Poll: Orlando was about terrorism, not guns

The Media Research Center's Tim Graham makes the point that the Old Guard media's push for gun control in the wake of shootings never works because people just tune them out. In fact, their constant pushing for gun control only reinforces the notion they have an agenda. “It actually, I think, makes their liberal bias a little more intense," he said on the Fox Business Network. "It's the frustration that all of their advocacy just doesn't seem to break through.”

A new poll seems to bear that out. From Rasmussen Reports:
Most voters say the massacre at an Orlando gay nightclub this past weekend is more about terrorism than gun control, but most also agree that someone on a terrorist watch list should not be able to purchase a gun.
A similar poll in December, after the San Bernardino attack, found a similar result.

Meanwhile, here's a primer on the AR-15.
