What an odd poll

Got a link to this from the U.S. Gun Owners’ Association Facebook group: a USA Today poll, asking "Does the Second Amendment give individuals the right to bear arms?"

It’s 97% yes as of right now, with nearly a million votes cast. That means even liberals are voting yes.

But, y'know, duh. The question isn’t whether we have the right – it’s what restrictions can be reasonably placed on that right. For example, should Dave Casper be allowed to own an A-10 Warthog?
