    Two-thirds of U.S. weapons owners would 'defy' a federal gun ban

    By Jennifer Harper - The Washington Times January 20, 2013, 05:05PM
    Source ref: Two-thirds of U.S. weapons owners would 'defy' a federal gun ban - Washington Times


    An 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: "If the government passed a law to take your guns, would you give up your guns or defy the law and keep your guns?"

    The response: 65 percent reported they would "defy the law." That incudes 70 percent of Republicans, 68 percent of conservatives, 52 percent of Democrats and 59 percent of liberals.

    The poll of 1,008 registered U.S. voters was conducted Jan. 15-17.

    I might say one way or the other in private, but this is one time, I'll not broadcast my intentions on a public forum.

    You can't break a law that hasn't been written yet.

    There are certain things that we do not want to know with regard to our member base on DefensiveCarry.com and what laws they would (or would not) obey.
    And there are also certain things that you may not want showing on your Internet Permanent Record Card anyway.
    In Short....we don't want to know who would defy what...so read....but, don't answer the question.

    I would agree that it would not be wise to say one way or the other.

    A "law" which would eliminate our Rights, specifically those Rights as described in the 2nd amendment, would not be supported by the Constitution.

    The question doesn't apply to those of us who have already sold our firearms.

    The government cannot "take" what I no longer possess.
