Never mind that the NICS background check crashed several times in the past month.

So, now we know that CNN viewers are less likely than average to own a gun. What else did this incredibly stupid poll question reveal?

Yea like I’m gonna tell the communist news network that I own a gun so they can track my IP and report to the communist Obama administration that I own guns. Back door registration. No thanks.

Why would a gun owner even take this poll and why would the answer “Yes” ?

63% say they don’t A gun. I think many of those who responded “No” are like me. They own more than one gun.

I wish I could find reliable numbers by state but long guns have pretty spotty numbers in Michigan which is probably a good thing. I know there are lots here.

I don’t know many people who don’t own a gun. Most own a bunch. But then, I’m picky about who I associate with.

CNN users are notoriously liberal and therefore are liars by nature, so I expect them to say no even if they do own a gun.

Sounds like my wife’s doctor asking her if she owned a gun. She responded with, “why do you need to know that? I am here for . . . . . .”. Well it is a question we “have” to ask now. She told him it was none of his or anyone else’s business if she owned a gun or a tank. End of the conversation. If you have purchased a gun in a gun shop, filled out the paper work, they know what you have. REMEMBER the move Red Dawn??? The Cuban officer telling his officer to go to the gun shop and pull a certain form from the files, that told them who had guns!!! Even the enemy know how to find out who has them. THE FIX: purchase a gun from another individual who is selling one. No forms filled out. Only he and you know.

At this point, the BEST thing we need to do is contact those whores who sit in Congress and tell them to cut out the crap, back off the gun control whenever some nut job goes crazy, and stay out of our lives. And if you are Republican, don’t forget to tell them you want that bum “Boner” removed from the Speaker’s position.

You can go to this website:

http://thomas.loc.gov/home/thomas.php

For contact information on the strumpet of choice.

CNN doesn’t give a rat’s @$$ how many people own guns. Right now its 2 to 1 that do. If it was lower they would say “See, only a few people own guns, the Second Amendment is not significant anymore” Right now, they will say “Look at ALL those dangerous guns out there, we have to make it harder to get one”.

“Of course, I don’t own any guns!”

Why should I own a gun?

The police have been found, through the Supreme Court, to be faultless, when they do not come to my rescue.

Didn’t President Obama, the most wondrous human being ever to be birthed, promise in his first term, that he would create a civilian army larger than the military we now have?

Hasn’t he, as our President, call for civility?

And, didn’t president Obama do this:
“That makes the Federal Government complicit in the deaths of these children, and in fact an accessory to their mass murder, by forcibly disarming (with the very real threat of prison) all the teachers, all the staff, and any parent who may have been on school property. That stupid law guaranteed the shooters would meet no immediate armed resistance, which is exactly what is needed to stop such an attack.”

I guess that President Obama isn’t so much a Chicago Jesus, after all, huh?

If you're worried about being tracked/noticed/targeted by the Feds then posting on FR is hardly the place to be.

That gives me a great idea. Get together with all your friends and pick a “designated buyer.” Let him purchase all the guns for groups of 10 or 20 persons and then “resell” them to his buddies. Then only one name appears on the Fedgov list and if anyone ever comes for the “arsenal” he has assembled, they REALLY won’t find it.

When is a gun not a gun?

"These advances, typified by cartridges such as 8mm Lebel ( 1886 ), 7x57 Mauser, .303 British, and 7.62x54R made many smokeless powder rifles manufactured in the 1890s quite capable of accurate shooting at long distances. In fact, many antique smokeless powder cartridge guns from the 1890s can still compete satisfactorily in target shooting events alongside modern guns."
