Americans Certify Second Amendment, Divided Over Gun Laws


A majority of respondents endorse the “shall-issue” prerogative to deal with the question of concealed carry.

Most people in the United States agree on the meaning of the Second Amendment, and half endorse the “shall-issue” prerogative to carry concealed weapons in public, a new Angus Reid Public Opinion poll has found.

In the online survey of a representative national sample of 1,009 American adults, 85 per cent of respondents believe that the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution means that individuals have the right to keep and bear arms, while only seven per cent openly disagree with this view.

The interpretation of the Second Amendment is similar across party lines and among both gun owners and people who do not possess a firearm.

Americans are split when assessing existing federal regulations related to firearm ownership, with 44 per cent saying they are satisfied with these guidelines, and 44 per cent voicing dissatisfaction.

Republicans (52%), Independents (47%) and gun owners (54%) are more likely to say they are satisfied with the status quo, while Democrats (46%) and those who do not own a gun (47%) are more likely to be dissatisfied.”

Dell’s Bottom Line:

You’ve probably heard the news.  The sale of firearms - especially weapons designed for home and self-protection - has skyrocketed over the past couple of years.  This past Christmas showed a marked increase in the purchase of weapons such at the pictured Ruger LC-9, semi-automatic pistol.  And thousands of women are actively involved in the ownership, training and use of such weapons.

This blog strongly supports the Second Amendment Right to keep and bear arms.  However, I also encourage you to do so responsibly.  Seek out professional training and get to ‘know’ your firearm...and then practice, practice, practice.

Just knowing that you’re a firearms enthusiast will instantly drop you and your property far down the list for potential criminals.

Remember:  “When seconds count, the police are just 20 minutes away”.
