    I have a feeling it would be different if the poll was on Fox...I'd assume most gun owning republicans don't watch CNN.

    I didn't see the "None of your damn business" option there.

    I agree.
    I would love it if Fox went and did the same polls as CNN for a few weeks as a test, just to see how different the results would be.

    The results would be the same on FOX or any other news network.

    Those numbers are the reason our gun rights are in constant jeopardy
    in this country.

    Most people don't own a gun and couldn't care less about gun registration.
    (Sure, everyone in your town may own a gun, but that's not all of America.)

    Couple that with the fact that a lot of gun owners don't vote and is what's
    killing us.

    This is why it's very important that ALL gun owners go to the poles and
    and vote. The NRA is not your proxy, YOU must go vote!

    I had to vote "no". I don't own a gun. I own many guns.

    Really. Who owns a gun?

    What a crappy poll. :supergrin:

    They're testing the waters just in case Obama's next move
    is to go after our guns.

    That way they can spout a bunch of statistics from polls.

    Right now theres:

    Carry in National Parks legal in 5 days
    2d Amendment SCOTUS case being heard next month
    VA is having a buttload of gun bills being heard and passed
    Quite a few states are starting to pass, "If it's built within the state and stays within the state, it's not legal for the Feds to regulate it" laws

    Those that want to continue the further restriction of firearms are losing. They must keep the noise up to continue the agenda so you're going to hear more, louder and more shrill things about guns for probably the rest of the year.

    If Republicans take control of one or both Congressional houses these will die down. Right now there's the possibility of passing VERY restrictive laws on a federal level, perhaps only until November, though.

    I wish I had a few hours to kill...the thought of voting yes a couple of thousand times comes to mind.

    (you can reset your external i.p. quickly and easily after each vote)

    Around these parts, a 35% turnout of registered voters is considered a good showing. Very discouraging.

    So, 127,000 people voted no.

    That means there are at least 127,000 possible future victims out there...
