Where does Nanny Bloomberg get his stats?

He says 90% of citizens want gun control. I have not seen anything legitimate that proves this.

The majority of citizens didn't want the ACA, but that didn't stop them from not reading it and passing it anyway.

  • You can take any poll and come up with any answer you want. It's all in how you ask the questions. If you ask which of the following do you prefer A. Bullet to the head, B. Bullet to the heart or C. Bullet to the gut you are going to choose one. You most likely would want to say D none of the above but that's not an option.

    If you ask people if they want gun control as a yes or no question most will say yes. However that yes may mean enforce the laws we have now and not make more laws.

    It's all in how and what you ask. Also it's where you ask the question. If you ask this question in Sandy Hook you'll get more to say more control. If you would ask someone in WY they will tell you less. They're all made to say what you want them to say.

    Now if they had asked 100,000 people from all across the US and 90,000 of them said more gun control laws it might have more teeth to it. 1,000 is nothing.

  • "Bonjour!"

    It's probably a skewed statistic. Ninety percent of Americans might be in favor of *some form* of gun control--have to be eighteen or twenty-one, can't get a gun legally if you're certifiably insane or have committed violent felonies, waiting periods, ban on fully automatic weapons, that kind of stuff. But then he makes it sound like 90 percent of them are in favor of much stiffer gun control, to suit his agenda.

    Yep, because Gallup did a poll of 1005 adults the week of April 7th and gun control was important to 4%. The economy and jobs were much more important.

  • Don't come on here then if we're so stupid, Anon. You can live in your bubble where criminals follow gun control laws and Skittles grow from trees.

  • Bloomberg states polls reveal 90% of people want background checks at gun shows. I know most of you don't believe polls. What does that say about some of you. (anon)

    Like baconbits said, you can get polls, stats and research studies to say anything you want them to. If you have an agenda you skew your questions and your target audience to get the results you want. THAT is why I don't believe in polls and other crap like that. So what does believing in them say about YOU?

  • Bloomberg states polls reveal 90% of people want background checks at gun shows. I know most of you don't believe polls. What does that say about some of you. Just remember you didn't believe Obama would win in 2008 and definitely not in 2012. If my memory serves me correctly some of you preferred Mickey Mouse. I think many of you are out of touch with main stream America.Please take notice how many cafemoms have left P&C debates. Its a waste of time debating with people who are out of touch with reality. Have fun chatting with each other. This group is good for a LAUGH :-) during a few brief moments in time.
