Gun control poll...
#1
I find it entertaining that most people oppose handgun bans, but in this poll are in favor of semi-auto bans when the handgun that most people would realistically want for self defense is a semi-auto by nature. Do these people understand that these go hand in hand? Are there really that many people stuck in the 70's Charles Bronson\Dirty Harry revolver fantasy? I have nothing against revolvers, but for most people the semi is just a far more effective choice (sorry, but I don't subscribe to the line of thought that Semi Auto's are too complicated for women to use). Why is DA, Semi Auto and Auto so difficult for the world to get their heads around?

The only thing I take from most polls is that the general public is easily influenced by emotions and the media. They rarely think for themselves and often go out of their way to avoid thinking about important topics. They also become very attached to uninformed opinions backed by little or no evidence or logic.

Exactly, they want "stricter gun laws" when they don't even know what the gun laws are......Laughable
