Keep this in mind when the unilateral involuntary disarmament crowd tried to portray the no-compromise position as extreme:
An interesting little factoid has emerged from a new Fox News poll of U.S. voters: Personal sentiments are strong and defiant among many U.S. gun owners.
“If the government passed a law to take your guns, would you give up your guns or defy the law and keep your guns?”
The response: 65 percent reported they would “defy the law.” That incudes 70 percent of Republicans, 68 percent of conservatives, 52 percent of Democrats and 59 percent of liberals.
I find it fascinating that even most liberals and Democrats who own guns aren’t dumb enough to buy into the idea that a forcible government monopoly on violence is a good idea.
