If you listen to most media outlets you would think that only right wingers or extreme right wingers think we should be able to own and carry guns. But, this surprising poll from MSNBC – yes, MSNBC – shows that is not the case. I would bet the person who suggested this poll, was expecting very different results…..
A poll, hosted on MSNBC.com, asked a simple question:
People were given three options for answering and, with 90,000+ votes cast, here are the current numbers (as of July 6, 2014):
- 88% – Yes! The Second Amendment guarantees it. (79,000+ votes)
- 8% – No, it’s too dangerous. (7.266 votes)
- 4% – Only for self defense. (3,636 votes)
This result does not fit in with the network’s leftist narrative or agenda. To listen to MSNBC you would think that 90% of Americans are begging to turn in their guns so that they can receive the proper state protection.
