We (Las Vegas) had a police officer killed a couple of days ago by a scumbag with an SKS/AK Clone/Who knows. One of the news stations is now taking a poll on whether or not Assault Weapons should be banned. The banners are ahead right now, so its up to us to rectify things.

Yea well we know what answer the news station is supporting.
We need to put a poll below that asking if news reporters should be banned.

Edit: Notice how the Brandy link is strategically placed under the "No" option on the poll? Thinking they can educate us ignorant folks.
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 12:20:41 PM EDT
such a crappy poll- there is no "undecided option".

It was 36% when I first voted. Now it's up to 39%. Thanks for the help.

Anyone else notice that the gun was most likely obtained illegally. It mentions the gunman had a criminal record.... You'd think that the neighbors could have helped out, but oh well...

Letter I just wrote to them.

I'm writing to you to let you know some facts about the "brady campaign" link that you have linked under the poll about banning assault weapons. The brady campaign has absolutely no problem using lies to accomplish their goals. They continually spread lies and propoganda to try and sway public opinion. I request that in the interest of responsible, UNBIASED journalism you either remove that link or add one to the NRA or even to the FBI website where actual facts can be found that show the Brady's lies. While you and I are obviously entitled to free speach I believe that as a journalists you should only report facts and let people make their own opinion.
By linking to the Brady Campaign website you are putting out lies that skew your poll and it is irresponsible to do so. If you would like I will Gladly pick apart any of the Brady lies you wish. It's easy to do so because I have truth and logic on my side. The Brady's have nothing but lies and a willing audience that seeks to villify anything other than a criminal. Some simple logic for you. Murder is already illegal. And Gun laws, only prevent those who abide by laws, however unconstitutional. Anyone willing to kill a police officer, is willing to break a gun law. I'm sorry to have to inject truth and logic here. But it was needed, I know the media usually cannot deal with that.

Link Posted: 2/3/2006 12:50:38 PM EDT
Up top "about us" they have a contact info tag.

Go to http://www.klas-tv.com and scroll about half way down. You will see the poll there. Click your "No" vote and the following page will have the results. For multiple votes just use the same link you have been using.
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 6:01:19 PM EDT
Friday, 9pm, as it stands right now.

No: 71%

Yes: 29%

Did they take the poll down? I was just finished voting(9th or 10th time,Ahem) and the poll disappeared from the site. They either caught on, or were embarassed by the results.
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 7:48:00 PM EDT
Not sure, some guy had posted a hotlink in the AR Discussion and never got to taking it down. I don't know if they traced that back here or if the poll just simply ended.

I think that one counts as a victory

They won't admit it, but WE all know it!
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 2:24:44 AM EDT
Another victory for arfcom.
Fucking brady campaign.........
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 5:31:52 AM EDT
I agree. I think we won. I'll keep an eye on the website to see if they have the guts to publish the results, but I don't think they will.
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 6:19:56 AM EDT
I doubt they will tell of the results as well..Let us know????
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 6:29:50 AM EDT
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 9:09:24 AM EDT
Even them taking the poll away is a victory. It shouldn't have been there in the first place. Time well spent IMO.
