???? I couldn't vote because none of the choices made any sence. The first one was talking about "recreation" and that's not what the 2nd Amend. is about. The second choice was better but still not my point of view and all the rest were just plain B.S. They needed one that said "I don't agree with the NRA's views and fully believe that a citizens Firearms Rights "Shall not be Infringed". " Now that one I'd vote for.

It covers more than just the recreational thing. I agree that it could have been worded better but it isn't too bad. I hit it!

I said “strongly agree” because I certainly don’t think they are too extreme.

There was a real flaw in the pole, however: they didn’t leave an option for people (like my self, to a certain extent) who think that they compromise too much, although I still support their general message (and am a member).
