A 30-day poll.

Do you believe that law-abiding citizens giving up their semi-automatic rifles (including hnting rifles, plinkers, targe rifles etc.) would make children (such as those in the elementary school in Connecticut) safer?

Or do you think they would be safer with law-abiding cittizens keeping their guns?

In particular, do you think YOU keeping your semi-auto rifle, might keep one child safer, some day? If so, would you keep it?

You forgot to add doesn't own a semi automatic gun to the list. I have no plans to run out and buy one either because I have no use for it.

Haven't needed one in 35 years and I could probably never bring myself to shoot another human being. Besides we are all going to die eventually, I have no interest in living my life in fear until that day comes.

That sounds a bit sick minding, I don't think I would trust someone like you with a gun. Besides where I live I have a better chance being struck by a driver. You gonna shoot the driver to save my life too?

And from the sound of your past posts I think you might still have your head stuck in the war which really is a shame.

Would you kill a single child to get rid of all semi-auto guns. How about 10 kids, how about 100 kids?

We can do lots of polls like this!
