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

Powered by Topple

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.
