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:

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.

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.

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 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?

#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.

If you do a quick Internet search for "Gwyneth Paltrow," you´ll find an onslaught of furious comments about the actress. Alhough the 41-year-old often stirs up controversy (thanks to everything from her touting her own wood-burning pizza oven to referring to her recent breakup as a "conscious uncoupling"), this latest reaction is due, in part, to a New York Post open letter to Paltrow regarding an interview she gave on the challenges of being a movie-star mom.

Having done his darndest in The Hague, Barack Obama is taking his “cast of 100s” caravan to the sands of the Saudis. Riyadh may seem a strange place to end a European tour, but Mr. Obama often does the unexpected. What he does not do when travelling, however, is deal directly with the really bad stuff. Even at The Hague, as tens of thousands of Russian troops massed on Ukraine’s border, he sought to divert attention from the calamity on Europe’s frontier. Instead, he asserted that Russia’s aggression was a sign of weakness, and Moscow would sooner or later come to

New allegations are raising additional questions about former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell´s involvement in crafting the administration´s flawed narrative on the Benghazi attack, ahead of his scheduled testimony next week on Capitol Hill. Morell is set to testify publicly for the first time on Wednesday about his role in crafting the controversial Benghazi "talking points," which initially blamed a protest for the deadly attack. The former acting director, and deputy director, was called to testify to explain potentially conflicting testimony he gave Congress about the talking points and the administration´s role. The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Mike

The Kroger grocery store chain "is in the process of transitioning to unarmed security guards across the company." According to 10TV in Columbus, Ohio, "Kroger said armed guards will remain in some of its locations," but it is not saying where. U.S. Protection Service is the company that provides security for Kroger. The service recently sent a letter to its employees informing them that "effective March 29, its guards will be ´completely unarmed – no weapons, no handcuffs, no chemical repellant, no baton, etc.´" The letter adds that the company views the decision as "very disheartening." 10TV interviewed shoppers in the Columbus area who

U.S. Capitol police officers "detained" a journalist who was attempting to question Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy, according to the reporter, who was released after a background check. "I am being detained by Capital Police for trying to ask @EPAGina a question after her remarks," BloombergBNA´s Ari Natter tweeted. "Not the first time I have been threatened with arrest for doing my job as a reporter. Probably not the last either," Natter added.

White House takes step toward

The White House took steps Friday toward issuing methane emissions regulations at hydraulic fracturing sites, a move that would slash greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of meeting President Obama´s climate goals but will invite backlash from industry. The news is a victory for environmental groups, which note that methane -- a short-lived, potent greenhouse gas that has a 20 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide -- is the largest remaining unregulated greenhouse gas, accounting for 9 percent of U.S. emissions. The oil and gas industry, however, has warned that regulating methane emissions would stunt domestic energy production by raising

The White House on Friday touted the story of a “staunch Republican” who says he’s getting the best coverage he’s ever had under ObamaCare. “I am a staunch Republican, a self-proclaimed Fox News addict, and I didn´t vote for the President,” Mark Beard, a retired psychologist from North Carolina, wrote in a letter posted on the White House website. “And I´m here to tell you that ObamaCare works. I´m living proof.” Beard said he was paying $428 a month for chemotherapy treatment and was upset when he got a notice from his insurer saying his plan would be canceled. But he said

A widely-held notion on the left holds that Republicans and conservatives just “love” Russian President Vladimir Putin. Groups like Media Matters for America hold up conservative commentators like Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as examples of this phenomenon, but Media Matters is confusing making unfavorable comparisons between Putin and President Barack Obama for admiration for Putin. But now the left, which has been eager for weeks to claim that the GOP is deeply enamored with the revanchist president of an expansionist Russia, now has a real champion for Putin’s aggression in Europe: Rep.

Gun control groups working to push further gun control in California worry that state senator Leland Yee´s indictment on arms trafficking "may slow the legislature´s consideration of gun restrictions this year." According to AP California News, on March 27 organizers of more legislation said "the charges filed against...Yee, a Democrat from San Francisco, could cloud the future of two of his gun control bills." As Breitbart News reported on March 26, Yee supported an "assault weapons" ban in California and a requirement for background checks for ammunition purchases. He also co-sponsored an expansion of "the list of crimes that disqualify an individual

Joining a long line of Democrats distancing themselves from Obamacare, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel hinted that he didn´t support the President´s original plans for the healthcare take over and advised the President to take a different approach, though he shied from saying just what that meant. In a March 27 interview on cable business network CNBC, Emanuel claimed that he offered the President a "contrary opinion" on Obamacare but his advice was not heeded. "He asked for my opinion," Emanuel said during an interview on CNBC´s Squawk Box. "I gave it to him and why I thought we should do

Following several years of "constructive dialog" with the LGBT community, the U.S. Justice Department is now training law enforcement officers on how to better understand and help the "transgender community." "It’s clear that such training is as necessary as it is overdue," Associate Attorney General Tony West told a gathering at the Justice Department on Thursday, as DOJ´s Community Relations Service kicked off its new "transgender law enforcement cultural professionalism training." The training will help law enforcement agencies "improve their understanding of the transgender communities they serve and improve their work with those communities," said Deputy Assistant Attorney General James Cole, who

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

President Obama said Pope Francis did not raise Obamacare “in detail” when they met on Thursday, but that in a separate meeting with the Vatican’s secretary of state “we discussed briefly the issue of making sure that conscience and religious freedom was observed in the context of applying the law.” At a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama also acknowledged that he differs with the Vatican’s stance on some issues, but added that he “heartily” agrees with most of its positions. During his nearly hour-long papal audience, Obama said Pope Francis “actually did not touch in

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript. And it appears that the only "mere scraps" of evidence of baby Barack´s time in Seattle are

With high school seniors and their families now deciding where to enroll for college next fall, they might want to take a gander at research showing the best -- and worst -- values for a degree. The shocker in a survey by PayScale, a research firm that focuses on compensation, is that there are schools where students would have been better off not attending. Why? The 20-year net return on their college investment amounts to a financial loss, even when financial aid is included. Taking the time to get and spend money on a degree, in short, means you might actually find yourself in a financial hole. The survey may add to parents' doubts about

When atheist director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky promised that his epic "Noah" would be "the least biblical film ever made," that was not hyperbole. "Noah" is a brilliant, compelling, beautifully-mounted, beautifully-acted piece of storytelling conceived for the sinister purpose of leading people to believe that Christianity and Judaism are something they are not. (Snip) What does matter, though, is The Message. The Message is everything. And this is where Aronofsky is the snake in the garden. Using a $135 million, he and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.
