      but the last polling I saw had the AWB having at least pluarity support if not outright majority support even in TX

      People like their guns but I've found most of those people if you talk slowly and rationally to them (and reassure them this is not a gun ban) support the ideas behind the AWB

      •  the thing about those polls (1+ / 0-)

        is they rarely, if ever, define "assault rifles."

        so who knows what people actually support.

          and the president's proposal were fairly specific except for the AWB and there's a lot of support behind that enough that I think that that can be used as a starting point

          I think if you get specific you'd still find support as most people neither want nor see the need for an ak 47 or m 16 or any other miltiary hardware
