Colorado Politics reports on a new poll that shows a majority of Coloradans would support a ban on the sale of so-called assault weapons.

Allow us to adjust that sub headline just a tad:

There. That’s better.

The Democrat poll is just another “Dog bites Man” story that showed 87% of all Democrats polled support a ban on the scary sounding guns that might look like a military weapon, but are not.

Opposition of the gun ban among Republicans was 74%.

The split among Independents was not so wide with 57% in support of a ban and 40% opposed.

But wait, there’s more!

The poll of 528 people was weighted with Democrats and Independents.

Only 27% of those polled were Republicans, 30% Democrat and 42% unaffiliated.

So the grand total of the Democrat poll shows 57% don’t want scary sounding guns sold, 40% would oppose a ban.
