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.

If just ONE had a firearm, none of this would 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.

Polls be damned !

#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.

At some point in time, and I hope it´s soon, we need to decide, or understand, we are not "philosophically aligned" in any way with these wankers. At some point in time we need to rid ourselves - remove this cancer called liberalism - before it kills the patient.

Chef says preparing healthy Passover

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe.

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

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.
