    85-15% in favor, not surprising. Americans love their guns.

    85+% for freedom.
    Less than 15% opposed to it.

    I guess they didn't like the poll results - they are now experiencing "technical difficulties."

    Doesn't matter what the Court does; as in D.C., the powers that be will figure out a way to keep "certain people" (liberal codespeak for blacks) from [legally] owning guns. The "liberal establlishment" got the hell scared out of it in 1968 and quick passed a Federal law that was designed to keep blacks from buying guns, and that has been the real reason for just about every U.S. gun control law before or since. Citizens with guns might not "know their place" and vote the way "de Massa" tells them to.

    Actually the first gun control laws came about after the civil war to prevent freed slaves from arming themselves. Modern gun control laws frequently target poor black residential areas. The laws aren't outright racist anymore, but they do indirectly target poor and legally undereducated minorities.

    Gun buy backs in poor neighborhoods is a prime example of the government not trusting its lower class citizens with guns.

    I always thought gun buybacks were because the gov didn't trust anyone with

    guns. They haven't gotten around the good old Constitution yet.

    Poor neighborhoods, in general, equal a higher instance of crime. Holding a

    buyback in these neighborhoods would be smart if it were the criminals turning

    in the guns, probably not the case though. Gun control came about (in modern

    times) because two Kennedy's (Political Power) were killed.

    When the anti gunners are funded by George Soros' deep pockets, they will continue to come up with one ridiculous code/law/policy etc. If the NRA or other pro gun organizations have to fight every little township and city throughout the U.S., well it will simply bankrupt them -- IMHO. The people have spoken so clearly on this issue in support of 2nd amendment rights and these local politician and community leaders simply just don't care. The media is at the very least a large part of the problem.

    No, but that's OK. Here in Australia these online polls used to be held on a regular basis. If the result went against shooters it was trumpeted in the 'current affairs' shows as proof of the need to ban guns.
    If shooters swamped the poll it quietly went away.
    So what we are doing here is removing a propoganda tool from the antis hands.
    Consider it a necessary defensive skirmish in the greater war for gun rights.
