The right to defend one’s property, one’s liberty, and one’s life is a right that pre-exists any government. It is a natural right of all human beings, something that is recognized by the Bill of Rights, rather than granted. Thus I’m not surprised to this survey show that a majority of Americans would engage in civil disobedience, should the government act against the Second Amendment.

I periodically share public opinion data, either because I’m encouraged by the results or because I think that the research helps show how to frame issues.

Examples include polling data on personal retirement accounts, the dangers of big government, support for spending caps, and viability of class warfare tax policy.

        Polls are the most fallible way to collect data, and are essentially meaningless because of how simple it is to get respondents to answer one way or another. go ahead and pull some stats out of your ass

    @ L.A. You equate YOUR right 2 life. What abt the “chilodren’s right to escape abortion??

    • L.A. Powell says:

      We weren’t talking about abortion but if you want to throw in a red herring in this argument, so be it. So you are arguing that a collection of cells has the right to life, but school children aren’t worth protection? Sounds reasonable..
