Professor Glen Reynolds aka[url=www.instapundit.com] Instapundit[/url], of the U Tenn law school makes this observation about 2nd admendment online polls … “Posted 2/17/2002 02:21:31 PM by Glenn Reynolds GUN POLLS: This online poll from Vote.Com asks if "Sniper rifles" should be eliminated. With over 3000 votes, it's running at 99% "no." (That despite the rather loaded question, since a "sniper rifle" is basically a "hunting rifle" with a scope, for all practical purposes.) Meanwhile, this poll from the American Police Hall of Fame, asking "should gun owners be licensed and fingerprinted" is running at 96% no, though with no indication of how many votes. These polls are self-selected, of course, but I've noticed that online polls usually go this way. At the very least, this means that pro-gun folks are a lot better organized online than antigun folks (something that has been noted many places in the past), and that alone is an interesting datum. The other interesting datum is the way these online polls tend to disappear without a trace when they turn out differently than their sponsors hope. “ Professor Reynolds has written pro gun articles in National Review, WSJ, Boston Globe, and writes a bi-weekly article for the Fox news website – Straight Talk. I like being “better organized than the anitgun folks. “ Mike

Yes better organized, more dedicated to the cause because it is the right cause and believe it or not, we are the vast majority.
