    Will the people of the UK wake up in time and become citizens instead of subjects?

    WOW! Those #'s look close! No wonder their gov. has been able to successfully ban handguns.... Thats appears to be what their populace wants.

    Notice that there's at least 51% who don't want to ban guns!
    The wind is changing!
    Do you notice, that, in all the polls, there's more and more people supporting RKBA?

    Rarely does a day pass when I fail to feel grateful to our forefathers for having rebelled against the English and founded a republic.

    England seems to have become a nation of serfs.

    Gotta love that "David Blunkett will do anything for votes." Now that's a political whore who'll sell his family to stay in office.

    It's good to see that 51% is pro-guns.

    Did you notice.....

    It always hacks me to see this sort of thing. The propaganda is inherent in the question!!!

    There is no provision for "No, if it saves human life" or
    "Yes, even if it doesn't save human life"

    How about this simple question:
    "Would you be in favor of legislation that imperils your freedom and safety, encourages crime and increases your taxes to do so?"

    If you vote "No", you are opposed to gun legislation. And the question is no more biased than most other polls of the question.
    End of rant.
