Americans not ready for gun bans

We all know that public opinion, as expressed through polls, doesn’t dictate political outcomes. Otherwise, Congress would be homeless and living under a bridge, dreaming about the good ol’ days before job approval ratings of 14 to 17 percent. No, polls and the public opinion they reflect don’t rule. But they do have some influence in the margins and can explain how “reform” movements like the current gun control crusade aren’t gaining the traction they desire. [cont.]
