Poll: Gun control
beats 2nd amendment

Politico, by Kevin Cirilli

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 12/20/2012 3:50:16 PM

More Americans prioritize gun control above Second Amendment rights by the widest margin since President Barack Obama took office, according to a new poll released Thursday in wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings. Forty-nine percent of those polled said it’s more important to control gun ownership, compared to 42 percent who say it’s more important to protect Americans’ rights to own guns, according to a Pew Research Center Poll. The Pew poll showed a slight shift toward gun control that wasn’t apparent following a July shooting at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater.
Headline split by staff.

Comments:
How stupid is this? As if Constitutional rights can be taken away based on the whim of a poll.

Sorry I don´t buy this lie. If the principal and teachers all had guns, this massacre wouldn´t have happened.

Pollor: "Which would you rather have, gun control or your knees removed by a rusty spoon?"

Pollee: "Gimme gun control, please!"

Result: Most people (well, 49% but who´s counting?) want gun control. Wuzzat you say, what about the second amendment part? Eh, knees removed, 2nd amendment; same dog, different chain. That´s the result of our poll and we´re sticking to it!

I´ve never owned a gun but have always believed in the 2nd amendment. I am seriously considering taking a local C&C class and purchasing something for self-defense.

#5...do it. Start the process today. You won´t regret it. Gather the needed couple page paperwork, start to fill it out. Register for class/s . Follow through . Then, it´s buy or not buy a firearm ( your choice). I got my permit to carry with no intention on owning a gun. That all changed as I found I really enjoyed the sport of target shooting. I bought the first of many firearms. That was over 10 years ago now. I´m now 62 and have never harmed anyone or anything in my entire life. I hope to finish out my life living the same, gentle way. I am, however, prepared and trained to defend myself and family if ever necessary. Do it.

I never felt the need to own a gun for protection before Obama got elected. I now own several. I expected buying would be difficult, waiting period, etc. I guess it depends on what state you live in. Paperwork and background check took less than 10 minutes. My wife and I went to the sherriff´s dept. and filled out paperwork for concealed carry permits. We each paid $10.00. In 4 days we recieved a temp. permit. In less than two weeks we recieved laminated permits good for 4 years. No training of any kind was required.
Many would find it outrageous that buying guns and getting a license is so easy. I worry much more about being killed by a driver texting or talking on a cell phone than I do about being shot by a legal gun owner.

#17, I do because our Founding Fathers were much more intelligent, educated, thoughtful and thorough than anyone I have ever known today. They thought of thing that nobody today would ever consider. I believe the FF were not concerned about those that were considered crazy because they would have taken any dangerous people out of the public in the first place and any others would be punished if they broke any laws. They felt it was more important that people´s right to self-defense be unencumbered. Even nuts have a right to defend themselves.

By the way, now we know why the poll is called "pew"...P.U.!

I wonder if anyone would ever think of "speech control" or putting conditions on the right to not be made to quarter troops.

The Bill of Rights is about rights, period. You can´t "abuse" a right, you can only break a law.

The people who talk about how many guns a person "needs" grate on me just like people who question how much money someone else "needs." It is none of your business or mine.

The Founding Fathers gave us a framework from which to live our lives, guaranteeing our liberty and freedom from oppression by a government.

It is up to us to maintain that liberty and when someone like Adam Lanza comes along does what he did, then it´s up to us to remove him and his kind from society.

Punishing law abiding citizens and removing their liberty is tantamount to treason and the first steps into a dictatorship. If you want to see this country literally come apart, then try to take away our right to gun ownership. It will be the next civil war.

Of course, liberals and even some moderates would frame it as a race issue. The media would shout it from every corner: ´Racists! Racists won´t give up their guns and they´re coming to kill your children!´

You can either place blame on the true cause (mental illness) or you can place blame on a non-sentient appliance that has never killed anyone. Your choice. But stand ready to live with the consequences.

Well the real facts are 47% of all American households have one or more firearms. The total number of firearms owned by Americans exceeds 300 Million. The NRA is gaining 8000 members per day. The recent surge in firearms purchases is America saying we will take responsibility to protect ourselves because the government can´t and we don´t trust obama to protect our rights under the Constitution.

You must remember that "gun control" means a lot of things to many people besides essentially banning an entire class of firearms as the liberal Democrats say they want to do. Of course controlling the purchase and possession of firearms by dangerous mentally ill people stands out from the constitutional right of law abiding Americans to purchase and possess firearms under the 2nd Amendment.

I blame the lack of civics education in this country.

They have not been taught about their protections under the "rule of law" and that the constitution is the contract by which we have agreed to have a government to manage certain affairs viz "bulls**t (foreign affairs), bullets (armed forces to protect the nation) and ballots ( elections for representatives to manage interstate affairs).

Those of you who have not talked to few recent college graduates about their study courses are in for a shock!

Politico is making a huge push to convince the Democrats that gun control is no longer a losing issue. They may succeed in that, but smart Dems will probably look at the rate of gun sales and see that Politico is full of stuff.

Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent.

The San Francisco 49ers said they are aware of a TMZ report saying quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being investigated for an incident in Miami and are gathering facts on the incident. TMZ reported Thursday that police are in the beginning stages of investigating an alleged incident which TMZ said happened at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami earlier this month. The story said the police were investigating for "possible sexual assault," but Bay Area News Group crime reporter Natalie Neysa Alund wrote that the incident is not being investigated as a sexual assault. No charges have been filed at this point.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive
