Not so.

"...when asked whether allowing citizens to own assault weapons makes the country safer or more dangerous, Americans by more than 2-to-1 said more dangerous.

I have been reading that your DHS this year alone has been buying 1.2 billions rounds of ammo, inc. 450 million hollow point bullets, etc..why is there no body wanting to talk about what is going on there.

Listen people, wake up! They want your guns because guns in the hands of citizens protectes us from tyranny. When you give up your guns, you have sold your soul to the devil. America would turn into North Korea faster than your heads could spin. Learn some history.

Every dictator in history had to disarm the citizens before he could have his way with them.

We want a credible source!!!!!

A 2002 study by Jim A. Kuypers of Dartmouth College, Press Bias and Politics, investigated the issue of media bias. In this study of 116 mainstream US papers, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle, Kuypers stated that the mainstream press in America tends to favor liberal viewpoints. They argued that reporters who they thought were expressing moderate or conservative points of view were often labeled as holding a minority point of view. Kuypers said he found liberal bias in reporting a variety of issues including race, welfare reform, environmental protection, and gun control.

Obammy's sista, cuzzz, brotha's, killed more people this year then 10 Newtown incidents, why didn't the primate call for action.

When a drug dealing thief was shot because he attacked a man who was sick of his neighborhood being victimized by A P E S, he said the little A P E could have been his son.

Thank God the media makes these savages out to look human.

Very true because liberals support socialism and communism. It is hard to take people's rights and violate them when they can defend themselves.

Sorry Reseacher, your source is not from the AP or Reuters, so according to your previous statements, it's not a credible source.

BUT...I did find this part interesting;

"That historical pattern reflects the stark partisan divide on the issue. Among Democrats, 72% in the new Pew survey said they put their priority on controlling gun ownership, while only 20% sided with protecting gun rights. Among Republicans, the division was the reverse, 27% to 69%. About one-third of Americans say they have a gun at home. Among Republicans, almost half say so, while among Democrats, only one-quarter do."

So much for politicians that will abide by their oath of office huh..? I'm sick and damn tired of politicians that take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of The United States, then do whatever they can to cherry pick and destroy parts they don't like.

I will support and defend ALL of the rights of the people, including yours to disagree.
