Wow. Not a lot of love for polls here...

I think that at least in this given sample, what this tells us is that people don't understand gun laws at all, and have the impression that you can just buy a bazooka at your LGS. I've been amazed talking to people the last few weeks who favor gun control but know nothing about current gun laws, including that their is a background check at all...

I think people can be against a certain type of weapon if they see it as unneccisary; my uncle, a lifelong hunter, is. He's been taken in by the idea that "no one NEEDS that." As if need matters as regards a fundamental right enshrined in the constitution. At the same time though, I think that the license requirement puts people's minds at ease. Our society is quick to trust those who have "credentials." So, in their minds, a licensed person is safe (which is true) because of the license, but doesn't need certain types of guns...


It also gets me how many people think you can but automatic weapons willy-nilly...
