Here in the real world, we know gun control doesn’t stop gun violence. All it does is hand a free pass to violent criminals, while stripping basic rights from law-abiding Americans.
That’s not news on the right and among Independents and Libertarians. Nevertheless, as we all know, it’s still a very fringe position on the left, a large part of which regards guns as automatically dangerous and evil.
However, a new poll from Trafalgar Group shows attitudes on the left are shifting dramatically on guns…
Shock Poll Shows Shifting Attitudes on the Left
The Trafalgar Group poll shows that 84% of people believe gun control doesn’t help cut down violent crime. This is a mix of people from all political beliefs.
Though where it gets surprising is it shows that among Democrats, a whopping 53.8% don’t believe gun control helps reduce crime and 16% believe it makes crime worse.
That’s a huge change in direction. You’re not going to see this poll talked about on the liberal media propaganda networks, but it’s very much real. Trafalgar is a respected and reputable polling organization.
This survey was conducted between Dec. 17 to 22 and fully shows 37% of people believe gun control makes violent crime worse in big cities, including the 16% of Democrats who share this view, as mentioned.
This is a big change.
Breitbart reported a recent Trafalgar Group poll showed that a majority of Democratic voters believe that strict gun control laws aren't doing anything to reduce crime. https://t.co/yLT6TJ5Gdi

Americans Are Waking Up
This Trafalgar Group poll is very good news; it shows that Americans are waking up. They are realizing the violent crime wave sweeping our cities and blue states is not because of legal guns.
It’s because of criminals and it’s also because of coddling criminals from the left.
People like new Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg are going soft on gangsters. It results in dangerous people being out on the street and feeling emboldened to do whatever they’d like, with or without a gun.
We need to fix the soft-on-crime problem in our judicial system before we even start hearing about how regulating guns is the real solution to any of what’s going on.
A new Trafalgar Group poll finds 84% of Americans says strict gun control laws either make no difference in stopping crime or make it worse.

The Bottom Line
While there are plenty of influential and well-funded gun control folks on the left who still want to grab our guns and shred the Constitution, the Trafalgar Group poll gives reason for hope.
A sizeable portion of the left and center-left in the Democrat Party is starting to come around on guns. They are realizing that taking guns away from law-abiding folks won’t stop carjackings and robberies in the big cities.
The tragic thing, really, is it has taken such an awful couple of years of horrible violence and lawlessness to make people realize the real reasons for brutality and crime are violent criminals, not law-abiding ranchers in Texas with a rifle or shotgun.
