Poll: Americans, Especially Young Ones, Say People “Should Be Allowed” to Own Assault Weapons

The recent Reason-Rupe poll finds a slim majority of Americans favor allowing private ownership of assault weapons, 44 percent say Americans should be prohibited from owning these types of firearms. Support is drawn down partisan lines with 68 percent of Republicans opposing an assault weapons ban and 62 percent of Democrats in support of such a ban. Independents tend to agree with Republicans with 57 to 37 percent.

A slim majority … I’ll take it nonetheless.

We have work to do, but America is by no means finished yet.

You see the spin, in this poll. It stems from, mot teaching history, the truth.
