vote please

Please vote on this gun issue question with USA Today. It will only take a few seconds of your time. Then pass the link on to all the pro gun
folks you know. Hopefully these results will be published later this
month. This upcoming year will become critical for gun owners with the
Supreme Court accepting the District of Columbia case against the right
for individuals to bear arms.

First - vote on this one.
Second - launch it to other folks and have THEM vote - then we will see if the results get published.
Vote in the USA Today poll - click on the link below.
The Question is:
Does the Second Amendment give individuals the right to bear arms?

Vote here:

No... just a survey done by USA today... I was a little dissapointed after voting too! I was expecting fireworks and champagne after clicking yes but that was a no go!

Yeah but in the vote

Yeah but 841743 people have voted on it and 97% say yes......that means 816,490 people said yes.....and the other morons said no....besides this vote was from 2007 I believe

Well it was November 2007. But still worth putting our two cents in I suppose

is that it means diddly squat. All you have to do is have the NRA say "Go Vote" and the thing is meaningless. What we ought to be concerned about is nationally commissioned polls that are scientifically valid, polls from Roper, Gallup, etc. When you look at this kind of poll, the rate is about 65% believing individuals have the right to gun onership. This is a nice majority, but it really isn't enough. It could swing easily. In rural areas the percentage is more like 75%, as you might suspect. But the problem is, the urban areas are taking over from rural areas in terms of percentage of the population. Clearly, compared to the 19th century, the percentage is headed down, not up.

Clinton served both terms. I don't think it hurt him. Bush Sr signed the assault weapons import ban. Don't forget that we have no friends.

wow

Clinton is on record saying it was a mistake and the majority of the Dems that voted for it were not re-elected. the NRA smeared them. Later today when I get free time here at work I'll try to find the youtube 2 part video which proves this.
