Their study, published recently in the British Journal of Political Science, showed that after each mass shooting, rather than moving toward consensus, public opinion became more polarized, with no net movement toward or away from stricter gun regulations. Democrats were more likely to support greater gun control, while Republicans were inclined to support fewer regulations.

Ah the Brits . Their analysis of America and its people has been off base since before we became a nation.

Don’t be any more ignorant than y’all must be. The study was by associates at U. Mass. Amherst and Tufts, and published in BJPS. Their data is from 10,000 respondents at Cooperative Congressional Election Study

Nice anti gun article based on 10000 anti gun libs.

Be careful who is calling who ignorant in this case.

The conclusion is quite balanced if it indeed came from your “10000 anti gun libs.” that mass shootings lead to increased polarization only.

OK, Ghost1958 is not ignorant, it is schtumpig STOOPID! clean to the bone to dismiss the cure for ignorance so.

What is proven historically unwise is to believe anything written by the author of a blatant anti gun guide to increasing gun control.

Please show us where that is proven little schtumpig.
Really sir? You have to be shown all the instances of gun owners putting any credence to a study done by liberal sources, published by a obviously anti gun author leading to their eventual disarmament, or war to prevent it?

Also do NOT call me stupid in any language unless you would be willing to do so to my face. Which I'm dead certain you wouldn't.

Manners sir.

Bogus poll.

The premise is that republicans seek less regulation of our 2A after a mass shooting intentionally omits the fact that republicans seek less regulation of our 2A whether or not a mass shooting occurs. Then again, since there has been a mass shooting in the past his statement is technically correct....after a mass shooting...

Have y’all ever ancountered a survey the results of which you believe are unbiased and significant? Do y’all know how to measure survey bias and survey significance?

I suppose historical facts don't matter compared to the great wisdom of polls.
