Those libtards have already fucked the issue over. They have split the vote between two questions of the RTKBA supporters, leaving the anti gunners with one choice.

I believe you are mistaken.

"citizens no longer are obligated to retreat from an attack if they're somewhere they have a legal right to be, such as a public street"

niceguymr,
I may be mistaken, if so I will admit it. IT LOOKS LIKE I WAS WRONG, SORRY GUYS.
I recall hearing Andrew P. Napolitano comment on it this weekend and he said it only applies when you're on your own property. He may be IS mistaken as well, but Napolitano seems to know his stuff. He was (or is) a NJ Superior Court Judge, but that doesn't mean he can't be wrong also.

In the 5 minutes between my post and -Absolut-'s, the poll changed like this:
Yes, I feel less safe now. +31
Yes, I feel safer now. +22
No, the law does not change anything for me. +14

Somewhere some libtard is having peeps hit the poll in the same manner that we are.

The only people who should feel less safe are those who are planning on attacking a fellow citizen, breaking into a private residence, carjacking, etc.

Are there really that many rapists, murderers, carjackers, and other violent criminals out there that 50+ percent of the people on the poll reply "I feel less safe"?
