    Hit this poll: Ban Assault Weapons on Politico

    Team-Please hit this poll so we can turn the tables on Politico. We all know these polls don't mean squat, but I'll be darned if I'm going to let the anti's and leftie websites win. Scroll all the way to the bottom, poll is on the right side of the screen.

    51% saying no to assault weapon ban; 45% saying yes to ban

    Keep the votes coming, pass it on too.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I voted in the poll. Also read some of the comments about whether assault weapons should be banned. Check out this response from former AL congressman Artur Davis.

    "Before he is made into a poster child for gun control, its worth noting that James Holmes is proof that maniacs don't always leave a mental or criminal trail, and that no manner of background checks would have kept him from building his own arsenal.
    *
    And if the point is that the kind of high intensity firepower used in the attack is too accessible, its worth asking the following: does the most ardent advocate of gun control seriously doubt that if assault weapons were banned tomorrow, they would only be pushed underground? Does anyone question that if drugs and prostitution flourish outside the law, a black market on guns would thrive just as easily? Is there any denying a murderous sociopath would find a way to crash that black market, and do some version of what James Holmes did? And finally, is there any remotely constitutional theory of gun regulation that would ban the garden variety machine gun that did its own share of the killing in Aurora?
    *
    It’s momentarily appealing, and perhaps shrewd advocacy on the part of the left, to blame the legal gun culture as the actual culprit for Aurora, but it’s also a stunningly off-base illusion."

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Site is 'Down for Maint' - oops, guess they did not like the response. LOL

    Freepers does this a lot with polls. It really disrupts the local or regional media outlet when everyone from the country chimes in, and does not support the socialist media montra.
    Socialism Kills! Time proven, with a very large body count! We are a Constitutional Republic....... not a Democracy, get it correct!

    Is that typical to run a poll for only 24 hours or just when they are losing?

    I missed the vote

    Oh well, I hope they get the message (they won't).
