Sen. Bill Nelson’s poll on weapons ban conflicts with White House ‘consensus’

Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that while he had not finalized his recommendations on curbing gun violence, which he plans to deliver to President Obama by Tuesday, a consensus was emerging over banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines as well as tightening background checks.

Biden said the White House is determined to act quickly to curb gun violence and will explore all avenues – including executive orders that would not require approval by Congress.

As for this “consensus”, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson has a poll up on his web site that asks; ‘Would you favor reinstating the federal assault weapons ban that expired in 2004?’

And wouldn’t you know it, Biden is right about a consensus emerging…

The problem is, it is not a consensus in favor of the ideological agenda being pursued by Obama and the Far Left.  While not scientific, the poll results indicate an overwhelming sentiment not to initiate a federal assault weapons ban.

    It won't matter what we say or do The man in charge will pass something in the line of gun restrictions to set up futher gun control. Remember guns are also for protection against tyranical governments. Which this one would like to be ( Dictator)

      A tyanical government in America would have occured 200 years ago. The govenments fire power out weighs American citizens weapons. To even refer to the government as tryanical is an out dated analogy

      • A. Weaver

        The government's fire power as it lies without operators very much outweighs the citizen's, so you are correct in a sense. However, to get enough useful idiots in the military and in states and local governments to come against their fellow citizens is a whole other matter.

    I cannot believe anybody is naive enough to think a bunch of angry citizens can fight off the federal government in some imaginary uprising!
