Gallup: Over 70% Favor Guns For All

Gallup: Over 70% Favor Guns For All


A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

To the question of whether or not the 2nd amendment guarantees gun rights for all or just members of state militias…it’s not even close.

And even among people who don’t own guns, like myself, it’s still not even close…

However, a majority favor more restrictions on guns…
More Restrictions – 49%
Stay The Same – 38%
Fewer Restrictions – 11%

Basically, the 2nd amendment ship has sailed, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t in favor of making sure that guns don’t get into the wrong hands.

  • Rich

    I think your headline is misleading.

    I seriously doubt that 73% of Americans think the 2nd Amendment guarantees the right for ALL citizens to own guns, including felons, mentally ill persons, etc. I suspect that 73% are fine with the average law-abiding citizen to own a gun, if they wish.

  • Jimmy the Dhimmi

    Barack Obama is such a uniter, that he favors both positions. Here is video of Barack Obama claiming the DC gun ban was unconstitutional, and also affirming his belief that the DC gun ban was constitutional after all.

  • Right Democrat

    Supporting gun control is not only misguided public policy but bad politics. The Democratic Party needs to embrace the Second Amendment and affirm the right to keep and bear arms in the party platform. With gun control off the table, Democrats could become competitive again in a number of red states.
