Voted.
This is the Communist News Network, after all. Why would they be interested in the opinions of the 50k or so who voted to lift the ban? Maybe that's why the button does not work.

I voted too. Those of you who have memberships on other gun sites need to post this link. I'm surprise the NRA did jump on this. Maybe they don't think a straw vote is important, but I can hear the liberal press touting these figures as gospel.

I voted.I asked several of my conservative but non-gun savvy friends what they thought the AWB was all about. Without exception,they responded "It is to outlaw machine guns". This is what the liberal left wants the public to believe.I educated my friends. I just wish i had thought to do it sooner. PK,thanks for the reminder of what we should all be doing at every chance we get.

I print this up a give it to my less enlightened friends.... It's funny, not ha ha funny, how other gun owners turn their back on us... People who I have shot with and traded guns with for a long time and come up with well you really don't need assault weapons... If it is based on need do you really need your Model 70? There are plenty of Safeway's full of meat right? It's not based on needs, it is not a privledge, it is a RIGHT! But since this is the choir I'll not bitch any longer to y'all..... wink.gif

Here is the page....

But post the poll around just the same... I sent it to weaponeers.com... Can somone post to subguns and sterwergerwhateverthefookitis?
