I believe the poll is a stinking lie. That's what I believe.
No way is that stated result consistent with what the vast majority of Americans think about their gun rights.
I’ll do one final clarification of my position in this thread by quoting myself from another thread:
I have yet to see a red flag rule that I would support. However, I can imagine something along those lines being a good thing if it was purely temporary - in the same way police can hold you in jail for a short time without bringing charges.
“Are you willing to enter a new era where anything you say, can and will be used against you, whether you’ve committed a crime or not?”
We’re more or less already there willing or not.
Were more or less already there willing or not.
What does that mean? That we should accept the status quo simply because that state of affairs now exists?
That's nuts. I think we can all agree that two wrongs don't make a right. Passing a law that fundamentally infringes on a God given right, is grounds to dissolve the government.
