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.

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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

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

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

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

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

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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
