I do not think that public opinion is in favor of “gun-control”. It is more baffling to think that the public would support the current administrations rhetorical response to recent tragedies, not to mention the absurd weapons ban proposed by Diane Feinstein.
Over the past few years there have been a few major shootings that have received a lot of public attention and media buzz. Tuscon, Newtown, and the Aurora Colorado movie theatre shooting have all stirred up a lot of controversy surrounding gun-control. These are all terrible tragedies and I do not want to sound insensitive, but the legislation proposed to fix the problem is not going to do anything but piss off and demonize the large majority of law-abiding gun owners. There needs to be a larger focus on mental health care and an enforcement of current regulation.
