Poll: 69 Percent Want a Gun if a Terrorist is on the Run

According to a new Fox News poll, 69 percent of people said they would want a gun if an accused terrorist was running around their neighborhood in an effort to avoid police.

On Friday, the nation watched as the Boston area went under lockdown during a manhunt for the armed and dangerous marathon bombing suspect.  If you were in that situation, would you want a gun at your side?

Sixty-nine percent say if they were in a situation similar to Bostonians, they would want a gun in their house.  

That includes a large 88-percent majority of those in gun-owner households, as well as 50 percent of those in non-gun homes.

But of course, Senator Dianne Feinstein wants to tell people exactly what kind of gun they're allowed to have should this situation arise.
