Conservative pollster Frank Luntz says the National Rifle Association isn’t listening to Americans, as it digs in on any new gun control measures in the wake of the Newtown shooting massacre that claimed 26 lives and the Webster firefighter shooting. He told Politico that the NRA is “out of touch.”

Politico:  Frank Luntz said, “The public wants guns out of the schools, not in the schools. And they are not asking for a security official or someone else. I don’t think the NRA is listening. I don’t think they understand most Americans would protect the Second Amendment rights and yet agree with the idea that not every human being should own a gun, not every gun should be available at anytime, anywhere, for anyone. At gun shows, you should not be able to buy something there without any kind of check whatsoever.”
