GOP Officials Are On Wrong Side Of Gun Violence Issue
These charts were made using information contained in a new Quinnipiac University Poll -- done between February 16th and 19th of a random national sample of 1,249 voters, with a margin of error of 3.4 points.
The U.S. has had 19 school shooting in 2018, and it is averaging a mass shooting (shooting in which 4 or more are injured or killed) every day. America is waking up to the fact that something needs to be done to reduce the amount of gun violence in this country.
Unfortunately, our Congress is controlled by Republicans. Those Republicans have been bought by the NRA (through huge campaign donations), and they support the NRA policy (that no new gun laws or restrictions are needed. This is not going to help them in November, because the public disagrees. The public thinks action is needed, and 75% say Congress is not doing enough to control gun violence (and 52% say the Democrats would do a better job).
It has become obvious that NOTHING will be done about gun violence as long as the Republicans control Congress. We can fix that in November!
