Rasmussen Poll: Majority of Americans Don’t Believe Gun Control Measures Will Prevent Mass Shootings

A new Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 likely U.S. voters revealed that a majority do not believe that stricter gun control laws will prevent mass shootings.

In a national telephone and online survey released on April 14th in the wake of a mass shooting on a Brooklyn subway, Rasmussen Reports revealed that 51 percent of those surveyed do not believe that stricter gun control laws would have prevented such mass shootings from occurring.

Thirty-eight percent of those surveyed by Rasmussen Reports believe that stricter gun control measures would help, while 11 percent were unsure.

When conducting their survey, Rasmussen Reports asked three questions of likely voters:

“1* Does the United States need stricter gun control laws?

 “2* Would stricter gun control laws help prevent shootings like the recent one in Brooklyn, New York?

 “3* Is it possible to completely prevent mass shootings like the one in Brooklyn?”

Rasmussen Reports gave the margin of error at +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.

“These findings are virtually identical to a March 2021 survey when President Joe Biden called for new gun control measures in the aftermath of two mass shootings,” Rasmussen Reports wrote.

The survey was conducted on April 12th and 13th after a mass shooting that occurred just before 8:30 a.m. aboard a Manhattan-bound N Subway, according to ABC News.

Frank James, 62, allegedly boarded the train, donned a gas mask, detonated a smoke , and then pulled a handgun and began firing, injuring 29 people, including 10 with gunshot wounds and the rest sustaining injuries due to smoke inhalation.

OUR TAKE

With all the disturbing trends of the past two years, one of the few positives has been Americans seeing through the gun control propaganda.

Maybe they’ve realized that the voices calling for gun control are the same ones that were cheering on the violent rioters that caused billions of dollars in damages nationwide?

Or they see that these same gun control advocates have called for the release of tens of thousands of criminals onto the streets in radical new bail reform initiatives — all while demanded that police departments across the country be defunded and disbanded?

Whatever the cause, we love to see it.
