The American people have spoken and what Americans are calling for is better enforcement of the laws that are already on the books. Two-thirds of Americans are calling for better enforcement of laws, instead of new gun laws to combat violent crime. Continue reading this story from Guns.com:

The latest Rasmussen national survey found that America’s appetite for new anti-gun laws isn’t very strong. 

The survey, conducted among 1,000 American adults at the end of January, found that, while almost two-thirds of respondents– 63 percent– believed the country needs stricter enforcement of laws that are already on the books as a way to fight violent crime, new gun restrictions aren’t welcome. 

According to Rasmussen, 49 percent of Americans think stricter gun control laws aren’t needed, while 42 percent are in favor of more gun restrictions. When broken down along self-identified party lines, 69 percent of Republicans, 53 percent of Independents, and even 28 percent of Democrats say the country does not need stricter gun laws.

“Clearly,” Second Amendment founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb told Guns.com in an email, “the American majority and Joe Biden are on different tracks. It is disappointing, but not surprising that 63 percent of Democrats want stricter gun control laws, suggesting the party may be out of touch with the majority of Americans as well.

“While such poll results get our attention because they give us and our members a detailed look at public sentiment on gun-related issues,” said Gottlieb, “the numbers also strongly suggest that Biden and the majority of his party have become the gang that couldn’t shoot straight.”
