The College Fix recently reportedthat Democrat college students are blaming President Donald Trump more than the Chinese government for the Wuhan Virus’s global reach.
The online poll asked 1,000 college students the following question: “Who has played more of a role in the global spread of coronavirus?” The choices presented were “President Trump,” “the Chinese government,” “both equally” and “neither/something else.”
According to the results, 27 percent of Democratic college students blame President Trump more as opposed to the 15 percent who blame the Chinese government more. On the other hand, only 3 percent of Republican college students pinned the blame on President Trump more while 72 percent blamed the Chinese government more.
Only 3 percent of Republican students blame Trump and the Chinese government equally, whereas 36 percent of Democratic college students and 28 percent of independents do so.
11 percent of independent college students blame President Trump more versus 36 percent who blame the Chinese government more.
Based on the overall results of the 1,000 college students polled, 16 percent blame President Trump more, 34 blame the Chinese government more, 27 blame both equally, and 23 chose neither/something else.
College Pulse, an online survey studying student attitudes, conducted the student poll for The College Fix on April 6. The sample was taken from College Pulse’s undergraduate student panel that consists of 270,000 verified students from over 900 different colleges and universities in all 50 states.
These polls reveal the growing divide in America where people are polarized on practically every issue and there appears to be no sense of unity on fundamental issues.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
