Conservatives oppose President Obama’s moves to restrict the rights of gun owners and expect Republicans to take an active role in fighting Obama on the issue, according to a poll this week by FedUp Pac.
Opposition to Obama’s gun control measures was stated by 91%, while 94% said that Obama should focus on enforcing the laws as written rather than adding new restrictions.
The official Republican platform should call for reversing Obama’s actions, according to 91%. Furthermore, if Federal officials exceed their legal authority in enforcing the new restrictions, 83% want them fired by a Republican president and 86% say they should be prosecuted by the next administration.
Donald Trump’s suggestion for the repeal of “gun-free zones” around schools has 83% backing. There is support for keeping criminals who use guns in jail with longer sentences, as 87% express concern that Obama’s plan for releasing criminals earlier would conflict with his goal of reducing gun violence.
84% expect that Obama’s plan for universal background checks will eventually lead to national gun registration. A mere 6% believe Obama’s claim that his new restrictions will not make it more difficult to buy a gun.
A recent CNN poll saying that a majority of Republicans support Obama on gun control is considered credible by only 5%.
FedUp PAC is a grass roots organization that wants constitutional conservatives to take over the GOP because Americans are fed up with the Republican establishment. It is not affiliated with any candidate or committee.
