    I refer back to the article because there are charts.

    I would venture a guess, Wireguy, that most of the people polled don't know what they are being asked about. I'll take alot of heat for that remark, but I've never been polled on gun issues. I did get a TV poll list last summer, that I had to keep for a week, and got a dollar for doing it. No matter, you can walk down the streets, like Jay Leno does sometimes, and most people don't know basic history, government or math. But, I appreciate your post. Happy New Year. Charlie

    All depends on where you poll, who you poll, and what you ask.

    That's why I ended the headline with a question mark. I'm not buyin' it. We are now almost 50 years past the great gun act of 1968 and people have had a long time to assess whether it works. I'll not put anything past Americans though. They have been taught to operate on emotion only.
