There was a post about a survey at
The selection is on yes on gun control,before you had to click on your answer.
They've moved it to the top on the right.
Im not sure but I think the yes numbers is smaller than before

You can vote every time you dial up because you gat a diffrent IP adress,and yas I have been voting like a democrate(multiple times!)

This burns my ass!Keep track of the yas votes.

Put it in your favorites and vote every time you log on.Where down to 64% from 75%
Since they changed it  we are down 10%
over 2000 had taken it by then so it shouldnt have varied more than 2 or 3% if someone wasn't messin around with the vote.So lets do it right back 65 yes votes since 3am!  give me a break.
They took the poll down last #'s
3480 total 65%no 35% yes

They obviously did not like the results they were getting so they figured they would help by making the default 'yes'.  They figured we would be as dumb as the democraps in Fla.  HA! WRONG!  By the way it is 65 percent NO at this point.

I just went there, we're really giving them hell. Thanks for the link, keep posting it! Hitting it every time you log on is great advice.

"You already voted!"

Got this message when I tried to vote again.  Sounds as though they didn't like the results from their other poll...  Didn't count my second or third votes.

Got to love the culture war...

Some musings:

I can't help but notice how loaded these kind of questions are. I mean, I am sure we all can agree that there is a problem in this country with thugs and crazies having guns. Unless you are actively involved in the issue, though, that is what a reasonable person would assume "gun control" means. Those of us more politically astute know the real meaning of the term, however.

It stands to reason that many people who would be against most of the current legislative efforts - if they only knew the real story - would vote that the US needs more gun control. Heck, I almost did. The US DOES need more gun control. Just not the kind the Antis like. We need good solid databases of thugs and crazies and better financed education programs about gun security (states governments should help finance Eddie Eagle and such in the schools, IMO). This would improve the instant check system and reduce thefts and accidents. Heck, the money used for "buy back" programs could go a long was towards offering gun safes to lower income households for when they are not home.

Heck, if gun control is a tight shot group, I am all in favor of it.

Why don't they word the questions like this: Do you think restricting certain cosmetic features on firearms, such as bayonet lugs, threaded barrels, or pistol grips has any effect on criminal use of firearms? Or how about: Do you think trigger locks will stop drugged up nuts from holding up liquor stores? Or even: do you think banning .50 cal rifles will have any effect on crime. (maybe even show a stat of their use for such endeavors - probably something like .0000001 percent) the media loves sticking these polls after loaded stories related to the issue.

I mean, when I have engaged even non - gunners in conversations about the irony of how one day the threat is cheap handguns and the next day it is several thousand dollar, very heavy rifles even a neutral person usually realizes the true intent of the antis: pitting gun-owner against gun owner to divide and conquer.
