For anyone interested ... a USA TODAY POLL on the 2nd Amendment to vote on.

I got this email this morning and voted immediately. Over 1.5million votes overwhelmingly in favor of 2E right being an individual right.

USA Today

Please vote on this gun issue question with USA Today .
It will only take a few seconds of your time. Then pass the link
on to all the pro gun
folks you know. Hopefully these results
will be published later this month. This upcoming year will become
critical for gun owners with the
Supreme Court accepting the
District of Columbia case against the right for individuals to bear

First - vote on this one.

Second - launch it
to other folks and have THEM vote - then we will see if the results get

Vote in the USA Today poll - click on the link

The Question is:

Does the Second Amendment
give individuals the right to bear arms?

Vote here:

The poll is funny. The 2nd protects the right, but doesn't give it.

that is from November 2007. I vote in it about once a month as it pops up here or elsewhere.
$0 of an NRA membership goes to legislative action or court battles. Not a dime. Only money contributed to the NRA-ILA or NRA-PVF. Second Amendment Foundation is a solid alternative.

grymster get the win.

Poll question is flawed (and 2 years old). The 2A doesn't give anyone anything... unless it gives a warning to the government.

It definitely needs some enforcement power, that's for certain.

2007 - kind of retro and kind of necro.
