View Diary: Connecticut's tough new gun law isn't the only one, but most new laws are loosening firearms rules (97 comments)

  •  MB already debunked the CNN/CBS numbers, (13+ / 0-)

    but you already know that.  Again, if you poll using vague dog whistle terms like "gun control" and "confiscation" the numbers go lower.  And that's a common phenomenon on a wide variety of political issues beyond just guns.  But poll specific policy objectives of gun safety regulation, and the support goes sky high.  Guess which type of poll is more meaningful.

      'debunk' the CBS poll. He didn't even disagree with the CBS poll.
      He merely explained why he didn't prefer the more general poll about "gun control", as much as he prefers the more specific policy questions.
      That isn't a 'debunking' that is a 'preference'.

      I disagree, somehow I find polls asking about 'gun control' to be useful when ascertaining the public's attitude about 'gun control'......particularly when the exact same question was asked.

      Same question, 10 points less.
      Denying that the polls are showing a waning of support for gun control is simply willful blindness.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
