In light of the shootings that took place this morning at VA Tech, ABC news is conducting a poll on gun control. I think it is important that our opinion be reflected in this poll. Guns don't kill people. People kill people. No amount of gun control will ever remove guns from the hands of criminals. I hope you will go to the following link to vote:

Can be found approx. a quarter of the way down the page...Vote Is Shooting Grounds for Gun Control?

When I took this poll it was at the fallowing results.

No. Violent shootings are isolated incidents and it's irresponsible to link them to gun control. 34,523


Yes. This shows the violence that can occur when someone has access to handguns.
14,175


Huh! What the hell are you talking about, oh well I’m going back to my pot!

YA, right...  given the current trend in voting, I'm suprised the poll is still up on their website.  I would have thought it would have quietly disapeared by now.
