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.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

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'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
