What a Difference a Year Makes

As we approach the one year anniversary (and I really hate using that word since most people associate celebration with an anniversary) of the horrific murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School, a new poll by CNN finds more people (50%-49%) oppose gun control than support it.  Dr. AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News has the story:
CNN Polling Director Keating Holland says the drop in gun control support is due to regional differences: "Demographically speaking, the drop in support for stricter gun laws is mostly based on where people live, with a 10-point decline in the Midwest and a 15-point drop in urban areas having a lot to do with the overall decline nationally."
Support spiked upward after the shooting last year but as time has passed, the number of people supporting new gun control has subsided back to levels seen before December 14, 2012.
