Nearly two-thirds of Americans say they believe the Constitution guarantees each person the right to own a gun, according to a poll released Sunday.
In all, 65 percent said they thought the Constitution ensures that right, and 31 percent said it did not. The question had a sampling error of plus-or-minus 3 points.
Men and people living in rural areas were most likely to say the Constitution guarantees the right to own a gun.
Nearly three quarters of men (72 percent) said they believed so, versus 26 percent who did not. More than half (58 percent) of women said they believed so, versus slightly more than a third (35 percent) who did not.
That question had a sampling error of plus-or-minus 4.5 points.
Among rural dwellers, 73 percent said they agreed, versus 64 percent and only half (50 percent) of city dwellers who thought the same.
That question had a sampling error of plus-or-minus 7 points.
Well, there ya go. The people have spoken. Just don't ask them what type of guns people should be able to own. Zumbos of the world with their sporting clay guns will have the rest of us disarmed of everything.
EDIT: Can one person with a gun make a difference, or is that just being inane?
