Twitter is huffpo-lite, so of course the vote will be heavily skewed. They may as well have asked at the DNC national convention.

Since Twitter polls are self-selected, they are mostly meaningless. No science behind the conduct of the poll.

Like others, I don't do social media. It is a vast cesspool.

Sorry...no Facebook, twitter, instagram, Snapchat, etc. the closest I get to social media is shooting forums like CalGuns.

It is interesting to see all the folks who can not wrap their head around someone who does not have a Facebook account.

Guys -

You don't have to sign up for twitter to vote in this. I just went to the web page linked above on a pc and voted. We are still still losing by the way with 10 hours to go. Now they added a new poll to ban bump stocks. Scroll down the page to find the 2A poll.

I set up accounts on twitter and Facebook. Just have trouble getting on either.
So like others here I don't participate!

You can have a Twitter account without sending out tweets or publishing information about yourself. Heck, CalGuns has as a Twitter account. I’d bet every GOP figure has a Twitter account.

I was skeptical of Twitter too but it is just a way to get info from sources you subscribe to. Nothing comes at you unless you ask for it. If we expect to have our voices heard on 2A then perhaps it is worth seeing how many debates we are missing there.

No question there are millions of younger folks there we can influence, but only if we show up. Otherwise it becomes a leftist echo chamber to reinforce their views. Trump opened the door for you. Step through. You can always bail out.

Nice progress. They will report the results on the news tonight they claim. Poll open for 3 more hours. Lets finish strong..

Note the NRA seems to be supporting a ban on bump stocks so that other poll may be a lost cause. Lets make sure the "Repeal the 2nd Amendment" poll has proper results though.

Currently 46%. So they could legitimately say "A majority of those polled (54%) want the Second Amendment to be modified or repealed."

Fake news. This the same type of poll taken a few years ago where an overwhelming number of people support bicycles on crowded BART trains. Poorly worded question by Libtards to get the consensus that they wanted.

This like taking a poll in Russia on how they like Putin. Stop feeding the snakes. Boycott FB, Twitter, etc.

Hey, look at that. The vote closed so we can see the results. I'm a little surprised actually.

12% Repeal
41% Modified
47% Left Alone

They're at it again, eh? It was TV-5 that first starting beating the tin pot about the bullet button and look what we got thanks to them.

Now this. Are they intent on having themselves declared enemies of the republic? It would seem so but I doubt very much they'd be willing to put their lives on the line for what they push on the air.

It's good to see that while the OP was about generating votes in a public opinion pole, most people's reaction was say "I don't twitter". That is very encouraging, at least we know that calgun members trusted to share their opinion on the use of social media...

Go ahead repeal the 2A. Doesn’t matter. 2A merely acknowledges a right that predates the CONUS. Confirmed by heller. Like saying the 1A gives us the right to freedom of speech or religion. So if 1A repealed then we can ban religions? No.

Just as the militia is referenced several times in the CONUS it existed prior to 1787/1789. Just as the 2A is meant to be an armed citizenry as the best defense against tyranny.

The precursory clause still exists, the defense against tyranny. The right to defend against tyranny still exists. The right implies the means. Sent then means deny the right.

Besides any attempt to repeal it only further validates its necessity.

Eliminate it altogether or change it is 53%.
That's not a win.
But, this is a vote of social media idiots in CA so I take the result with a salt mine cave full of salt.
