MSNBC Is Probably Shocked About the Results of These Second Amendment Polls on Their Website
Traditionally anti-gun MSNBC is probably feeling pretty shocked at the result of a couple of polls posted on their website.
The first poll asks “Do you think people should be allowed to carry guns in public?”
The choices and results after 69,000+ votes as of right now are:
88% – Yes! The Second Amendment guarantees it. (61k votes)
08% – No, it’s too dangerous. (5,524 votes)
04% – Only for self defense. (2,915 votes)
This poll seems to have been running since early May.
The second poll has to do with Target’s statement asking gun owners to leave their firearms at home and asks “Do you support Target’s new firearms policy?”
The choices and results after 11,000+ votes as of right now are:
75% – No, the policy infringes on Second Amendment rights (8,422 votes)
20% – Yes, Target did the right thing (2,258 votes)
05% – It’s a step in the right direction, but it’s not enough (541 votes)
This poll has been running since July 2nd.
To be fair, the Second Amendment protects individual’s right to keep and bear arms from the government. There is no constitutionally guaranteed protection from private businesses, and in fact private property rights often trump other rights in our country’s history. However, that doesn’t mean people can’t be upset about it.
Those are some pretty telling results. It should be interesting to see if MSNCB uses the results of either poll in subsequent reports. Both polls are still open.
