Of 1000 Americans Polled, Most Would Ban Home Printing of Guns 578

An anonymous reader writes "In results that may signal some discomfort with the enormous DIY promise of 3D printing and similar home-manufacturing technologies, a new Reason-Rupe poll finds that an otherwise gun control-weary American public thinks owners of 3D printers ought not be allowed to make their own guns or gun parts. Of course, implementing such a restrictive policy might be tad more difficult than measuring popular preferences." This poll is of only 1000 people, though; your mileage may vary.

    "Most Americans wouldn't have joined WW2 (at least until Pearl Harbor)."

    Most americans weren't alive at the time of WW2

    "Most people don't know which came first, the Revolutionary War or the Civil War"

    Maybe if it was given the correct title "The War of Independence" people would know it was first

    "Most states have passed anti-gay, one-man/one-woman marriage laws."

    They had that on the ballot in November (One Man One Woman) - It failed. Then the other day the Governor signed the bill giving gays the right to marry in the State of Minnesota

    "Most people generally fear change of any sort."

    Only pennies - Quarters and dimes can be used in vending machines

    But Houston has MORE blacks and hispanics, yet lower murder rate. Your race card is out of the game here, so it must be cold weather. Whomever voted you +3 must forefit their moderation rights.

Today is a good day for information-gathering. Read someone else's mail file.
