It's interesting that I have never met anyone that was in favor of a "assault weapons ban" that knew what the hell an "assault weapon" is.

I voted. If you asked if they should ban assault baseball bats, these idiots would say yes too. Liberals have no clue.

Obviously charge cards and the internet should be banned as they played an instrumental part in the Colorado killer getting his weapons and ammo. Maybe cars should be banned also as he used one to get to the movie theatre. Hell I bet he used some sort of an iThing also.

Amen to that! There are a couple of transferable "assault" weapons at my local shop, a AK for 29,000, a M16 24,000 and a BAR 60,000 I wish I could afford a assault weapon

After banning pistols and semi auto rifles England is now working on cricket bats and knife buy backs (no kidding) and their crime rate keeps climbing.

When I visit the in-laws, I really miss having that tiny little LCP in my pocket.

Voted NO on the poll by the way, do'in my part.

At $20,000, they effectively are banned.

Absolutely. A shame that the media either can't get that through their heads, or they try to confuse the general public on purpose.

They are on crack at those prices. Last I looked, transferrable M16s were between 14,000 and 19,000.

No 62%
I'm happy and shocked at the same time. Makes me wonder how they are able to push through any anti gun laws if even Politico is on our side.

Even though its now 63% No/33% yes the fact people can vote multiple times can sway the vote.

There was some Democratic Congressman on Fox Sunday saying the Colorado's Shooters assault weapons were obviously only made to kill people.

His shotgun was a Remington 870 and is there is probably one in 20% of the homes in this country.

Little did so many homeowners know they had an assault weapon in the house?

I would be very curious in a straight across the country vote how many people would support a permanent AWB

This. That's as much as my car, though I guess I could use an assault rifle to commandeer a bus to get to work or something (just kidding!). :wow:

We should change the language of the debate. We should never discuss "assualt weapons". We should call them home defense weapons.

Voted. Still at 64% no and 33% yes, 1% maybe.

This will be turned up side down by every idiot who has the ability to publish anything.
I wonder how many other "Holme" got a call asking them "Is your son a mass murderer?"

Will they end up banning pencils? Anyone can turn a pencil into an "assault weapon." I've been studying krav maga for over 8 months. Are they going to ban that next? If I can't use a gun for protection you bet your ass I'm going to be lethal with my bare hands.

YES, as long as I can keep the "self defense" weapons of my choice, i.e. AR, AK, M4

As much as I would love to see this...will never happen.

Its the equivalent of trying to change the language of the abortion issue to "medical procedure."

And frankly, I work in a building full of very liberal people. Liberal to the point I was called in my boss's office for the SAK with the 2" blade I carry which I have used a thousand times to fix our copier.....yet someone was worried I was carrying a "weapon" on the premises.

Liberal to the point when I asked one of them would they rather have a man break into their house late at night and brutally rape and beat them to the point where they needed plastic surgery or shoot him dead. They said they couldn't go through life knowing they had taken a life - yet somehow the trama which follows an attack of this type apparently magically goes away

Liberals only hear the word weapon.

But we can change the "description" as "self defense" rather than "assault". One step in the right direction .............. DOC
