Do more guns = less gun control support? http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytime...and-2014-will-there-be-an-electoral-price/?hp Our president, who sometimes gets a bit careless when it come to spouting off numbers, has often stated that “90 percent of the people support universal background checks.” “How,” he expounds, “can any senator vote against a proposal that has so high a percentage of public support?” Well for one thing the stated percentage may be questionable, but it could happen depending on how the questions were framed, and in what areas the poll was taken. Obviously polls can be made to get any preconceived result. Which brings us to the above-cited article, which looks into the question of how various senators voted vs. the percentage of gun ownership within the state they represent. The results are interesting, and go along way toward showing what exactly influences a legislator’s vote. The bottom line that I took away is that regardless of what state one resides in, the more people we pull in to the gun ownership community the better, and I find current conditions in the retail sector to be very encouraging. Now we need to capture those folks and make them true believers.
