It was 360-to-31, favor of us.

Wonder if THIS poll will get widely reported?

There has been about 2 gazzilion polls since the VT shooting (okay, I exaggerated, only 1 gazzilion), have any of them seen the light of day on the news?
I don't watch the news, so I have no idea, but has anyone seen the major (or even local) news put forth any of these polls?
I have not seen one yet that showed that people favored more gun control, so I imagine they get deep sixed as soon as they close.

That's because the link's too long. Right click on it and select "copy link location" and then paste should work fine (at least with Firefox, IE should have a similar choice. )

I have this same poll posted on L&P. The reason for this poll is some sailors were arrested in New London using a "so-called" assault weapon...< > New London — Four sailors from the Naval Submarine Base in Groton were arrested Tuesday in connection with gunshots fired into a car on Willetts Avenue Monday night, police said.

Police said the shooting occurred outside a house at 31 Willetts Ave., where the sailors had been awaiting the return of a man who lives there with his girlfriend, Lola Harvey, the estranged wife of one of the men.

The sailors planned to shoot the boyfriend with an assault rifle, police said.

When the boyfriend didn't come home, the sailors shot seven rounds through Harvey's unoccupied car with a MAC 90 semi-automatic assault rifle — a 3-foot-long weapon with a scope and military-style ammunition that went through both sides of the vehicle, according to witnesses.

“I thought it was right under my window,” said a neighbor who lives a few houses away from the scene.

All four sailors, including Anthony Harvey, 20, of 65 Jackson Drive, were charged Tuesday with first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree criminal mischief, conspiracy to commit first-degree reckless endangerment, risk of injury, possession of an assault weapon and unlawful discharge of a firearm.

Harvey, Lola Harvey's estranged husband, also was charged with criminal possession of a firearm. On Monday night, he had been charged with violation of a protective order and breach of peace.

Police said Harvey violated a court order that prevents him from seeing his estranged wife or entering her home. As part of the order, he is not allowed to carry any kind of weapon.

A few hours before the shots were fired, police said Harvey, a sonar submarine technician with the USS Virginia, came to his estranged wife's home with Jakori Dorhan, 24, of the U.S. Naval Submarine Base in Groton, and Phillip Johnson, 20, of 65 Jackson Drive, Groton. They got into a fistfight with Lola Harvey's boyfriend, according to police Capt. William Dittman.

A few hours later, Dittman said, the men came back, bringing Antwon Dickerson, 23, whose local address was unavailable, with them — along with the assault weapon. Dittman said they shot the gun from inside a vehicle. No one was injured.

Following Harvey's arrest Monday night, the police vice unit worked with Groton Town police Tuesday morning to locate the other three men at Navy housing.

All four men appeared Tuesday in New London Superior Court. Harvey and Johnson were held on $500,000 bonds. Dickerson, an E3 fire control technician seaman with the Naval Submarine Support Command, and Dorhan, an electronic technician seaman assigned to the submarine base, were held on $250,000 bonds.

“As we go through this process we'll decide on their status with the Navy,” Lt. Mark Jones, public affairs officer for Submarine Group 2, said. “Civil authorities certainly have the lead, and we will cooperate with them.”

He said he could not yet comment on whether the men would face a court-martial, as the Navy was still gathering information about the incident. He said the Navy was still in the process of verifying Johnson's role with the Navy.

The shooting is one of several that have occurred in the neighborhood over the last few months, and Jay Wheeler, who heads up the Willetts Avenue Neighborhood Association, said police have been working hard to rid the neighborhood of drug activity.

“They had a good team of officers there, taking care of the scene,” Wheeler said. “They seemed to be working appropriately and diligently.”

have any of them seen the light of day on the news?

1.) Not that I know of, I think they will keep running the things until they find one they like before they broadcast it.

2.) Assualt is an action, not an object or brand name.

3.) Major media news is not about information, it is about propaganda and indoctrination.

Nope.... no lying in statistics at work here.

Yes = 46
No = 886

Yet apparently.... and this blows my mind..... 46 is very very close to 886. So far No is only winning by a hair. That must be a typo.... it must be 846 vs 886..... oh wait..... darn.... that doesn't add up to 932.
