I predict this poll will be pulled soon. If not it will have a huge disclaimer: NOT A SCIENTIFIC POLL and be buried many layers deep on an PBS site.

But - don't 90% of Americans support anti-gun measures as outlined by the president and his party leaders? :rolleyes: - I reckon this PBS poll is the REAL statistic and feeling of Americans.

The surprise is that PBS would put the results up at all.

At every opportuity, EVERY member on the US Congress should be asked

if they took the oath upon entering office that they would support and defend the

Constitution of the United States of America...against all enemies, foregn and domestic.

 

(And this goes for every press conference the president holds as well..the "press" should Ask him this direct:)

.

If the answer is "yes", then they/he should then be immediately asked this question:

 

Why then are you NOT supporting the people's right to keep and bear arms as

defined in the Second amendment to that Constituton?

 

See what they say, and then (you and everybody you know) vote accordingly at

the next election opportunity.

And they would hem and haw, and cite Heller and the reasonable restriction mentioned in that decision - while ignoring the "in common use" language in both Heller and Miller.
