Huffpo’s Mike Weisser, claims “Half of Gun Owners Support an Assault Rifle Ban…”

One of the post-Newtown polls showing wide, public support for expanded background checks was conducted by researchers at the Bloomberg Public Health School at Johns Hopkins University, and now that I’ve mentioned the unmentionable, those readers in the pro-gun community will please do everyone a favor and keep their comments to themselves.

The fact Mike Weisser continues to pass himself off as a “gun guy” continues to infuriate me. Be that is it may, what is even more unfortunate is that there are a substantial number of people who view the Huffington Post as a legitimate news site. If Fox News and MSNBC don’t count, HuffPo damn sure shouldn’t. But while we’re tossing around poor information sources, Weisser bases his conclusion on a poll conducted by, wait for it…a Michael Bloomberg funded grant at the Bloomberg Public Health School at Johns Hopkins University. Yeah, real independent thinking going on there!
