New Study Shows Support for Gun Control Has Dropped to Lowest Point Since 2016

(RightWing.org) – Many Democrats will be hoping for a Biden presidency so they can go back to trying to disarm the American people – but, increasingly, those people are turning away from the whole idea of gun control. With gun sales at record highs, it seems the anti-Second Amendment campaign is running out of steam.

A Gallup poll released on November 16 shows that support for more gun control is at its lowest in four years, and down 7% from the same time last year. There’s also been a rise in the number of people who want less strict gun laws.

Attitudes regarding gun control have become a highly partisan issue, with almost 80% of Republicans opposed to tougher laws while 85% of Democrats support them. Opposition to gun control is also higher among men, in rural areas, and the Midwest and South.

Gallup’s analysts think several factors account for the increase in 2A support: The decline in high-profile shootings, civil unrest caused by far-left rioters, and the coronavirus epidemic.

Whatever the reason, this is good news for 2A supporters.
