A new poll shows...

...just how hard it would be for Congress to pass meaningful gun control legislation. From the Times article, "New Gun Laws Erode Support for Cuomo":

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s approval rating has fallen sharply among New York voters since he pushed restrictive gun laws through the Legislature, a poll released on Wednesday said. 

Fifty-nine percent said they approved of Mr. Cuomo’s job performance, down 15 percentage points from his 74 percent approval rating last month, the Quinnipiac University poll found.

That's a twenty percent decline in popularity. And Cuomo is one of the more courageous ones. Can you imagine your Congressman or senator taking such an unpopular stand?

P. S. That's former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the video, above, telling senators to "be courageous." Yeah, right.
