censorship Young Americans are Turning Down Gun Control Forrest Cooper May 4, 2021 21 Comments, Join the Conversation Amidst all the bad news that we hear, every once in a while the good news breaks through. Greater access to information does not in fact make us better without the ability to evaluate it. But in this situation, the evaluation is the easy part. A poll released by ABC News and the Washington post has reported that in the last three years Americans under the age of 30 are considerably less supportive of gun control. In the face of new proposals for limiting what the citizens can legally own, the population is moving away from government control. The 2021 poll, when compared to a similar one taken in 2018, identified a shift in support from people between the ages of 18 and 29 away from red flag laws, and further infringements such as magazine bans. Three years ago, 65% of those polled supported more gun control. This year that number is 45%. Evaluating the information does require some caution, as we do not know how the poll was taken, but it should be interpreted as good news, even if the question is why. Speculation has suggested that the combination of increased civil unrest and a growing lack of trust in the government has pushed some away from limitation, and others towards self-reliance. Last year we saw that underneath all the chatter, the Second Amendment is alive and well as record firearms sales have continued to soar. NICS Checks ran by Month. March 2021 set the record at 4,691,738. The breakdown of the poll draws unsurprising lines between Democrats and Republicans, between rural, urban, and sub-urban audiences, as well as by ethnicity. While all sub-sections report lower support, the syntax of the poll itself leans toward whether or not the audience wants more control, even identifying if President Biden is doing enough. Again correlated to the increase in firearms sales, the theory that most gun control is legislated out of ignorance, not malice, finds some purchase, in that following the spike in gun ownership, the desire for gun control drops. The drop in support for Gun Control from the younger demographic should be seen as a sign of hope. In contrast to our collective crazy uncles' rants, perhaps what the younger generation is showing the world is that they prefer the responsibility of liberty over the constraints of an overprotective government. Stories like these shine through the non-stop alarmism of the moment. While it's not a call to rest on our laurels, it's a reminder that the power has always rested in the people, and isn't something that can be taken without their volition. We need to be wary of exchanges of freedom for safety, and remember that, good or bad, we have had something to do with where our world is going. When it comes to Guns, it looks like we might be doing something right.
