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

Washington Times, by Jennifer Harper

Original Article

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:

Comments:
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.

Bans would make felons out of a sizeable percentage of citizens. Sounds like prohibition to me. And I expect the results won´t be too different, either.

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

#18 and 19, I was thinking that a nail gun would be a handy tool to have at the ready and would hurt like heck if it was aimed and connected with tissue around the knees or thighs of an intruder, and then again as the bad guy is running away, in the buttocks!! This is cheering me up immensely!

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. The job will be complete when he stacks the SOTUS with a couple more commie puppets.

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 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." George Mason, Co-author of the Second Amendment, during Virginia´s Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788

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.

Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

The ´soft despotism´ of regulation

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
