"Women (55 percent) are more likely than men (39 percent) to want stricter laws, as are those living in the Northeast. Only 44 percent in the Midwest and South want stricter laws; 47 percent in the West." CBS News Poll
As I was saying...
The political approach of the anti-gun people has been badly flawed from the beginning of their latest efforts. They don't seem capable of understanding that there are many parts of the US where increased control of firearms is not wanted and that the US is a federal republic in which legislators respond to the will of the electorate on a local level.
IMO the only gun safety laws likely to be enacted are:
- Increased input of mental health data in the background checks system.
- Gun trafficking law.
- Universal background checks so long as data is not retained on positive results and there are the right exceptions in the bill.
According to what is being reported by the Connecticutt State Police today the Lanza house contained a gun safe. if that is true then Lanza'a mother made a fatal error in letting him have access to it. Why would she do a stupid thing like that?
