According to a Gallup Poll, most Americans simply don’t think gun control is a pressing issue.

The White House likes to keep bringing up a questionable stat that says 90% of the country supports stricter background checks. Even if that number were true, apparently very few Americans actually think the issue is important.

In the poll, respondents were asked what they thought the most important issues in the country were. Only 4% listed gun control as important.

As to be expected, the economy and unemployment topped the charts.

Here is the full break down:

Economy in general 24%


Dissatisfaction with Government16%

Federal budget deficit/Federal debt 11%


Ethical/Moral/Family decline5%

Immigration/Illegal aliens 4%


Guns/Gun control 4%

Situation with North Korea4%

Lack of Money 3%

Welfare 2%

Lack of respect for each other 2%


Foreign aid/Focus overseas2%

Taxes 2%
