I really don’t know if I can trust the assertion that support for gun control is up. I say that only because of the source CNN; they’ve been somewhat 'creative ’ with the truth for years. Outside of Hillary’s ‘persisted’ base, I doubt support is all that high.
I believe it’s time for some gun control, but there are two roadblocks:
Law abiding citizens still fear gangs more than the lone nut job.
Those pushing gun control never talk about limited gun control, and routinely express their desire to ban all guns.
