A new Rasmussen poll indicates that more Americans blame government failure than current gun laws for the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Rasmussen Reports stated Tuesday:

“…54% of American Adults believe the failure of government agencies to respond to numerous warning signs from the prospective killer is more to blame for the mass shooting. Thirty-three percent (33%) attribute the deaths more to a lack of adequate gun control. Eleven percent (11%) opt for something else.”

That is a pretty big difference.

Many Democrats and members of the establishment media have come out in favor of gun control measures since the shooting in Parkland.

There has also been a concerted effort to tear down the National Rifle Association (NRA). A number of corporations are now boycotting the NRA.

An NRA statement from last week reads in part, “The law-abiding members of the NRA had nothing at all to do with the failure of that school’s security preparedness, the failure of America’s mental health system, the failure of the National Instant Check System or the cruel failures of both federal and local law enforcement.” (RELATED: NRA Says It Will Not Be Intimidated By Corporations Severing Partnerships)
