    I dont see that poll option.
    I see where it offers:
    It's a Constitutional Right & no regulatioins are acceptable.

    Either these people are obtuse or they really hold this to be dear.
    How are they obtuse?

    I'd say that in a modern society, the guns are not necessary.
    This, your opinion, has no meaning whatesoever.

    But do we have a "modern" society ?
    The people at the "town hall" meetings say NO.
    How does that follow?

    I'd say those 40% probably have a much better idea about what a right is and the importance to have it recognized than your lot.

    I don't doubt the realization of what a right is is lost on them.

    I think it's more of a "I'm better than them" ideology.


    Cause if the government were to try and limit their right to free speech... they'd be up in arms.. (not literally as most of them we know like to be victims)

    To me, the scary thing isn't the 40% who believe in upholding to the absolute the rights and liberties of the individual. It's when someone claims that a right is no longer needed in the "modern era". Well just what other rights aren't needed in the modern era? Speech? Press? Religion? Property? Searches? Privacy? Redress? Protest? I mean, once you open that flood gate of rights no longer being needed, where does it exactly end? Well I know where it ends, horrible Big Brother police state; but it makes me wonder if people actually consider the consequences of their actions.

    As I noted before, and as the OP has refused to address, restrictions on and the degree of protection for the right to keep and bear arms should parallel those of those rights found under the 1st amendment.

    I have no doubts that a lot of them wouldn't mind such a police state.

    Yeah, and that's fine. The problem is that I would mind such a police state.
