Two-thirds of U.S.
weapons owners would
´defy´ a federal gun ban

Washington Times, by Jennifer Harper

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/20/2013 9:34:34 PM

interesting little factoid has emerged from a new Fox News poll of U.S. voters: Personal sentiments are strong and defiant among many U.S. gun owners. Question 46 in the wide-ranging survey of more than 1,000 registered voters asks if there is a gun in the household. Overall, 52 percent of the respondents said yes, someone in their home owned a gun. That number included 65 percent of Republicans, 59 percent of conservatives, 38 percent of Democrats and 41 percent of liberals. But on to Question 47, addressed to those with a gun in their home:

There is a large percentage of Democrats who would defy the law in this poll. Someone needs to send this to Schumer.

No guns in this house, either. Nor ammo. Who would own such a thing? Someone might get hurt.

lemmie see.....

A random stranger calls my house claiming to be taking a poll and asks if I plan to break the law should it come to it.

And 2/3 of respondents said "heck yeah."

The Democrats are so utterly screwed.

If I´d received this survey , the answer to that question would have been along the lines of "MYOB".

Re: ignoring laws you consider "unconstitutional"...first: YOU don´t get to decide that. And second: just as newer, more brutal texts of the cur-an supercede earlier, gentler ones, Tyrant Hussein´s "Roolz for good Goobermint" supercede the United States Constitution.

Oh the pessimists. Let´s stay objective and keep things in context: Marching in the streets wasn´t even mentioned in the story. It looks like it is a comment by the poster Miss K. It´s only a hypothesis.

Let´s say every state revolted over a gun ban. Well then bamboozler needs at least 50 drones. If it is more than just the capitol in each state being marched on, he´ll need multiple drones and that gets complicated. He can´t drone himself out of every scenario. Besides what goes up must come down and we´ll converge on the air fields where they are launched and destroy them if he stoops that low.

This skeletal poseur is a foreign invader here to destroy the USA and implement Islamic Socialism and he should be treated as such as in no mercy. A comprehensive ban probably won´t happen but this man does not take no for an answer. Look what happened with the final decision on the UN/ACA.

hmmm. 2/3 of people who say they are weapon owners would defy a federal gun ban, and 100% of those who have weapons, but say they don´t would defy a federal gun ban, well, perhaps the militia will not be unarmed.

And just what is the "militia"? No less than the co-author of the 2nd Amendment, George Mason, tells us: "I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people[.] ... To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."

I truly believe some day this country will implode and split up into states again. I am first a citizen of North Carolina and second a citizen of USA.

The most important amendment is the second amendment. If my forbears died to create the constitution of these United States....it is my obligation to defend it and die for it as well. Which I almost did once on a bloody trail on the Laotian border.

There are a lot of dangerous old men out here in America.....with much training, spirit and gumption.

18th Amendment

Section 1. After one year from the ratification of this article the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for beverage purposes is hereby prohibited.

Section 2. The Congress and the several States shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Section 3. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of the several States, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the States by the Congress.

The above did not prohibit consumption. Section 1 contains the food & Walgreen´s exemption. Most states turned a blind eye to Section 2. It turned millions of American citizens into cynical criminals. It was a Progressive dream come true.

My personal stand is that I don´t respond to ANY polls. When asked to participate, I simply respond that I don´t do polls, thank you, and hang up. I don´t give them a chance to respond back to me.

And I, like others, will NEVER tell anyone whether or not I own guns, nor would I tell them what or how many or what types. As previously posted, it´s none of their business.

Would I defy a federal gun ban? Is a pig´s butt pork? Does a bear poop int the woods? Is the Pope a Catholic?

If they tried to disarm the people, this country would turn into Beirut. Our country is only as civilized, peaceful, and prosperous as it is because the people have, at least the illusion of liberty. Take away that illusion and you take away the reason for maintaining that peace.

#26 - Refill that thing with ammonia. My grandad use to fill a squirt gun with ammonia and use it to break dogs from chasing his car. It works! Whenever a dog would see his Olds coming down the road, they would run and hide. Can you imagine breaking into a house at night and getting a squirt of ammonia in the face?

