    Confiscation is a recipe for disaster.

    100% so far have voted "No." See that, conservatives? We left-wingers aren't out to rip the 2nd Amendment apart and steal your guns. So how 'bout we all tone down our rhetoric?
    I really am paying attention to the results with just what you're saying in mind.


    Edit: No sooner do you say it's 100% and someone votes yes.

    My greatest concern regarding the discussion about gun control is that it there seems to be some support for requiring gun owners turn over certain types of weapons that they currently legally own. I'm curious how extensive this support is. I'm not asking if you think such measures will ever be taken. I also realize there's another poll similar to this one, but that one's in terms of what you're willing to accept. I'd like to know, if you could have it your way, would you want to see confiscation or requiring that gun owners turn over "assault" (whatever that means to you) and/or military style weapons?

    (hat tip to the member who gave me the idea for this poll, you know who you are )
    I think it could very well initiate a civil war or a war for independence. It would be a horrible mistake.

    I was under the impression that everything was going to be grand fathered in and this was only going to affect future sales and distribution of certain weapons.
    I am curious though, would any of you change your mind if this was a poll for
    "Would you like to see the govt confiscate legally obtained/owned Rocket Propelled Grenade Launchers and .50 caliber weapons?"
    Personally there are some weapons the average person shouldn't be allowed to own.

    When I first saw your comment I figured it was local Ya-hoo - I was shocked to discover he's a Federal judge.

    It wouldn't change my vote in the least. I'm not a gun owner but I've been around them all my life. The only thing you have to fear from any firearm/explosive is the same fear you should have from other cars on the road - the nut behind the wheel.

    for some, "from my cold, dead hands" isn't merely a slogan...
