    Tons of gun boards have voted on this particular poll. Check it out, something actually came of it, lol.

    WASHINGTON -- "By astounding margins of seven to one, local media Internet snap polls demonstrate overwhelming public support for yesterday's federal court decision overturning as unconstitutional Washington DC's ban on private handgun possession," John M. Snyder, Public Affairs Director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, noted here today.

    DONE,

    Did my voting ;)

    I also liked the quote placed in one of the responses written.
    Thomas Jefferson: "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined or determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man"

    Couldnt have said it better!

    My goodness, I have been reading the comments and have yet to come upon one supporting the ban! It's about time Americans come out and speak up. Hopefully the people elected will start listening as they are the ones in trouble if they dont!

    Glad to see Americans are still around!

    Has anyone else viewed the video from this site? The mayor of DC is "outraged" that the court struck down a law that "has helped reduce gun violence in DC". What a load of crap!!

    I'm calling BS on that comment!!! :screwy:

    My guess is that some of the mindless are thinking that the people who are committing crimes with guns are actually worried about committing a crime???? My question to them is how is a ban on guns going to reduce the number that are used in crimes? .... Thought for the day ... maybe they should require all merchants to have loaded handguns redily available for themselves and their employee's.
