    Last night while sitting in my recliner at home,a political survey called.I usually hang up on them but thought why not? The standard questions were asked then right at the end they asked "how many guns do you have at home?" That was when I hung up on them thinking... never again. Am calling the house rep. who did this survey today. (a democrat)
    Anyone else ever get this question? Sure gave me a strange feeling.
    Looks like it's coming a little at a time...drip...drip Hardrock

    Oh, but that is an innocent enough question that would never be used against you...:cool:

    I haven't had a land line in over 10 years, so I haven't been polled.

    However there is no reason in the world why they "need" to know how many guns, or cars or ducks or kitchen knives or dogs or tupperware containers for that matter, that you may have. Who volunteers that information?! :eek:

    "Yes, I have seven firearms. I usually keep one by the front door, one by the backdoor, one in the kitchen and then three in the closet up stairs in the spare bedroom and then one in the nightstand." :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot over?! :mad:

    I agree with dillinger, it's no ones business how much on anything you have, especially politicians, instead they should be asking you what can they do for you or the community to make it a better place to live. Wonder why that question never gets asked in those things??

    Frekin' A dude.

    I never had anyone ask me a question like that .

    I'd hang-up on that one also.

    I don't trust anyone asking those type questions especially in this current political climate.

    Questionnaire at my doctors office asked the same question.

    Does the household have guns in it?
    How many guns are in the household?
    How many are handguns?

    I answered NOYFB to each, doc didn't know what the acronym meant, I had to explain it.

    :D And here I thought I was the only one using that acronym. :D




    For phone calls, ask the person how many wives they have (especially effective if the caller is female :rolleyes: ).

    Another possibility is to ask the caller how many of their children they have killed this week.
    - - That implies a zero answer to their question, but who cares?

    I still prefer the NOYFB. :D

    What kind of Doctor where you seeing? Was it a gun Doctor? If not I don't see the relevancy of the question.

    Not much choice here in nowhere Oregon and I'm not going to do the 120 mile round trip to Eugene to see a GP or Internist. All the other questions were lifestyle hand health related.
    The ones about alcohol I had fun with....

    Do you drink alcohol? :D Every day!

    How much alcohol do you consume on a daily basis? :D I can't remember, but enough so that I can't remember how much.

    What time do you start drinking? :D What time is it now?

    That's funny right there.

    The last time I got my physical the gal, a young nurses' assistant, asked about my alcohol and then asked to put a number to how many I thought had in a past week to ten days. She said my number was "a lot to her" and I responded that I was twice her age of which I had just added to with a birthday over the last weekend, outweighed her by a good 100lbs. - and that I wasn't there to discuss my drinking.

    See seemed to clam right up and get on with getting the doctor in there after that exchange. :rolleyes:
