    Poll on gun issue at USA Today Please participate and forward. Thanks. The new Attorney General has already said this is one of his major issues.

    This takes literally 2 clicks to complete. 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 arms.


    First - vote on this one.


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

    When posting things like this, it helps to check the dates. This was a poll done February 15 2009, more than 6 months ago.

    And, unfortunately, as written, the answer to the question is, NO.

    The Second Amendment does NOT give individuals the right to bear arms.

    That right is pre-existing. The Second Amendment is to prevent the government from infringing upon that right.

    In "Heller vs D.C" the Supreme Court rules (5-4) that the 2nd Amendment applied to individuals (as in "the people"). Unfortunately, they did not go any further than that, and did not rule on what the government could, or could not do to "regulate" firearms (read, "infringe on"). That may come up some time this year, as several more 2nd Amendment cases are wending their way through the courts (based partly upon the Heller decision) and may well be addressed by the Supreme Court before the current session ends next year.
