Armed revolt

A survey of Republicans found nearly half agreed that “an armed revolution in order to protect liberties might be necessary in the next few years.”
The poll, from Farleigh Dickinson University’s Public Mind, surveyed a random sampling of 863 registered voters and had a margin of error of plus-minus 3.4 percentage points.

It found 44 percent of registered Republicans believed an armed rebellion could come in the next few years. But only 18 percent of Democrats and 27 percent of independents agreed.
Moreover, only 24 percent of Republicans believed new gun laws were necessary — compared to 73 percent of Democrats. Bipartisan legislation on gun control is not likely in the coming days, one political science professor at Farleigh Dickinson said, in a press release on the poll.
“If there was a bipartisan moment after Sandy Hook to pass gun control legislation, it’s past,” Dan Cassino said. “Partisan views have strongly reasserted themselves, and there’s no sign that they’ll get any weaker.”
The difference in views is due to partisan differences in beliefs about what guns are for, Mr. Cassino said.
“If you truly believe an armed revolution is possible in the near future, you need weapons, and you’re going to be wary about government efforts to take them away,” Mr. Cassino said.

You know..if I truly felt this way, I too would stock weapons. I wouldn't go about showing them off tho or getting them all sited in at the local range.

If I was talking to someone that actually believed that armed confrontation is coming....I'd be quite supportive on ownership of auto weapons. However, if they are just repeating what they have heard, in the hopes that they too can walk around with a fully automatic assault weapon and high capicity mag, just so that they too can play cowboy or girl..then I have no use for them at all.

I even know people that thinks that there are secret prisons and stockpiled trains filled with handcuffs and apparel, all ready to round up the poplulation and take them off to some unknown location. Fuckin wierdos.

However...if it really goes down? Get Rush, right off the bat, okay?
