Imagine getting an anonymous phone call. The caller asks you questions along the lines of “Do you keep expensive jewelry in the house?” or “How many sex toys do you own?” Would you give an honest answer?
How consider the question “Do you own guns?” or “How many guns do you own?”. Better yet, imagine a person living in California or New Jersey, states where the governments have been trying to eradicate legal gun ownership for decades. Would the answers be even remotely likely to be true?
That’s why anti-freedom organizations commission leading polls — to use invalid or misleading “data” to marginalize their opposition. In the minds of our enemies, being a congenital minority, such as left-handed or gay or female (even if the latter is an actual majority) is great — it’s a ready pool of self-identified victims they can pretend to represent. But minorities by choice — people who set up businesses, who home-school their kids, or who own inconvenient property like guns — are their enemies and subject to suppression by legal or illegal means.
