    If you own a gun, how would you answer?

    I would probably politely decline to answer. There is no way to know exactly who is calling when i answer and for all i know it could be someone planning to rob my house and wanting to know if i am armed. And even if it is for a legitament reason its a matter of my privacy.

    Is that one of those polling places that calls only landlines? If it is they wouldn't call me anyway. They'd probably also be polling mostly older people if they only call landlines, a lot of younger people like myself and the wife don't have landlines these days.

    "I'm not willing to discuss firearms in my home. But what I am willing to discuss is how much you get paid to ask such a question. And just exactly how many firearms do you have in YOUR home?"

    How many firearms do I have in my home? As many as I can, and counting.

    And when you want 'em, you get 'em all, bullets first. And I'm a damn good shooter that reloads, so it may take awhile. No surrender. Ever. History has confirmed that an unarmed populace is at the will of the government or other entity. And the way I see it, you come for my firearms, you become the enemy, regardless of the patch or badge you wear, so bear that in mind.

    I'll be cremated with my Glock. Nuff' said.

    If it was any place other than Chicago or possibly New York city I'd probably answer differently.

    There is a gun in their house?
    and...
    You are a gun owner, but you answer "no"
    You are a gun owner and you answer "yes"
    You are a gun owner and you refuse to answer
    You are not a gun owner and you answer "no"
    You are not a gun owner and you answer "yes"
    You are not a gun owner and you refuse to answer
