Not long after the last national elections , the antis said the gun control issue wasnt dead , just new tactics ..
I think I heard one a couple days ago on the radio ..
A "NEW" survey revealed that gun ownership was down from 55% of the population in 1970 to 30% in 2006 .. Also most favor stricter gun control laws post 9/11 ..

My take is that the 55% in 1970 is a bogus number , probably was much higher ... The 30% I take to be bogus as well , way too low ..
As for the laws , well that can go either way depending on your outlook .. If you know how tough the laws are , you probably dont want them any tougher .. If you dont know , or are anti gun then they are never tuff enuff ..

Watch 'em ..

I'm not sure if the numbers are bogus. Statistical data can be manipulated to say whatever the person wants it to say. It could also be the group that they are sampling is different. Also the population was lower than and we could have the same number of gun owners as before which would make the percent go down.
Also how many of the people now aren't welling to say they own a gun because of the stigma that is now being added to it. (i.e. "all gun owners in the city are gang bangers" or "only those who are over reacting to events - 9/11 - own guns")
As for the curent laws if they would just enforce the ones that are there and tell people (i.e. the general public) what the laws are than things would be a whole lot different.
Lastly the crazys who want no guns won't change and worry me more than the government

I agree with evrything you say .. Completely .. Two sides can take the same survey and make their side look good , depending all in their wording of the survey results ..
Also as someone said elsewhere , they're making this up as they go along ..

I'm a member of the Gallop Panel. I could be wrong, but a couple of years ago, I think that I received some data on other Gallop Polls that stated gun ownership in the USA was up after 9/11, and more people than ever supported the Second Amendment.
Gallop Polls are pretty accurate, and impartial, so IF I am correct on this, the moron who said all of the other crap, is a wtf wtf MORON wtf wtf

That too. It all depends on who they sample and how they ask the questions.
