SURVEY: 74% of Millennials Don’t Trust Trump with Gun Control Policy. How do we know their 1155 opt-in respondents were millennials? Quite simply we don’t.
But we do know that the headline stat could very well include pro-gun folk who don’t trust Trump (or anyone else) with gun control policy. (Like you?) And we sure don’t expect a skeptical, common sense analysis of this urban-skewed survey from the anti-gun press. Here’s nypost.com‘s take on the stats . . .
The vast majority of people ages 18 to 35 in the US believe the country has a major problem with mass shootings and most support laws addressing the issue, according to a new survey of 1,155 number people from millennial-focused apartment listing site Abodo.
Some 78 percent of millennials believe it is too easy to purchase a gun and 59 percent believe that gun violence would decrease if gun regulations were strengthened.
And now a word from the NRA questioning the validity of the study, highlighting the uselessness of gun control laws. No, wait. Sorry. I meant here’s what The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence had to say about that.
The generational divide in support of gun control could be due to the prevalence of gun violence in the lives of millennials, said Kris Brown, co-president of anti-gun violence nonprofit the Brady Campaign. From the Columbine High School massacre in 1999 to the prevalence shootings in 2017, millennials have been surrounded by gun violence for most of their lives.
“They are rightly saying this is wrong, I live in America and if we say we are such a great nation, why is this not an issue worth solving?” Brown said.
If we say we’re such a great nation? The antis’ “America sucks” masks slips!
Anyway, the Post included the following pro-Second Amendment stat — even though Post scribe Kari Paul felt obliged to let the Brady’s spinmeister put millennials’ 2A support into “proper’ perspective.
Still, that doesn’t mean millennials are against banning firearms entirely: 67 percent of millennials surveyed by Abodo support the Second Amendment in some capacity and only 3 percent said they would endorse repealing it “tomorrow.” Brown said this reflects the views of many in the US — including advocates for gun control, who endorse regulation rather than outright bans.
Because if gun control advocates told the public what they really, really want, they’d lose all credibility. God forbid.
