The Masses Are Smarter Than I Give Them Credit For

From Rasmussen Reports:
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of American Adults believe the failure of government agencies to respond to numerous warning signs from the prospective killer is more to blame for the mass shooting. Thirty-three percent (33%) attribute the deaths more to a lack of adequate gun control. Eleven percent (11%) opt for something else. (To see survey question wording, click here.)...
Among Americans who have children of elementary or secondary school age, 61% think the government is more to blame. Just 23% of these adults fault a lack of adequate gun control more. 
I presume this group are going to be more passionate at election time.  These are also more likely Republican voters, anyway, which explain their willingness to assign blame.
