Freedom isn’t free, but we sure are happy that a lot more people are starting to come around to the idea.


Gallup, the polling organization that has been around since Moby Dick was a minnow, has been monitoring American sentiment on gun control for some time.


Last year, there was a significant change. The number of people who think that gun control laws are too strict more than tripled in the past twelve months. The most recent Gallup poll shows that 16% of Americans believe that gun control laws are too strict. That compares with only 5% who thought that they were too strict in the previous poll.



We find this to be good news for freedom loving Americans. People are, for whatever reason, coming around to the idea that the government should just butt out (no pun intended) when it comes to our right to keep and bear arms. It’s a good thing that there’s an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that forces the government to butt out. Also, the poll shows that the number of people who want stricter gun control dropped last year. That number is down to 31% from 38%, but it’s still off of its low of 25% in 2012.
