I wish there was a way to challenge these in the future before they get in the ballot.

Who gets these questions on the ballot? What do they do with the results of the "poll"?

"If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government... The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair."     Alexander Hamilton

I think the underlying ideological assumption is that any gun dealer not licensed by the state is an illegal trafficker.

 

Just like the ideological assumption that every single gun owner is just a terrorist in training.

If you needed proof that 90% of Cook County voters are mentally retarded, here it is.
