  •  These polls don't exactly support gun nut theories (0+ / 0-)

    with 42% supporting the right to own assault weapons, and I am CERTAIN that number would rise dramatically if the remainder had a firm understanding of the arguments in support of the 2A.  I know that many within that remainder do in fact understand those arguments, but I'd bet my bank account it is a solid minority...  Most people that can't imagine civilians needing these sorts of weapons are ignorant of the contextual arguments...  For those of you who call those arguments crazy, I guarantee you'd be forced to call significant majority of the population crazy if everybody really understood the debate...

    •  Heh. (1+ / 0-)

      Yeah, the NRA and it's fellow gun enthusiast organizations do such a lousy job promoting their cause.

      By the way, welcome to Daily Kos! I love Wal Mart, too!

      Calling other DKos members "weenies" is a personal insult and therefore against site rules.
