    News Flash............  WASHINGTON -- A majority of Americans support stricter gun laws in the aftermath of the Newtown school shooting, but most oppose banning assault weapons, a move that is backed by President Obama as a step to curb gun violence, according to a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll. Fifty-eight percent of Americans now say they favor stricter gun laws, up from 43% in October 2011. And the American public, which favored enforcing existing gun laws over passing new ones by a 60%-35% in 2011, now is split on the issue, with 46% favoring enforcing current laws and 47% favoring passing new ones. In terms of specific laws, however, the ban on assault weapons, which are a favorite target of gun control advocates — including Obama -- hasn't gained any significant support, according to the poll. Forty-four percent support such a move and 51% are against it. In October 2011, 43% supported an assault weapons ban and 51% said they were against it.




    Newsflash, a larger majority supports the PotUS plan to avoid the fiscal cliff but that hasn't affested the wingnuts intransigence.

    There are wingnuts on both sides of the aisle, a deal will require the adults from both parties.  This excludes Senate leadership both sides and Pelosi.

    Ok, well, more than 51% supported reelecting Obama and yet this forum is still full of rants against him.

    That's true a slight majority doesn't silence the discussion.  Obama doesn't have a mandate nor is there a mandate to support assualt rifles.
