I saw the poll on the main page, and I guess I misunderstood what it was asking.
I thought it meant, which would I take?

Take my last firearm.
Take my only television.
This is a no brainer.
One can always catch their favorite program online via the internet, at a bar, or even at a buddys house.
Get rid of my gun though, no thanks.
I can't borrow that in a time of immediate need from the internet, the local bar, or a buddies house.
Which reminds me I have a 50" Theaterview bigscreen in my storage room sitting doing nothing the past 10 months.
Maybe I should Craigslist it and use the proceeds to buy another gun.
Wife watches it some. I have not watched a whole program in yrs. Not sports or anything.
Carry 24-7 or guess right.

I'm with you guys. Other options if there is a show on, from library to a friend. TV not that great anyways, pick up a book, take a walk. Once you loose your last firearm, no replacement. I guess the outcome of the pole should have been obvious.
I know someone who gave up cable to pay for CC permit.
My wife and I dropped cable tv many moons ago due to all the repeats, media propaganda, and general filth Hollyweird has deemed "trendy" these days.
Of course we'll keep our firearms. What are we supposed do if we decided to keep the idiot box and our home is invaded by mutant dweebs, throw the tv at them... Geez.

LOL! I don't even have a television, but if I did, it would be the first to go! Can I even vote without a television? Do I need a TV? I might have one someday...but that would lead to a cable bill and other things I don't need to get into now.
No brainer in my book, get rid of the TV. A TV won't save your life or give you peace of mind. A TV is also a lot cheaper to replace than a gun.
I've never owned a tv that would bring (used) even one tenth the price of "my last firearm", so who would even want to buy my tv?
My tv stays on Fox News 90% of the time...the rest is distributed between Wednesday Night at the Range (Outdoor Channel), Texas Rangers Baseball (the wife is the baseball fan) and the local weather when something is going on. I would hate to give up the "white noise" at night since I wake up all hours of the night to catch bits and pieces of the Fox News stuff I like to hear (mainly Beck...he's da' man). But, like most others on this forum, I probably spend the majority of what used to be "TV time" sitting in front of this stupid computer, endlessly babbling about guns and solving all the world's problems
I'll keep the gun!
Ummm... this is D.C. .com not TMZ.com.
I dont even have to view the results. Tv's are gunna lose.
Only a Liberal would sell the gun and keep the TV.......sheeesh.

I know I'll be able to buy anouther tv. But its getting more difficult to buy a weapon.
