    Thanks for the heads-up. It's a dangerously worded poll, BTW, for anyone who knows the posture of the case: it asks if the SCt should uphold or overturn the DC gun ban. Of course, the DC Cir. has already overturned the gun ban; the Q before the SCt is whether to uphold or overturn the DC Cir's ruling.

    Anyway, be careful how you answer.

    Erich - I see what you mean. Since it does ask if you want to see SCOTUS uphold or overturn the DC gun ban - I'm thinking we should vote to overturn the gun ban. If it had indicated upholding or overturning the lower courts ruling, then upholding would be the right answer.

    Unfortunately SCOTUS could care less what public opinion is but I voted anyway.

    Voted. The way the poll is worded, the vote is to overturn, if you want the gun ban to go away.

    But Erich is right, we want the SCOTUS to confirm the decision of the lower court.

    Voted!

    80% to overturn
    20% to uphold

    This decision will have far reaching implication. I pray we have the right court to make this decision.
