    Somewhat surprising.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    I don't put a lot of faith in polls, even so that's good news. A little suprising but I can see it.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    I read a story on Reuters a little while ago that said that over 50% of people were in favor of banning high capacity magazines and restricting the sale of military-style rifles. I'm looking for the link but not having any luck.

    Hey, I voted on that poll, at least 40 times..................

    The problem is not what 'We The People...' want, but what can be knee-jerked rammed through at the State and Federal level (with the MSM's backing) unless we keep raising our voices and holding our Politicians (of any party) accountable.

    Besides here, go out and 'Communicate' with all of those elected slugs that are supposed to represent you!

    - I don't put a lot of faith in polls either. There have been numerous times that they've been wrong when it came down to the vote. The other problem with some of these polls is that they may make people complacent. For example, some pro-gun people may see this and think that their 2A rights are not in danger... which is never the case.
