73% of Americans Agree: 2nd Amendment protects Individual Right

You may already be aware of the results of the February Gallop Poll, but if not, yes it's true. 73% of Americans know the simple truth that yes, the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms. For those of you on the 27% side of the issue (20% say no, 7% don't know), please investigate the facts & then come join us.

91% of Gun owners, and 63% of people who don't own guns know that it is an individual right, proving that there is a strong correlation between gun ownership & intelligence. I'm not sure if it's because intelligent people naturally realize that it's smart to own a gun for protection of ones family from thugs (as well as being useful for a lot of fun shooting sports), or if owning guns over a period of time simply causes an increase of intelligence. Either way, go buy a gun (be sure to get some safety training first - there are many excellent NRA certified instructors all over the country) & you'll at least look smarter than you did before you owned one.

Personally, I'm a little upset that 9% of the gun owners don't know that the Second Amendment enumerates an individual right.

Same here. You'd think they could at least investigate the issue a bit being that they happen to own one. :)
