    I'd figure less than 5% want a total ban.... with an additional 10-20% who are mostly ambivalent, but could be easily swayed to support such a ban

    I hear people in forums talking like they are everywhere.
    In reality I've never met one in my life.
    Judging by what I've seen over the years on discussion websites, there are quite a lot of them. Read sometime about the great unwashed hanging out in Vienna and some German cities after WWI, many of which became early supporters of National Socialism, and you will think you're reading about the hordes of collectivist know-nothings taking up space in modern America.

    To me this always comes across as dishonest, fear-mongering propaganda.

    So I thought I'd try to ask an honest question in hopes of getting an honest answer.

    In your humble opinion, what percentage of all US citizens (of legal voting age) do you think want to make private citizens owning and firing any and all guns an illegal act?

    Do you think it's an insignificant amount? Less than 5% of total population? Do you think it's a significant amount? Upwards of 45-50%?
    Somewhere in-between? Is it an honest concern, or just a hot-button phrase used to basically subdue any "real" discussion in favor of propaganda and fear?
    Here's the way this works:

    1. They pass a law making "reasonable" restrictions on firearm ownership
    2. Something bad happens
    3. They make another law with more restrictions
    4. Something bad happens
    5. They make a law with more restrictions

    and so on and so on.

    Like I've said before, the gun grabbers don't want to ban guns. They just want to prevent people who might use them from obtaining one.

    The gun grabbers NEVER say that they want to ban all firearms because they LOVE the idea of government owning them but they hate the idea of civilians owning guns. For some ****ed up reason they figure that a government paycheck makes people pure of heart and conscience and that lack of a government paycheck makes people violent and incapable of self control.

    Large numbers of people, though realistically, the constitution will never be amended in regards to the 2nd amendment.

    Ok?What does that ramble have to do with my post?
