Hit it.

54% against a ban
46% for a ban

Lets' open it up some more. We CAN do better that this. :D

Another liberal rag pretending to offer a conservative viewpoint that suggest we surrender more freedoms to appease the Left.

How farsical. :rolleyes:

Texan Scott

The author opines "If we can't draw a sensible line on guns, we may as well call the American experiment in democracy a failure."

I say NO. American democracy was founded on the premise that every individual citizen has inalienable rights which are not granted by the government and may not be taken away by it either.

Somewhere along the way, many people seem to have aquiesced to the odd idea that democracy means the government doing ANYTHING the popular majority wants at the moment.

THIS IS FALSE. Our Founders went to great pains to explain in writing, and binding as the highest law of the land, what our government IS NOT ALLOWED TO DO.

One of the things they feared most was abuse of power by those trusted with it, and so they EXPRESSLY FORBADE the government to infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms - because the power of the people to say NO to those who would abuse their liberties must never be taken away from them. This right really is necessary to the security of a free state.

The deaths of so many schoolchildren is agonizingly heartbreaking, but allowing "liberals" - whose agenda has nothing to do with personal liberty - to use our grief at the actions of one mentally unstable criminal as a pretext to strip away legal rights of 80 million peacable, law-abiding American citizens and gun owners WOULD be a failure of democracy.

Voted. Particularly worrisome is that this article is advocating a retroactive ban - as in turn in all your AR's and mags over 10 rounds to be destroyed.

Done. I used to live there also. I will never visit that state again until the 2nd Amendment is re-established there.

Ah, magazine capacity limits. So I spend an extra 2 seconds to work through three 10-round magazines with two reloads instead of a single 30 round magazine.

Great argument.

"Voted, Honestly I'm surprised this poll is up, usually when the results aren't to their liking it comes down quick."

Well, there were 55 No's Before I voted. Now there are 54 After. And I naturally voted NO.

It seems to me that the judge needs to retake history and constitutional law. No where in the constitution does it indicate self defense and or hunting as a reason for the 2nd amendment.

I don't know how people forget that the big issue of their time was gaining freedom from an oppressive government and that they needed their guns to do it.

Was at 45 to 55 % no at my vote time. Do you really think it will matter?
