A new poll finds Americans believe restrictions on gun ownership are fueling rising crime, and even Democrats agree gun control has failed.

The Trafalgar Group poll found 37.3 percent of likely voters believed strict gun laws in major cities were making a wave of thefts and organized shoplifting worse. 

Only 15.6 percent believed gun control was helping prevent the robberies, while 47.1 percent believed criminals didn’t care about gun laws either way.

Even among voters the media claim support gun control, support was hard to find.

Among Democrats, only 30.1 percent believed gun control was helping prevent crime.  16.1 percent of Democrats believed gun control was making crime worse, and 53.8 percent of Democrats said gun control was having no effect.

Among political independents, only 9.8 percent said gun control was preventing crime whilw 39.5 percent said gun control was making crime worse. 50.7 percent said gun control was doing nothing.

Black voters were even more skeptical of gun control than white voters.  Only 10.8 percent of black voters said gun control was helping, compared to just 14.8 percent of whites.

Women also said gun control was more likely to hurt than help, with 34.3 percent of women saying anti-gun laws were making crime worse and just 18.7 percent saying gun bans help.

Afroyim v Rusk 18LED 2D (757) SCOTUS decision. 
All persons born or naturalized in the United States … are citizens of the United States….” There is no indication in these words of a fleeting citizenship, good at the moment it is acquired but subject to destruction by the Government at any time. Rather the Amendment can most reasonably be read as defining a citizenship which a citizen keeps unless he voluntarily relinquishes it. Once acquired, this Fourteenth Amendment citizenship was not to be shifted, canceled, or diluted at the will of the Federal Government, the States, or any other governmental unit.[62][63]
——Citizen:A person with ALL rights… Blacks law dictionary. ————-
If you do not have the right to own a firearm, you are not a citizen…

Guns do not kill people, but evil people kill people. What we need is evil control or extermination of evil.

Here’s a Fun Fact that the media chooses not to mention. The original “gun control” laws passed after the War of Northern Aggression were intended to deny blacks the ability possess firearms. These laws were passed by the party whose members formed the KKK. The other party is the one that freed those former slaves.

Despite these indisputable facts, the descendants of those freed slaves actually vote FOR those Damnocrats who have enslaved them once again via all the Socialist give-away programs.
