Just to show you how really really unreliable an internet survey is I voted NO.

I then started my laptop and voted NO on that as well.

Then i voted using my wifes account on this computer.

I've never read the second amendment, have no clue what it is about and don't even live in the USA.

If you rely on this type of survey to make your point you must be pretty damn silly.

You voted "no," huh, DP?

That's kind of hilarious. The question, as stated, is effectively meaningless, anyway, since whether one answers yes or no has no relevance to how the courts view the right of the Federal government, the Several States, or local governmental authorities to regulate firearms. Which is what one can expect from USA Today--a newspaper which aspires to be a 30 minute television news program.

Its not kind of hilarious to take a sounding of public opinion.
It is a matter of some interest.

He voted against blind adherence to an outmoded belief
while admitting that he has no clue as to what it is;
i.e., voting BLINDLY.

Is that like proving your global stupidity, dadpad ??

David, This poll does not reflect any kind of public opinion.

I have already proved that one person can skew the results. A determined person who loves guns could theoretically contribute to the poll many many times. The poll does not say how many people have responded It may be that only 10 response are recorded. 2 voted No and 8 voted Yes, of those 8 one person may have voted 7 times.

Hardly a reliable sample.

A sane person would have deduced that from the outset david.

So that 's your test of mental health, huh ?

In any case, Setanta is correct that only the decision of the USSC
will control the results of this dispute.


Anyway, having forsaken the outmoded belief, dadpad,
what will u do if man or beast starts attacking u ?

Are u a fanatical pacifist ?

If the poll had asked if Hillary should be the next pres dadpad would have borrowed his neighbor's laptop, gone to the library, and Internet cafes to vote as many times as he could for her.

USA Today is a liberal ragsheet - I'm quite sure they are dismayed at the result of their poll, which I believe to be a true assessment of how America feels about 2A. Even if you don't like guns.

VOTE ON THE THUNE AMENDMENT
WAS ONLY POLITICAL THEATER
for DEMO's RE-ELECTION.


The Demos woud never have exposed their beloved discrimination
as to WHO has the right to defend himself from violence,
to the peril of federal pre-emption.

Surely, Demo Leader Harry Reid and a few other hypocritical Demos
wanted to impersonate freedom-lovers who support the right of self-defense,
for their next elections. Then thay 'll claim that thay supported
the 2nd Amendment. If Lugar and Voinovich had not betrayed
the Constitution, then some Demos woud have changed their votes
to insure defeat for 2nd Amendment freedom in the Thune Amendment.

It was all an exercise in deception and Democraticly controlled futility.
Coming from the left: it was too good to be true.
It was fake from the beginning. It was a misadventure
in ILLUSIONS in the Theater of Hypocrisy

for the benefit of Democrats' re-election efforts.

So where we are is where we were before Thune.
We still have the USSC waiting to extend the reach of DC v. HELLER,
in the forthcoming NRA v. CHICAGO case. That is real.

@dadpad,
Obviously you are not very observant as to the results. It clearly states that over 3.6million people voted. Also you didn't need to go to all the trouble of voting from other computers as you could vote as many times as you like from the same computer. I'm sure this does skew the results but seeing as how you could vote as many times as you like I am sure some of the no's were the same people who voted many times. Now the overwhelming number of yes votes (97%) is very indicative of how the public feels about the meaning of the 2nd Amendment and there is no refuting those feelings.
Thanks for your time.
