1) Sometimes, the odds of something make it just not worth considering.

Either one, is an assumption on our part and either one might put you in danger, though I'd put it on roughly the same odds as a meteor strike.
2) Not answering polls is only one small issue. Most of us will never be polled anyway. Acting like owning and enjoying firearms is something we should be ashamed of, is completely different.

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
