A Fairleigh Dickinson poll of 863 registered voters asked "In the next few years, an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties," do you agree, disagree, or prefer to hide under your bed with no opinion.
An astounding 30% said they agreed, 47% said no, 18% said they didn't understand the question, 5% said they were unsure, and 1% tore up the survey and ate part of it.
So what did poll takers think the results mean?
Dan Cassino, analyst at the polling company concludes, "The differences in views of gun legislation are really a function of differences in what people believe guns are for. 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."
Wow. Dan. That's a stunning affirmation of the obvious. The truth lies likely a little deeper.
Citizens who want the constitution left unmolested fear an escalated response to those who would usurp and destroy hard won rights and freedoms. And since the DNA of the USA contains the seeds of revolution would it not follow that the question is not if, but rather when?
