CNS NEWS: 65% Of Firearm Owners Won't Give Up Their Guns To New Laws, Poll Shows
January 25, 2013

By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr.
A recent poll finds that two-thirds of gun owners will defy new restrictions on firearms.

According to Reason.com 65 percent of respondents said they would "defy the law" to keep their guns if the federal government passed a law to take them away.

Question 47 of the poll asked those with guns in their home the following:

"If the government passed a law to take your guns, would you give up your guns or defy the law and keep your guns?"

Sixty-five percent reported they would "defy the law."

Question 46 asked more than 1,000 registered voters if they had a gun in the household.

More than half (52 percent) of the respondents said "yes," someone in their home owned a gun.

This included 65 percent of Republicans, 59 percent of conservatives, 38 percent of Democrats and 41 percent of liberals.

As CNSNews.com previously reported, sheriffs across the nation have gone on the record saying that they will not enforce any new gun laws that they believe are unconstitutional.

All the more reason not to register my guns. If they don't know I own any they can't come to pick them up.

This is precisely why I hope Feinstein keeps up her pathetic attempt at an aggressive ban. I hope her bill goes to vote, the last time it did the Democrats got slaughtered in mid-term elections. It will be hilarious.

Then why may I ask has Biden said an assault weapons ban is not a priority and Reid won't touch it with a ten foot pole?

I'd have to see an article where Biden said that. As far a Reid, he's a chicken- liver- belly afraid to touch it because he knows Vegas and other Nevada areas will not re-elect him if he dared.

I wish you paranoid NRA supporters would wake up. This gun control on assault weapons will prevent many killings. If we'd use your line of reasoning (like when you claim criminals will still get guns and there still will be killings), we should then just throw out all traffic laws too, because drunks and speeders will still kill people. Instead you choose to do nothing!!

Instead you contrive in your minds that you need weapons such as the AK-47 or the Bushmaster in the future to battle some imagined tyrannical government, and insist that Obama is coming for ALL your guns!

The NRA is not the same NRA that existed back when I was a kid. They cared about gun safety then, but today they are nothing more than lobbyists who serve their masters---the weapons manufacturers.

If you are outraged at Obama for his steps toward improving and enforcing existent regulations, in addition to common sense regulations to reduce gun violence, then all I can say is you just hate the President! Every step he outlined has the approval from the majority of Americans...as well as gun owners, even in the NRA.

That kind of thinking was already proven wrong in Newtown. You said, "This gun control on assault weapons will prevent many killings." The assault weapon ban you refer to IS still already in place in Connecticut and has been since 1993. They didn't drop their gun ban when it lapsed federally. As far a drunk driving goes, the laws are now very tough. Even with those laws in place, we still have as many deaths from drunk driving as ever. They lowered the level that constitutes "drunk", but it really didn't matter. Some things just don't have an answer. You just have know when to say "when". That's not being lazy or apathetic. It's just how it is.

You neglectedd to mention that for people who already owned weapons such as the Bushmaster semi-automatic before the 1993 ban, the weapons were grandfathered in and they were allowed to keep them provided they do the correct paperwork and were already legal owners. Apparently the punk killer's mother had done her home-work. Or are you insinuating that she got her gun collection illegally, which goes against other reports that she was a legal and responsible gun owner.

http://www.cga.ct.gov/2012/rpt/2012-R-0362.ht...

"in 1993, the legislature prohibited possessing, selling or transporting assault weapons with limited exceptions. The 1993 act also gave those who lawfully possessed an assault weapon before Oct. 1, 1993, 9 months to apply for a certificate of possession to continue to possess the weapon. The act made a number of changes regarding assault weapons."

What percentage of murders are committed with "assault" weapons? That should pretty much end the conversation.

I left nothing out, because grandfathering wasn't the point. Whether owning it legally or illegally, it just didn't matter. That's all I'm trying to say.

You will get everything but the solid facts is Hummingbird reply's. you'll probably here how 27 people would be alive or something along those lines (when a shotgun would have done the same amount of damage).

California later renegged on the "grandfathering" of previously owned assault weapons. After first promising perpetual amnesty in return for registering, which was required under penalty of imprisonment, the state did a turnabout a year or so later and sent all registered owners a registered letter demanding immediate surrender of the guns they owned. Failure to do so meant fines and imprisonment on felony charges. Never trust the powerful anti-gun lobby. Give them an inch, they'll take a mile. Their word is worth nothing. Their promises of lives to be saved are equally false.

We are talking about mass shootings. Why do you have have to come back with such a irrational juvenile response? You can't shoot 20 people with a revolver in a few minutes. Let's be very clear about this. Nobody is going to come into your homes and take your guns, that's just a bunch of right wing fear mongering, but I guess that's what you guys thrive on isn't it?

We still donít know exactly what guns were used in Sandy Hook. I am having a rational conversation. Letís look at the statistics, the facts. What percentage of killings are done with assault rifles or long guns for that matter? You of course are going to find that an overwhelming majority of murders committed with guns are with handguns. Are you prepared to have that battle? You will lose.
