Schumer And Gun Sanity-- He's Not On Our Side


If you've been following this blog long, you probably know that I went to James Madison High School in Brooklyn, famous for all the entertainment industry people who studied there-- Carole King, Cousin Brucie, Chris Rock, Aaron Spelling, Judge Judy, Andrew Dice Clay-- but it was also a high school that produced plenty of political figures, from Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Bernie Sanders from before I was there, to senators Norm Coleman and Chuck Schumer while I was there. Schumer was an asshole even back then; no one liked him. He's the same kind of dick he is now. As we mentioned Friday, Schumer has been pestering Senate Democrats to not bring up gun legislation after the Las Vegas massacre. As usual, Schumer is misreading the public's mood. It's his forte.

A poll that was released yesterday by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research reiterates what polls have been showing for years-- that a majority of American voters favors tighter gun laws.
Six in 10 Americans support stricter gun laws in the United States, but many question whether tightening of regulations can actually prevent some forms of gun violence, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

This new survey comes in the wake of the deadliest shooting in modern American history. Sixty-one percent of Americans say they want gun laws to be made stricter, 11 percent would like to see loosening of gun laws, and 27 percent would like to see gun laws left as they are now. Though most would like to see more restrictions on gun ownership, few believe it will lead to a decline in some forms of gun violence. Fifty-three percent of Americans think increased gun control will reduce the number of accidental shootings and nearly half say there would be fewer mass shootings (49 percent) and homicides (46 percent). Fewer say stricter gun regulations would result in a decrease in suicides (40 percent) or gang violence (36 percent).

Owning a gun has marked influence on attitudes toward gun laws and their ability to deter violent crime in the United States. Seventy-six percent of Americans without a gun in their household support stricter gun laws compared with 38 percent of Americans who own a gun and 64 percent of Americans who live in a household in which someone else owns a gun. Gun owners are less likely than those who do not own a gun to say stricter gun laws will lead to a decrease in accidental shootings, mass shootings, homicides, suicides, or gang violence.

Chuck Schumer may be the fourth worst Jew in America, behind only #3 Harvey Weinstein, #2 Stephen Miller, and #1 Sheldon Adelson. He is an embarrassment; almost enough to tempt me to convert to Islam.