It´s all so Communist smelling. Banning or putting down religion. Banning free speech by closing down the internet. Take your choice: Stalin, Hitler, Mao, there are so many examples of tyranny, and gun banning, gun prohibitions, gun confiscation are just another totalitarian move against law abiding citizens, as history proves. In America, all further threats to private ownership can only bring on a monstrous black market, exactly the way it has with illegal drugs. Half the American population will always have guns, will never give them up to any tyranny. Obama, Feinstein, Reid, Schumer, Bloomberg, Pelosi, Holder, have only one interest in promoting all these gun restrictions, and it is to make every citizen a criminal. Drug prohibition has already made thousands of otherwise innocent people into prison bound criminal status. Think of the thousands now in prison. Any future gun restrictions will only make peaceful citizens into a new criminal class. The shocking truth is that criminals, gangs today are not being attacked by the Obama driven anti gun fanatics, and certainly are not being properly punished for their felonious use and ownership of black market guns.

The only thing that will keep us conservatives out of concentration camps in the future will be the fact that we are armed and ready to use those arms to defeat/kill the liberal tyrants that seek to enslave us. Never give up your guns - never. Obama and his kind would just love to enslave some 20-25 million white conservatives who stand between them and their cherished Stalinist "utopia". In the future, we conservatives and Christians will be forced to go underground, much like Chinese Christians are today. Be prepared for the coming storm. Obama is an evil doer. He is not one of us. He is an enslaver. He is a smiling Hitler, promising to make all EBT cards are delivered on time.

#32 thank you so much for your service! Surveys & polls - forget it. A month ago at 8PM on a cold dark night in our gated community there was a knock on the door & a woman with a badge with the Census Bureau located in Denver(not even in my state)asked me if I would answer a few questons. I replied "I won´t answer anything - I have already sent in my paperwork months ago. She gave me her card. I called & it was authenic so I called our security. They didn´t know anything about someone being here. Really a scary episode - wonder if they will do the same with guns. Let´s hope Ted Cruz & Rand Paul can raise a little hell!

Don´t think that a lot of those liberals and socialists don´t want to end the so-called War on Drugs, let all the drug related criminals out of the prisons, and crank up a new War on Guns putting the now law abiding firearms owners who possess would be banned firearms in those empty prison cells vacated by the drug dealers. Remember drug dealers to the related street criminals on down are more likely to vote for liberal Democrats then the majority of law abiding American firearms owners.

Wow. I had no idea so many guns had been lost overboard, though I should have realized it. Several good-sized lakes in this area can no longer be fished. They´re too shallow because of all the guns lying on the bottom.

I´m glad to say not one is mine! I just cannot, cannot, cannot imagine owning such dangerous icky things as guns! I´ve been told they´re very loud, too. Ewww! Don´t like loud stuff. Well, OK, there are some spots in Beethoven´s Ninth and -- but that´s another subject.

Forget the Super-Soaker stuff -- get a couple cans of wasp spray, the kind that shoot [oops!] a stream 20 feet. Keep one in the car, by the bed, near the front and back door. Potentially very useful in less-threatening situations. Seriously. OK?

For those numerous responses about nail guns, I own two of them. There is a problem however. NEITHER will activate unless firmly pressed against wood or other stiff material. Just thought you would like to know. You can´t just pull the trigger and have a nail hurl through the air, like you may have seen on Danny Glover movies.

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign. Those scheduling decisions

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This Earth Day we need to consider new ways to unleash a new wave of activism to tackle today’s long list

When she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton instituted a Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review. The first one was completed in December 2010. Nearly four years later, AP reporter Matt Lee asked State Department Jen Psaki to name one thing that Clinton’s QDDR accomplished. Just one. She can’t. LEE: “Off the top of your head, can you name one tangible achievement that the last QDDR resulted in?” PSAKI: “Well Matt, obviously it’s in an extensive, expansive process.” LEE: “So no.” PSAKI: “We’re looking at how it was done last time.” LEE: “Just one.” PSAKI: “I know, I’m making an important

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
