New Poll Reveals What We Already Knew

To wit, the majority of Americans — with the exception of the troop of performing monkeys at Brady and Jodie Foster — think gun control is a crock of rhino dookey:
A recent Zogby International poll question conducted for Associated Television News found that 66% of the American voting public in a recent poll of 1,020 Americans from August 8-11, 2007 (margin of error of +/- 3.1%) found that the American public rejects the notion that new gun control laws are needed.
[...]
A majority of voters who support enforcement of gun laws already on the books exists virtually across all demographic groups and in all regions of the country with the only exception being Asian and liberal voters.
Is Jodie Foster Asian? Alien? Inquiring minds, etc.

Our lax gun control laws have enabled dealers to flood urban areas with. How can making it easier for, say, malicious crack kingpins to get their hands on guns be a step in the right direction? I argue in my op-ed on the Huffington Posttoday that while the way to get to the root of most social problems is to provide economic opportunity, it’s foolish to repeal gun control laws. Check it out hereand please share your comments.

Zach, Lax compared to what? I wonder if you hate the NSA phone captures due to invasion of privacy...if so why aren't you worried about the invasion of privacy that law abiding citizens have to go through to purchase a legal item?

Gun laws prevent the supply of illegal guns? The same way drug laws prevent the supply of illegal drugs? Prohibition and regulation only strengthen the black market.

As an aside, it befuddles me that someone like Zach can be so strongly in favor of something, like the Brady AWB, without having the faintest understanding of what it is or what it does. Zach, can you explain the difference between a pre-ban AK or Mini-14 and the same guns under the ban?

Zach,
With all do respect to your comments: It is not even debatable that the solution to most social problems IS NOT economic opportunity. If it were true, as idealists wish it to be, then how do you explain all of the dirt-poor people that are kind, courteous and law-abiding. My roots are in poverty, but at no time was crime, violence and all of the other social "ills" justified by that. We were taught by, News-Flash: PARENTS and GRANDPARNETS to be first of all honest and then hard-working. You make your own good fortune, even under poor economic conditions. That's how I got "mine". How about you?

I wish to clarify my words in my last note commenting on Zach's note.
I meant to say that if the basis for most social ills is the lack of economic opportunity, then how do you explain all of the honest and hard working poor people?

If economic deprivation causes crime, the Great Depression would have been an anarchic killzone. You'll have to do better than that.
