The results were astounding – at least to someone as out of touch with America as MSNBC. Only 8% said "no." 92% said "Yes," with 4% of those being conditional. The results from almost 100,000 respondents were as follows:
88% - YES! The Second Amendment guarantees it.
8% - No, it’s too dangerous.
4% - Only for self defense.
This may come as a surprise to Coasters, but the übersocialistic delusions that occupy conversations at your cocktail soirees won't fly in mainstream America. Out here in the real world, real people take guns for granted – and they know how to use them. Witness the effect of the Jerry Brown zombie invasion of Colorado and its attempt to Californicate the Rocky Mountain State.
Americans are overwhelmingly conservative. They believe in low taxes, less government, and the right to do what the hell they please – from choosing their own doctor to choosing their own pistol. It's only the luatic fringe – Cali-Washington on the Western fringe and aptly named New England on the Eastern fringe – who harbor anti-American, pro-Washington DC sedition.
And I personally think it's time we did something about that.
