    Why in God's good name would they post an option such as ...

    Where kids play? What the hell kind of falsity is that.

    Last I checked when I was 12 miles deep on the appalachian trail in GA I didnt see another human being. A black bear yes but a human no.

    Last I checked in addition I remember thinking I may have to pull my gun out incase a black bear charges me due to being close to something I should be close to and not know it.

    Last thing I was thinking was gee...

    let me hunt a child and shoot one for sporting fun!

    I just love the way the Communist Appeal twist the wording of this question.

    Should local leaders fight any state law allowing guns in parks?

    Yes, we shouldn't have guns where children play.

    No, we have a constitutional right to bear arms.

    We're slipping! Get to work!

    45%

    55%

    I sent them an email about the wording of the poll as well.

    Dear WMC-TV,

    I am writing to you about the poll currently running on your website.


    Should local leaders fight any state law allowing guns in parks?

    Yes, we shouldn't have guns where children play.
    No, we have a constitutional right to bear arms.



    Could you possibly skew the wording of the poll any more to make it a little more biased? Where children play? Nice try at making an emotional appeal to get more people to answer yes. Your poll is the equivalent of asking:


    Should local leaders fight any state law allowing guns in parks?

    Yes, murders and rapists shouldn't have to worry about their victims being armed.
    No, we have a right to defend ourselves against murders and rapists.



    Sounds like you and a few others at WMC-TV should go back to journalism school and learn what it means to be fair and balanced. A proper poll would have been:


    Should local leaders fight any state law allowing guns in parks?

    Yes.
    No.



    I hope to see better from you and WMC-TV in the future.

    Thank you,

    xxxxx xxxxxxx

    Good letter. I like the way you turned it around and slanted it the other way in order to highlight their bias. Not that they will accept it, but good job nonetheless.

    Sorry guys, looks like I killed the poll.

    Mr. UW Dawg,

    Thank you for writing to us about this poll. I will be sure to pass your comments about the poll to the rest of our news department. I have also immediately removed the poll from our website.
