Conservatives Demand GOP Fight Obama Over Gun Owner Rights

FedUp PAC Staff

            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.
