That’s right, a FOX NEWS poll!

Courtesy of The Hill:

The majority of Americans support a ban on assault weapons in the wake of two recent mass shootings that killed a total of 31 people, a new Fox News poll found.

Two-thirds of Americans favor a ban on assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons as a measure to reduce gun violence, according to a poll released Wednesday. It is a 7-point increase from when the question was asked in March 2018.

Support for an assault weapons ban is stronger among Democrats, at 86 percent, based on the poll. Forty-six percent of Republicans and 58 percent of independents said they are in favor of a ban.

An overwhelming 90 percent of Americans support requiring criminal background checks on all gun buyers, based on the poll. The support is statistically equal between Democrats and Republicans.

That my friends is what you call a consensus.

And yet #MoscowMitch continues to block any gun control legislation from reaching the Senate floor. 

And that my friends is what you call political malpractice. 

It is time for Mitch to go!

    Guns are not sexy. Compassion is.

    In his first speech after the Texas and Ohio shootings, Trump said, “Mental illness and hatred pull the trigger ― not the gun.”

    Leaked Document Blows The Lid Off GOP Strategy To Blame The Left For Mass Shootings

    ….Republicans Are Lying To The Country About Gun Violence

    The NRA/GOP position is both wildly unpopular and totally unsustainable, so Republicans aren’t trying to defend their policy of giving white supremacist mass shooters easy access to high capacity weapons. Instead, the GOP is lying to America about who is behind the violence and what can be done.

    Forget about dealing with the problem of mass shootings, Republicans refuse to confront the facts of the problem.

    Time is running out on Republicans. The impact of each mass shooting is creating a cumulative effect of pushing the country toward stronger action on guns and gun violence. Republican lies aren’t fooling anyone, as they are only costing more people their lives, and delaying the inevitable policy response to mass shootings and gun violence.

    Officials at an Ohio elementary school were shocked to learn that a gun stored on campus was found by two first-grade students who picked it up and removed it from its case, The Columbus Dispatch reports.

    …..According to reports, transportation director Vicky Nelson, who was trained as part of the district’s concealed carry program and allowed to have a gun on school grounds, left her firearm in an unlocked case as she went to the restroom. Also in the office was her grandson and the daughter of a co-worker, who were both first graders. When she returned from the restroom, she saw that the gun had been taken out of its case and left on the desk.
