Cryo Chamber


A new Rasmussen poll reveals that 57 percent of American citizens believe gun

sales are up over the past several months because of widespread fears that the

government will tighten restrictions on gun ownership.

“The poll results

confirm what we’ve been saying, viagra ” noted Alan Gottlieb, rx chairman of the Citizens

Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. “American citizens are fearful

that the Obama administration and a Democrat-controlled Congress will pass new

laws to further erode the individual right to own firearms. This concern was

further enhanced by yesterday’s ruling in Minnesota that far left anti-gunner Al

Franken should be seated as a U.S. Senator representing that state, giving

Democrats a 60-member majority.”

The Rasmussen telephone survey found that only 23 percent of the respondents

believe gun sales have risen due to concerns about rising crime. Twenty-one

percent are not sure. The poll also revealed that 63 percent of male Americans

and 51 percent of women believe gun sales are linked to concerns about new gun

control schemes. Another finding is that 65 percent of Republicans and 66

percent of those not affiliated with either major political party think booming

gun sales are connected to fears about increased government


“Americans realize that despite all of the campaign

rhetoric, Barack Obama and Congressional Democrats led by House Speaker Nancy

Pelosi are waiting for the right moment to spring new gun control measures,”

Gottlieb stated. “There is little doubt they would like to renew the ban on

semiautomatic sport-utility rifles, place limits on the number of firearms

someone may purchase, and maybe institute some kind of licensing and

registration scheme, as Pelosi hinted during an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning

America. Wherever these measures have been tried on the local level, they have

invariably failed to prevent or reduce violent crime. The Clinton gun ban

failed. One-gun-a-month schemes have failed.

“How many times do you have

to fail at something before you reach the inescapable conclusion that your plan

isn’t going to work,” he questioned. “The Rasmussen poll affirms that Americans

are waking up to the Obama-Pelosi agenda, and they are stocking up for what they

think is an inevitable attack on gun rights.”
