Looks pretty solid to me. I'm eager to see how many in Congress lay their heads on the chooping block by voting against these kind of support numbers.

i think poll is misleading if you noticed they asked the same question back to back and got 2 different answer.

would also like to know how many dem and rep they asked.

then, lets say that they get a back on assault weapons, then a week or two later we have another mass murder what do we do then?

16 Things About 2013 That Are Really Going To Stink

NBC
Obama Administration
The beginning of the year has traditionally been a time of optimism when we all look forward to the exciting things that are going to happen over the next 12 months. Unfortunately, there are a whole bunch of things about 2013 that we already know are going to stink. Taxes are going to go up, good paying jobs will continue to leave the country, small businesses will continue to be destroyed, the number of Americans living in poverty will continue to soar, our infrastructure will continue to decay, global food supplies will likely continue to dwindle and the U.S. national debt will continue to explode.

Our politicians continue to pursue the same policies that got us into this mess, and yet they continue to expect things to magically turn around. But that is not the way that things work in the real world. Bad decisions lead to bad outcomes. Instead of realizing that what we are doing is not working, our “leaders” continue to give us more of the same. As a result, there are going to be a lot of things about 2013 that will not be great. Sticking our heads in the sand and pretending that everything will be “okay” somehow is not going to help anyone. We’ve got to make people understand exactly what is happening and why it is happening if we ever hope to see real changes.

The following are 16 things about 2013 that are really going to stink...

#1 Taxes Are Going To Go Up

#2 The Middle Class Is About To Be Scorched By The Alternative Minimum Tax

#3 The Economy Will Continue To Get Worse

#4 Good Paying Jobs Will Continue To Be Shipped Out Of The United States

#5 Small Businesses Will Continue To Be Destroyed

#6 Hunger And Poverty Will Continue To Explode To Unprecedented Levels

#7 The Number Of Americans On Food Stamps Will Continue To Increase

#8 Millions Of Americans Are About To Lose Their Unemployment Benefits

#9 Our Infrastructure Will Continue To Rot And Decay

The United States once had the most beautiful infrastructure in the entire world. Our highways, bridges, airports, railroads, sewer systems and electrical grids were the envy of the entire planet.
Well, now we don’t even have enough money to repair what we already have, so our infrastructure will continue to rot and decay in 2013…
Highways and bridges will need $2.5 trillion in upgrades if they are to survive for another 50 years — a must-do to keep commerce thriving. And that figure doesn’t even take into account the airports, railroads, subways, sewage-treatment plants, waterworks, levees, electric grids, pipelines, and all of those other expensive systems that people ignore until they break down.

#10 Many Of Our Major Cities Will Continue To Be Transformed Into Festering Hellholes

#11 State And Local Governments Will Find Ways To Squeeze Even More Money Out Of Us

#12 Drug Cartels Will Continue To Easily Cross Our Borders And Terrorize Our Citizens

#13 Social Decay Will Continue To Accelerate

#14 Global Food Supplies Will Continue To Dwindle

#15 Wall Street Will Continue To Resemble A Giant Casino

#16 The U.S. National Debt Will Cross The 17 Trillion Dollar Mark. In 2013, our national debt will blow past the 17 trillion dollar mark and start heading toward 18 trillion dollars.

How stupid can we possibly be?

During the first four years of the Obama administration, the U.S. national debt has grown by about as much as it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that George W. Bush took office.

It really takes something to match more than 200 years of debt accumulation in less than four years.

But our politicians don’t seem to care about all of this debt. They will continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from our children and our grandchildren every single hour of every single day. That is beyond criminal, and yet the American people don’t seem to care.

What in the world has happened to this country? Obama happened.

Nope, that is my error. Sorry about that, and thanks for pointing it out.

The second of the two questions you refer to is as follows;

Q: Would you support or oppose a law requiring placing an armed guard in every school in the country?

55% support
42% oppose

Here's the link to the Washington Post / ABC Poll for more poll results -

I've heard that from a lot of sources but heard that the scum closest to him see him as a Muslim terrorist first and foremost and that his mouth is permanently attached to obummer's butt. Sad stuff.

You don't have an inalienable right to one of those menacing assault rifles.

Yeah I do. It's called the 2nd Amendment and the U.S. Supreme Court says I do in DC vs Heller and McDonald vs Chicago. Educate yourself dumbass.

In fact, the right to keep and bear arms precedes our Constitution and our government. Our Constitution merely recognizes inalienable rights that already existed at the time of its ratification.

The 2nd Amendment does not mention "gun" or "firearm" a single time. Which in turn gives lawmakers great latitude in defining just exactly what type of gun or firearm you may or may not arm yourself with. The SCOTUS ruling you're in love with also doesn't define what type of gun you may have the right to own which also gives lawmakers great latitude in making that definition too.

President Obama will be putting those menacing assault rifles on the chopping block tomorrow.

It doesn't have anything to do with what I can or can not stand. President Obama will be putting your menacing assault rifles and your mega-clips on the chopping block tomorrow morning. And there is nothing you can do to stop it.

There are a lot of talking heads out there right now. You can easily discern who is desperate and who isn't. The NRA being the most desperate by far. President Obama isn't worried about politics. Hes made that clear. He has also pledged to put the full weight of his office and position into implement ling new gun laws. Hes made that clear too. He assured the parents of those slaughtered children he would.

Tomorrow President Obama will be putting your menacing assault rifles and your mega-clips on the chopping block. If Congress doesn't act the President can certainly issue executive orders. Regardless, its going to be done.
