NBC just ran a poll they probably wish they could take back.
Despite the national kerfuffle over gun control in the wake of Parkland, Americans don’t seem to be much deterred from the idea that guns prevent bad people from doing bad stuff.
The poll showed nearly 60 percent of Americans believe legal gun owners help make the country safer.
What’s even more surprising is that that number represents a radical change from twenty years ago when well over half of Americans believed just the opposite.
In other words, the radical gun-control agenda isn’t working all that well.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
Nearly six in 10 American adults believe citizen gun ownership does more to improve public safety because it allows law-abiding people to protect themselves in case of danger, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Friday.
The March 10-14 survey found 58 percent of people think legal gun owners help make the country a safer place compared to 38 percent who think the chance for accidental misuse of firearms is connected to more people having them.
Over the past two decades since the 1999 Columbine massacre, the public’s beliefs on gun ownership and safety have dramatically changed.
Back then, 52 percent of people said higher gun ownership levels correlated with lower levels of safety.
