when someone has access to handguns.

22.0 % (26,247)

I'm not sure. I need more information.

1.7 % (2,022)

Total Vote: 119,121

Not a scientific survey.
