As Townhall.com's Katie Pavlich reports:
Paging CNN host Piers Morgan. A new Rasmussen Report shows an overwhelming majority of Americans believe the Second Amendment and gun rights are necessary to protect against tyranny.The new polling data comes as gun-rights rallies are planned throughout the north state on Saturday, including one at the corner of Cypress Avenue and Hilltop Drive in Redding.
Two-out-of-three Americans recognize that their constitutional right to own a gun was intended to ensure their freedom.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of American Adults think the purpose of the Second Amendment is to make sure that people are able to protect themselves from tyranny. Only 17% disagree, while another 18% are not sure.
In case you missed it last week, Morgan mocked Breitbart's Ben Shapiro for making this point.
