No wonder we can’t get new gun control laws passed. SMH
Via NYDailyNews reports:
Think of it as an alternate definition for the term “gun control.”
Nearly half of all Republicans surveyed said they believed that “an armed revolution in order to protect liberties might be necessary in the next few years,” a new poll from Fairleigh Dickinson University found.
While 44% of registered Republican voters indicated that they believed armed rebellion would soon be a reality in the U.S., just 18% of Democrats agreed. As for Independent voters, 27% indicated that guns would soon be used to settle the country’s political problems.
The partisan gap on the question of whether armed revolution will soon play a role in America’s political history mirrors the differences in opinion on gun control. While 50% of those surveyed said that new gun control legislation was necessary to protect the public, just 24% of Republicans said new laws were needed. A whopping 73% of Democrats favored new legislation, the survey found.
It’s no secret the Republicans love their guns, but it’s downright scary that they have armed revolution on their minds. This ain’t 1776 and the British ain’t coming to strip us of our rights.
Fear Of A Black Planet is real though y’all.
