    26% of gun owners favor semi-auto rifle BAN!

    According to this CBS poll.

    http://m.cbsnews.com/fullstory.rbml?...0&videofeed=36

    It actually said 74% oppose a semi-auto ban... But that must mean that 26% are either unsure, or in favor...

    And if you're unsure, you might as well be in favor...

    While I don't necessarily believe poll numbers, politicians do.

    And they will do what they "feel" most "concerned citizens" would want

    You know, for the good of everybody.

    If you haven't written a letter, called, faxed, emailed, and sent a postcard to your elected reps, you ain't doing enough.

    You're right..my math is off... 26% is still way too much...

    And, if I'm on our side, and can make such an error... Those on the other side will err as well, accidentally, of course.

    Since you're both right, I suggest everybody just relax.. There's no war effort on to take your guns away... "These are not the droids we're looking for..... Move along."

    Ya think?

    The media can skew poll results any way they want, they just poll the people they know will give them the results they want and throw out the rest. They have their own agenda, kiss the king's a_s!

    Random calling polls are more reliable than others, though questions can be asked in a way that will skew results, usually accounted for in margin of error disclaimers.

    Regardless, these are the numbers that will be used against us... FOX "check this box" polls won't be used for us, because the margin of error is greater than 100%.

    So, how do you counter it. And what are you gonna DO about it?

    Not surprising, since even someone like Feinstein owns a gun, and she's pro-ban.

    That's what I mean. It can't possibly be that high.
