While we have heard much during this presidential campaign about the need for much stricter gun laws, a recent poll from Chapman University seems to show that Americans fear gun control, Obamacare, and tornadoes far more than they fear the next mass shootings occurring. In fact, the poll shows that Americans are more fearful of reptiles and extinction than of gun crime. The poll–released October 11–shows that “corrupt government officials” are Americans’ greatest fear. That is followed by a “terror attack, not having enough money for the future, and terrorism.” Fifth on the list of things that scare Americans most are “government restrictions on firearms and ammunition.” And you have to go a long way down the list–yes, past Obamacare, reptiles, tornadoes, and even the threat of extinction–before you finally get to fear of a mass shooting or other crimes committed with a gun.
Here are some of the other things people fear more than mass shootings:
- People I love dying
- Economic/financial collapse
- Identity theft
- People I love becoming seriously ill
- Biological warfare
- Government tracking of personal data
- High medical bills
- The US will be involved in another world war
- Global warming and climate change
- Nuclear weapons attack
- Being hit by a drunk driver
- Pollution of oceans, rivers and lakes
- Pandemic or major epidemic
- Corporate tracking of personal information
- Pollution of drinking water
After pollution, Americans fear “break-ins”–and although break-ins do not require a gun, they represent the first thing on the list that could involve one. Following break-ins, Americans fear “widespread civil unrest” and “nuclear accident/meltdown.” And then, finally, a “random/mass shooting.” Think about it, “Corrupt government officials” are Americans’ number one fear, gun control is number five, and way down on the list–at number 30–is fear of a mass shooting. Such a list is encouraging, because it indicates that Americans have yet to buy into the left’s relentless talk about how unsafe America is and how desperately Americans need government to come save them. And I would argue that this poll also provides to those who are having a difficult time deciding whom to vote for, or those thinking about just staying home, one less reason to vote for Hitlery and a little incentive to get out and vote.
And I think it would be safe to say that if we’re going to be genuinely serious about our attempt to stop gun violence, then what needs to be done is really relatively simple. Because, you see, all we really need to do is to completely disarm all Democrats. And why is it that I say that? Well, because: Ft Hood Shooter – Registered Democrat. Columbine – both families were progressive liberal Democrats. Virginia Tech Shooter – Registered Democrat – Wrote hate mail to Bush. Connecticut School Shooter – Registered Democrat; hated Christians. Colorado Theater Shooter – progressive liberal Democrat; staff worker for the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street! It all seems pretty cut and dry to me. So there you go, disarm the Democrats and our problem is solved. And it would also make it much easier to identify those with mental issues if were to simply check to see who it is that’s a registered Democrat.
So now that it’s been confirmed that Americans fear big government more than they fear domestic terrorist attackers I think we had best be prepared for even more contrived terrorist attacks in America because that is what D.C. wants us to do so they can have justification to take away more of our freedoms in the name of “national security”. They need crime and violence with a deafening discrimination campaign echoing through the state-controlled media in an attempt to justify even more gun control schemes! They now have less than 30 days to try to stage something to backdrop behind Hitlery and her pledge to restrict gun rights. Everyone needs to keep their powder dry and to be vigilant! And take someone shooting for their first time! We as a nation are better than the screw ups in the Democrat Party and their many willing accomplices in the state-controlled media!! Our country needs us as it has never needed us before!
