Americans say new gun laws unnecessary.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on August 31st, 2007

Two-thirds of people in the United States think current legislation is enough to control gun crime, according to a poll by Zogby International. 66 per cent of respondents think there are sufficient laws on the matter and that better enforcement is required.

Conversely, 31 per cent of respondents believe new and tougher gun control legislation is needed to help in the fight against gun crime.

The U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment guarantees Americans the right “to keep and bear arms.” Some American states have enacted their own gun control regulations, independent of existing federal legislation.

In April, Cho Seung-hui killed 32 people—fellow students and teachers—at the Virginia Tech University campus in two separate incidents, before turning his gun on himself. The shooting is the deadliest of its kind in American history and revived a debate on whether the country should introduce new legislation on gun control.

On Aug. 21, John M. Snyder, the former editor of the National Rifle Association (NRA) magazine, called for Congress to “deny federal funding to colleges and universities that prohibit students and professors from carrying firearms on campus if they have state-issued permits to carry concealed firearms.” Snyder explained his views on the Virginia Tech shootings, declaring, “None of the victims could defend anyone from the murderer since Virginia Tech prohibits law-abiding professors and students from carrying guns on campus even if they have state issued permits to carry concealed firearms.”

    Whether it’s a campus or a WalMart, if you’re legislated empty-handed you have no means of defense. You then become a government mandated victim/corpse.

    We ARE the government, therefor we must be both vigilante and vocal.

    Yup I agree Bruce. I was recently in Philadelphia(only 45 mins away from me) and I took a self guided tour of the liberty bell and independence hall where our constitution was signed. Guess what, I was not allowed to carry since it was federal land…doesn’t that strike you the wrong way? The founding fathers wrote the constitution to prevent government from doing what it wants, and now we can’t carry in, or on the property that our constitution was signed. It is a feel good law and nothing more, security was a freaking joke also. They only inspected handbags and purses, me or any criminal out there could waltz right in with a gun, there was no metal detectors, only searching of bags and purses it was a joke. So why say no guns if you aren’t gonna check for them anyways? It pissed me off that law abiding people such as myself could not carry, but any criminal could walk in with a gun because they did not search people, it was such BS…
