    The scary part is that many people would see anything wrong with the premise of serveral of her questions--for instance, this one: "Or are they thinking about preventing people accused of domestic violence from getting a gun at a gun show without a background check and then bringing that gun across state lines?" Let's see "guilty until proven innocent", violating state law (depending on whether background checks are required in that state), and violating federal law for starters. Does anybody other that politicians pay attention to polls anyway?

    Her revised question:
    “what do you think is more important — to protect the rights of gun owners, or to protect the safety of everyone from gun violence?"

    That's not even in the apples and oranges level of comparisons. Vilifies gun owners in a sneaky way, doesn't it?

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Omero commits the logical fallacy of the red herring (and possibly others) - demanding by her question that the respondent can't have gun owner's rights respected AND still protect everyone from gun violence. Very sneaky and underhanded, framing the question this way while whining about how other polls are misleading. Sounds like she's studied the use of the Big Lie quite thoroughly.

    The scary thing is that many people think this is reasonable logic. Its preemptive law enforcement.
    Which is more important - to protect the rights of people who are capable of committing a crime, or to protect the safety of those that might be preyed on? All of this before a crime has been committed.
    Do we castrate every man because they are fully capable of committing rape? Arrest every woman walking down a sidewalk because they are capable of selling their bodies?
