America's past gun control laws might surprise you ctm magazine

Despite recent mass shootings in Buffalo, Uvalde, and Tulsa, Americans are pessimistic that new gun safety laws will pass Congress because of partisan polarization. But even in the mythical gun-loving wild west, sheriffs wouldn’t allow guns into town.

David Yamane, a gun-owning sociologist, discusses with Reality Check’s John Avlon the disconnect between gun mythology in America and its gun culture today.

A striking number from a new poll on guns
Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large

As Congress considers, again, the possibility of moving a package of gun control reforms, a number from a new CBS News/YouGov poll jumped out at me as evidence of why solving America’s gun violence problem is so hard.

It’s this: 44% of Republicans said that mass shootings are something we have to accept as part of a free society. (A majority of Republicans — 56% — said mass shootings are something we can prevent and stop if we really tried.)

That number is a striking departure from how the country as a whole views the issue. More than 7 in 10 Americans (72%) said that mass shootings could be prevented if we really tried, while just 28% said they were part of living in a free society.

Consider what those Republicans are saying: There is no policy — or cultural — solution to the problem of mass shootings. Instead, it is a necessary evil of living in a free society.
This is, of course, utter bunk.

Plenty of other free countries in the world do not have a mass shooting problem like we do in the United States.

    the last time i saw a gun was with a uniformed police officer 2/3 days ago even traffic cops i see every time don't carry guns here in a supposed 'developing country' then there is a 'first world nation' where they buy guns as a burger. i thought having a gun is a privilege for people with a necessary reason not right for everyone.

    In US of A you can’t have sex, smoke or drink but you CAN have a machine gun and unlimited ammunition

    Why not do a show about the 2nd amendment, and inform your viewers what the Articles of the Amendment Says about personal gun ownership and rules and guidelines for forming militias?
    The right always quotes the amendment, but never talks about the rules in the articles regarding militias! The people don’t get to form their own, oh no, the government must activate them. As for having your weapon ready, you can forget that, too, because the Gov’t will issue all firearms, not the individual, so your guns stay at home! Surprised? It helps to read these documents.

    The latest gun laws will do jack $HIT. Already too many guns in the community. Force a buy back

  • Hieu Nguyen on June 9, 2022

    lol how come they didn't mention gun laws back in 1920 to 1975 when they targeted minorities stripping of every rights they have and one of them including firearms ownership.

  • Cody shmodie on June 9, 2022

    So manipulative, mass shootings on the rise in part to liberal insanity, and in part cause the definition to mass shootings were changed. Drive by is a mass shooting if 3 people are shot, or three in any case involving a gun, Just like how gun deaths include scuicides. But where are the heros? They happen damn near everyday somone stops a criminal with their gun, but that doesnt push your agenda and you nation wide psyop. Come and take then mfs no one gonna wanna do your bidding, your brainwashing can only go so far.

    If you gun control advocates could answer basic questions about your stance..we could get somewhere..problem is..your argument is riddled with holes and indefensible against even a small amount of skepticism.

  • Martenson Lee on June 9, 2022

  • Martenson Lee on June 9, 2022

    Wake up there's a reason our for fathers wanted our gun's rights untouchable ! Why !

  • A W on June 9, 2022

    92% of violent crime in the US doesn’t involve a gun at all. All recent shootings are being done by government manipulated men to manipulate an appearance as if this is an organic problem in the US so they can collapse our constitution…AKA the only thing protecting us from tyrannical mass extermination. Everywhere, all of the time, all of a sudden is a recent government agenda. It always has worked that way. It’s age old political strategy. Get your government street smart hats and PUT THEM ON FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR FELLOW PEOPLE. STOP BEING SO NAIVE OR YOU WILL BE EQUALLY TO BLAME FOR WHATS TO COME WHEN OUR CONSTITUTION GETS COLLAPSED.

  • Devin Sullivan on June 9, 2022

    So let’s say we get rid of gun, we abide by the socialist gun reform these people are trying to push. How does removing firearms from the mix impact the mentally Ill person who wants nothing more than to kill many people? I thought that guns were the issue and not culture/people. If guns are the issue then we shouldn’t have these mentally Ill people anymore that will kill many people.

    It is on purpose , that they do not explain Red Flag Law , they dont want you to realize how fu*ked up it is .
    Same with background checks, they want to imply to the uneducated population, that people are buying guns "without" background checks . NOT TRUE . I have never purchased a firearm without a background check . They should specify that is is the individual to individual sales they are targeting, but they dont . Because they aren't intending to devise a way to do it ,without trampling on peoples rights . We have such , Low character , sneaky, underhanded , power hungry corrupt leaders, that its all about getting money from the lobby . Thats the only reason they chose to be in politics . Each one intends, to be bought off by the highest bidder . END OF STORY . MOLON LABE

  • ImaFreakin Historian on June 9, 2022

    They are far more likely to feed someone , than kill someone .
    When all you see is concrete, and steel, you dont realize that in the rest of the country, we dont need kroger , or pigly wigly.
    But you do , remember that . How cocky are you now ? Still like socialism ? gonna eat what , where, and when they tell you ?

    One thing you'll never hear on CNN is police officers assassinated by black life's matter will not be attending any hearings police officers that have been assassinated by antifa will not be attending any hearings.
    All the people murdered in our cities when black life matters and antifa rioted and burn them will not be showing up to any trials.
    That's just a few things that you won't hear on CNN that you Be hearing.

  • Gary Mars on June 9, 2022

    Want to disarm you so this Communist government that is in charge right now can take over.

  • Fk Ya on June 9, 2022

    We have no gun zones it called schools how’s that working out! Drugs are illegal how’s that working out! Murder is illegal how’s that working out. Gun laws are a waste of time! We have a parenting problem where they let kids sit in their rooms and be antisocial and shoot shit on video games all day! Get your kids out of their comfort zone at a young age! Be a fucking parent!

  • Gary Mars on June 9, 2022

    We keep guns around today just in case our government decides to turn against us because we have to watch communists like you all day long

  • Logan Dashiell on June 9, 2022

    Yeah, this is %1000 as biased as I thought it would be, CNN sure knows how to meet my expectations.

    Oh, you mean the one where blacks, protecting their own in California, were disarmed with the help of the NRA?
    Right and Left are on the same team against all American citizens.
    Meanwhile, imported diversity savages are molesting and abusing white minorities in Georgia.
    Exactly when the war was announced is unknown, but the government is replacing all of you.
    NYT –
    “Two pre-school Georgia teachers were arrested after a live camera feed caught both teachers abusing pint-sized students.

    The footage obtained by WSBTV shows one teacher stepping on the fingers of a child and then bumping another student with her knee from behind. Another teacher can be seen using her finger to push a student’s head back after getting in the child’s face."

    Seems to me the plan is for more violence, we just have to teach them early and often, right?!

    A semi auto rifle and 30 round magazine is for indiscriminate killing. Like sawed off shotguns and hand grenades they should be illegal. No one needs them for defense, sport, or hunting. Tired of children paying with their lives so morons that never grow up can pretend they’re Rambo.

    5:06 yeah, dude. Nevermind ending slavery. Cus thats not important.

    Put armed guards back in the schools again. Hire several per school, not just one.

    The criminal case against officer Christopher Schurr in the April 4 killing of 26-year-old Patrick Lyoya came just over seven weeks after an independent autopsy found Mr Lyoya was shot in the back of the head at point-blank range.
    Murderous cops .. deserve to be hung in the village square !!
    Evil intent evil cops evil guns .. only in the US !
