Looks close but insufficient to carry a constitutional amendment.

My wife is opposed but open to argument. However she wants to go to a range and try shooting this year before we repeal it. I fear if she gets a taste for it she'll never be persuadable.

Ah well

It might be easier to get five guys to interpret the 2nd amendment differently than to repeal it.

15 - 10 against is close? That's 60/40 for a no vote.

Vote count changed was 50/50. I think if I could raise $50 million I could persuade America and move the numbers

I don't know, it took the union's $100 Million on Prop 32 to persuade just Cali.

and the NRA's pockets are deep.

If the 5 Yes votes that would put up money contribute $10 million each, you have your start up fund for "persuasion" squat!

more than 1/3 say NO GUNS AT ALL. if the question were more moderate, say, severely limit gun rights, perhaps we could swing it...

Doesn't #2 fit what you are saying?

Just because you repeal the 2nd amendment, does not mean there would be no guns allowed at all. Repealing the 2nd Amendment would not mean a total ban on all guns?

shoulda been "no, but with very limited gun rights". I fear people may fear amending the constitution.
