Countervailing force against tyranny
I'm somewhat in the "all the above" camp except that I think the likelihood of "need" varies across those choices. My primary issue with the poll question is the word "need." I should not have to have an expressed "need" but rather I have a constitution right to own a firearm that provides me and my family with adequate protection against all of those risks and threats.

I just ran across this Chuck Woolery video (I had never heard of him before). It is amusing at times, but the points made are very valid. Worth 5 minutes to view. Chuck Woolery on Assault Weapons - YouTube
I couldn't vote because there isn't a choice of "OTHER" or 'ALL OF THE ABOVE"
I don't own one but have been saving for one for about 8-months. They have become very popular with hunting in my area. My buddies keep telling me I need to catch up with these modern-hunting times. I'm a bit short yet and now, with the feeding frenzy and price gouging taking effect. Barring a winning lotto ticket, it doesn't seem likely anytime soon.
I wounder why they keep mentioning clips, and alluding to their calling them a magazine
They also keep calling the AR's Assault Rifles and not ArmaLite Rifles?
Tried to go on Buds and they are offline? What was it Bob Dylan sang: "the times they are ah changin....
My reason is because I wanted one. I would have accepted because it is my right to have one. Neither of those being an option, I cannot vote.
(And whoever said it is a personal interpretation of the 2nd Amendment, it doesn't take a rocket scientist or an attorney to interpret SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.)

While this might not be a #1 reason.... How about the same reason we "supposedly" have the Department of Homeland Security, terrorists.
Also no one has to give any reason since it is our right... Nuff said..

Well this is going to become the norm now I guess. Seems dealers like Buds, CTD, Dicks, some-etc are all going to buckle under.

The government shall not infringe upon the 2nd Amendment.The Preamble to The Bill of Rights
Congress of the United States
begun and held at the City of New-York, on
Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.
THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.
RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.
ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.Amendment II
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.I said, "My Rights come from a higher power." The 2nd Amendment clearly states that it "shall not be infringed". This limits the power the government has over the Right all the way to the point of it does not have any power over the Right what so ever. The government has no authority to infringe upon it. Rights don't come from the government. Therefore, how ever I got this Right we know it must of came from a power that had the authority to tell the government that it shall not infringe upon this Right. That means the Right came from a power that is higher than the government or more simply put, a higher power.Amendment X
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
If you "completely reject the acceptance of a higher power", then how can you believe that your Right comes from the government? If the government is issuing you your Right, then you are accepting that the government is a higher power than you because it has the authority to give and take away Rights, which would mean that the Right does not belong to you because you don't have the power to give the Right to yourself...You don't have the authority. The government would have an authority that you don't have, which would make the government a "higher power" than you. A "Right" by definition is something that a person is guaranteed to have. If you are guaranteed to have something, the government can't take it away. If the government could take the Right away, there is no way that the Right could be guaranteed to you because you would no longer have it. "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Women have not always had the right to vote. Blacks have not always had freedom. Those rights were given to them, not by birth, but at the pleasure of the government...just as gun ownership.
