    Gotta love the way this is worded, if you don't think a "gun ban" is a good idea, the response is "heck, no", sounds like people who support their 2nd Amdt. rights are seen as children and are being treated as such. The proper response for that should have bee "No" or "No, we need to arm the Citizens further to keep this from happening again".
    As for the response of "Yes, but only for idiots"...what the hell were they smoking when they wrote that? Who gets to decide whom is considered an idiot?
    Anybody else feel slighted on this, or am I just being too sensitive?

    It is a push poll and a good argument against direct democracy, the rule of fools by fools.

    Want to really have some "fun", read the comments. Sad.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    They shut down voting already. Guess they didn't like the results.

    No, your not being overly sensitive. The wording of the poll is crass. and makes anyone who votes "no" as reactionary.

    Also makes me think that these kind of stunts are being perpetrated by the very same people that want guns banned. You kow, the type of people that say how dangerous guns are and all that... they're probably behind all these shootings in the first place. How else do they get away with it most of the time?

    I still think a ban on stupidity would be better...

    ...Another point most of these kinds of "reports" fail to mention is that FACT that if you are an anti-gunner and your house gets robbed or you get mugged, you seem to drift toward the pro-gun side for defense.... hmmm. Strange.

    Something to think about when facing a push poll is that it's designed with an aim to quote it on a later nightly news segment, when anchors will inform viewers of the particular public opinion that the organization specifically structured the survey to discover.

    One might deign to disable the site's cookies and send a few extra votes towards 'Heck, no' just for good measure.

    Welcome aboard Sietch Woolsey . Lots of good people and information here.

    Spent a lot of time in Minnesota as a kid on Lake Vermillion and points north - many fond memories. First learned gun safety and learned to shoot there.

    Cookies cleared each night also so I can start the day fresh.

    Wasn't the AK-47 used fully automatic? Then what the hell does it have to do with the assault weapons ban!? Idiot media once again misinforming people onthe true facts.................... And whoever is a gun supporter who is "rethinking about banning guns" should give up any guns they have, for being so ignorant, for all we know is that these AK's are coming from cuba.
