    Only 28% of Americans Consider Gun Control a Top Priority, Despite MSNBC, CNN, and CBS Reporting Otherwise

    As news outlets, notably MSNBC, CBS, and CNN, all tout gun control, it’s hard not to accuse these news outlets of exploiting tragedy to promote a left-wing political agenda when a new Washington Post/ ABC News poll shows that gun control isn’t a top political priority with the American people. 

    Examining the results of a new Washington Post poll, the Post's Chris Cilizza in his The Fix blog noted today that Americans believe the national debt and the federal government's chronic deficit spending are greater issues than gun regulation.  In fact, only 28 percent of Americans, including a paltry 41 percent of Democrats, feel the gun control issue requires urgent attention.

    CNN has left any shred of objective journalism aside, it is all-in on gun control frenzy 24-7.

    CNN stacked its Monday line-up with gun control advocates and Democratic politicians.

    Over the course of the entire day Monday, CNN interviewed guests about the gun issue. 13 guests were gun control advocates, including five Democratic politicians. Only two Republican guests went on to oppose further gun control measures or defend the NRA's proposal for armed guards in schools.

    It's not a top priority for me, but gun control laws need to be revised and if not now, then when?  Unfortunately, Obama will expend a lot of political capital on this issue, capital that is needed else where.

    Liberals say that banning assault rifles is the top priority because they are being used so often to kill people.  the truth is that more people were murdered last year using blunt instruments than rifles.

    They like to blame high capacity clips for the murders in the inner cities....the overhwhelming majority of gang/drug/violent crime murders using a gun are in situations where only a few shots are fired, not over 10.

    these silly laws won't change anything...people are the problem....think about it...NH has more guns per capita than Chicago but there are daily murders in Chicago, none in NH....it's not a gun issue, it's a people issue.

    we need to make better people.....

    News outlets ( aka : the media ) exploits everything.

    Just like the Weather Channel loves a nice big hurricane or twister ( tsunamis are also favorites) to boost ratings.

    If some deranged killer goes beserk, you are very likely to be tuning into to a news station, bringing it up on your internet or buying a newspaper. All of which satisfy the advertisers who pay to bring this stuff to you.

    On the other hand, if they don't report it, they aren't doing their job.

    As Americans , we want to see and hear the "expert of the day"...we want to see the aftermath. We want the grisley details. But , the fact is beyond a certain point it is overkill.

    Think about such recent events as the Casey Anthony trial. Ridiculous exploitation by the media. Blow by blow coverage of every aspect of the case. Talk about exploitation of a tragedy!...and this went on and on.

    The Michael Jackson death was in the news until it was beyond sickening ...and of course the trial of the doctor ( who , by now , is a distant memory....who cares anymore?). Exploitation of tragedy.

    This is what the media does , from 9/ 11 to Iraq to the killing of Bin Laden.If tragedy is the media's business , exploiting tragedy is their specialty.

    Number one issue remains jobs and the economy and what does the President want to focus political capital on this time,..... guns.  What is it with this President, does the economy just bore him or does he just not care?
