There was a question, I answered and it showed the results.

Hope that answers your question.

Usually USA Today has a few thousand goobers of their own ilk to start off their polls, but they seem to have messed-up on this one.

An opinion poll on the substance of the U.S. Constitution?

Layman opinions on legal matters do not mean excrement. Might as well seek opinions about the weather or how people "feel" about science or mathematics. This is an example of polling at its very worst. What is the objective of the pollster? Of course, that is the basic problem with this kind of nonsense. The pollster has an agenda.

Really enjoyed the comment concerning the Montana girl who successfully defended herself against two armed criminal aliens. Hope that the knowledge that she did the right thing keeps her from having any psych problems down the road.

Here’s another comment. Okay - which Freeper wrote it? (I have seen numerous similar points on FR):

“Argh! Is the poll a trick question? It asks, “Does the Second Amendment give individuals the right to bear arms?” The answer is No, it doesn’t - because it only AFFIRMS the right to bear arms; that right is a God-given right, and is above the laws of man. But if I choose “NO” on their poll, is that going to tell them that I feel people don’t have a right to bear arms?”

“Layman opinions on legal matters do not mean excrement.”

Hmmm...is that why maybe the E.R.A. amendment failed ?

Ya think maybe the Right to Vote Amendment was kinda dumb too ? Imagine dumb laypeople voting for who shall represent them and for all kinds of amendments to State Constitutions...

If anything that poll shows that 98% of the people have some common sense when it comes to upholding the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution

Unfortunately the only poll that is going to matter is the one of our nine kings in black. (I’m not sure if Ginsburg is not a man in drag). The blew Roe vs Wade and the First Amendment who knows what they’ll do with the second.

All I can say is whatever replaces this government; the role of any court will have to carefully defined to prevent more dictators in robes.

You are correct. If the government can “give” rights, it can take them. The BOR tells the government to back off.

Actually, the Bill of Rights does not “give” any rights to anyone. The Constitution, and in particular the Bill of Rights, serves to define and secure rights inherent in our humanity. The Declaration of Independence, the fundamental founding document of our Republic, identifies the source of those rights. The Constitution embodies the foundational principles of our government, the purpose of which is to protect and extend our rights.

The question seems framed wrong...

It is, the writer thinks all rights flow from government, rather than are protected by it. I guess he never read the Declartion of Indepdence, or for that matter the "preamble" to the Bill of Rights.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

The conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added.

Exactly.
The idiots don’t even know the constitution.
The 2d guarnatees that the right SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED by any government, it does not give anything.

Of course we know that the correct answer is really “No”. I voted “Yes” nonetheless.

"Of course we know that the correct answer is really “No”. I voted “Yes” nonetheless."

It is unfortunate that so many are ignorant that rights come only from God, but what can you do, when they are 'educated' in govt. schools?

Yes, but it failed miserably,thanks in part to Joe Bannister (the IRS thug that 'went straight') and his huge email list :o)

It is difficult to determine if you had a 'point' because none of your response relates to the subject at hand or my post. The same 'dumb laypeople voting' that you seem to so highly admire elected and reelected Bill Clinton. Enough said for common man (or woman) wisdom.

If you truly believe the 98% factor in subject poll has any relationship to reality or real people, I have genuine sympathy for your plight.
