CNN has a poll posted on whether or not Bush should show more support for continuing the AWB. The yes votes currently outnumber the no votes so take a second to help swap that around.

I voted, but unfortunately it's about 41K for and 29K against. But then again, it is CNN. Not my choice for news.

I bet the results would be different on FOX News.

Well I believe he should take a Higher profile. Ideally, I would like to see him come out and unequivocally state that the Second is not only a Constitutionally enumerated right, but a natural right as well.

May 15, 2003, 09:27 PM

He is for the AWB.


May 15, 2003, 09:40 PM
I voted and sent the link to many friends.

Total: 68309 votes

Feh, what do you expect? CNN is as Liberal as you can get away with in the media.

Now, if this poll was on FOX, it would be 180* different.

May 15, 2003, 10:50 PM
I added my "No", but it doesn't matter CNN will continue the story as a ban on "evil murder devices"

Well, when I tried to vote a few moments ago it would NOT Accept My NO VOTE -- I tried several times and it seems I got lost in cyber space looking for a page that was not accessable each time :banghead: --

I had no trouble accessing their page showing 60%-40% results in favor of Bush takeing a higher profile on his support for the ban on semiautomatic weapons, though. :cuss:

Anybody smell something? :fire:

I mean, we all KNOW that CNN :barf: is the most TRUSTED name in news, right ? :rolleyes: THEY SAID SO! :scrutiny: :rolleyes:

SquirrelNuts- I am aware of that, but in my ideal world I would like him to take a high profile that is distinctly pro-gun...a man can dream.

May 15, 2003, 11:10 PM
Still 60% / 40%

May 15, 2003, 11:13 PM

May 15, 2003, 11:24 PM
Making progress, it was 36 or 37% last night.

May 15, 2003, 11:41 PM
Already been there........Already done that.

We need more people with brain cells taking that poll.

Well take this FWIW. While channel surfing today I happened to stop at CNN. I know I know, but I saw assualt weapons and thought I tune in to see what the other side had to say.

Well I was shocked. Between the "on site" reporter and the one home office, they both more or less admitted they think the ban will sunset.

They're theory was that it would never make it to G.W.'s desk. They mentioned how close the vote was and that many of the democrats that voted for the bill in 94 were not reelected their next term. They also mentioned that most democrats don't seem to want to push this subject because it's not an issue they can win at this time.

Why couldn't the poll just be "for" or "against"? who cares how high his profile is? :barf:

May 16, 2003, 01:33 PM
One of you members need to get the arfcom army after it. Make sure it's on as well. I can handle

May 16, 2003, 01:38 PM
i'm just waiting for CNN to spin this and say that since the "yes" votes will probably win, and they obviously agree that the AWB should be kept, that XX% of Americans support the AWB renewal, even though that wasn't even the question.


May 16, 2003, 05:37 PM
43% no and 57% yes. Vote, and vote often. Simply clear the cookie they send you and vote again and again and again!

May 16, 2003, 06:04 PM
Voted. Need more no votes!

May 17, 2003, 08:30 AM
