New Gun Control Poll

#1

Post by Oldgringo » Sun Dec 16, 2012 3:08 pm

This poll is apparently current since the CT murders. It's about half way down the page on the right side.

So far, the nays are leading by some 3,000 votes. Check it out.

This is closer than it should be, even with the timing. I voted "no" for a total of 16,095 voting "no" and 12, 563 voting "yes." Please report the numbers if you vote.

No's - 16,151
Yes' - 12,636

Total - 28,787

Of course I voted no. They should just enforce what is already on the books. It is hard to believe that we are that close to loosing our rights.

What's disturbing is that the difference between No and Yes votes isn't changing appreciably, but it is becoming smaller as a percentage of the total votes cast.

16273 NO to 12750 YES
