AWB (and other bills) polls show massive disinterest in new gun regulations
 
AWB: https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/s150
Registration bill: https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/hr34
Increase age to purchase: https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/hr65
all sales have bg check: https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/hr137
all sales have bg check: https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/hr93
Gun buy back: https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/hr226

All of these bills are opposed at a rate of 90% or greater. People simply don't want new gun laws.

Now here's a bill that would repeal the ban on guns in school zones: https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/hr35

95% support for this bill.

Popvox is non-partisan and is directly affiliated with govtrack.us More important, these are the people who are actually writing their congresspersons.

Vox populi - "voice of the people"

Unfortunately, democRATS don't believe in the Vox Populi.

Wouldn't it be ironic if a "Terrorist" hacked into the Drone Control system and use it to make a drone strike on..............well, you get the picture. A man can dream, can't he.;)

It doesn't matter if he had 99% support, we're NOT a Democracy, we're a Constitutional Republic and as such we have to follow the Constitution and the Bill of Rights for ALL laws that are passed so that they won't infringe on any of our Rights. ;)

We need to inform our politicians there is a difference between Democracy and Mob Rule. A democracy has a set of rules that we follow. The set of rules that we follow must be changed before we make laws to the contrary.

Mob Rule is when politicians do what ever is popular regardless of little irritations like the constitution or the bill of rights.
