Remember that the poll is posted on an ABC news website which is not high on the list of places where conservative folks spend their surfing time.

Voted No. No's ahead 17,453 to 14,361 Yes

I thought the link to a story off that page was interesting

http://abcnews.go.com/US/nra-silent-sch ... d=17993360" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It just might be that the NRA is not jumping to conclusions like Bloomburg and his ilk.

Someone needs to point out to Bloomy that trying to score political points off tragic young victims is about heinous an act as you do from public office.

And that is why I referred to Bloomberg and Menino as vultures, drawing their political "sustenance" as they do...

I've seen it look like that too, but I notice that the count continues to rise. If you refresh the page, the graphic will likely display correctly.

VERY interesting to look at the map of it...almost 1800 of the votes have come from overseas and the majority of those are in favor of gun control...as if they really get a say...how do the percentages look with those non-USA votes removed, I wonder?
