According to a recent CBS poll, just under half of American gun owners list “protection from crime” as the main reason they’re tooled-up. Just five percent of respondents chose “protection from government.” So much for the antis’ contention that American gun owners are paranoid proto-insurrectionists. The CBS poll asks these “five percenters” why they’re Uncle Sam-averse . . .
Note: the CBS poll doesn’t define “strict gun laws.” A respondent could well believe that “more strict laws” means harsher penalties for criminals who use a firearm in the commission of a crime. Not gun control.
Anyway, if you’re amongst this government-suspecting group, which one of those answers — or one of your own –best describes your worries? If it were me, I’d write-in “The possibility of government genocide.” That’s Mr. Paranoid Proto-Insurrectionist, bub . . .
