Fox News Poll: Two Thirds of US Gun Owners Would Defy Federal Ban


Washington Times:

An interesting little factoid has emerged from a new Fox News poll of U.S. voters: Personal sentiments are strong and defiant among many U.S. gun owners.

Question 46 in the wide-ranging survey of more than 1,000 registered voters asks if there is a gun in the household. Overall, 52 percent of the respondents said yes, someone in their home owned a gun. That number included 65 percent of Republicans, 59 percent of conservatives, 38 percent of Democrats and 41 percent of liberals.

But on to Question 47, addressed to those with a gun in their home: “If the government passed a law to take your guns, would you give up your guns or defy the law and keep your guns?”

The response: 65 percent reported they would “defy the law.” That incudes 70 percent of Republicans, 68 percent of conservatives, 52 percent of Democrats and 59 percent of liberals.

We are more sheepled than I thought. I remember reading that when the “turn them in” law was passed in Australia, the overall defiance rate was 80 percent, not a mere two-thirds.


What guns? Oh, those guns. It was terrible, the one time I don’t tie them in, the canoe overturned. I cried. We dove the site but couldn’t find the guns in the fine silt. And they weren’t insured. Sad really.

All government officials put there hand on the Bible and take an oath to uphold the Constitution, now they choose not to. There is no way I would comply with these liars.
