    I found this on another forum I belong to, and think it's important to get the word out.

    CNN is running poll: "Do you believe the U.N. is trying to outlaw gun ownership in the U.S.?" The poll can be found in the lower right hand side of CNN's home page.

    You should all vote in this! Show CNN and the turds at the UN exactly how the U.S. feels about it's constitutional rights.

    Please don't click on the link, cut and paste instead.

    When they have an influx of people coming from the same website, they know people are trying to stack the poll.

    damage control from the UN

    The UN conference chief said yesterday that there are no plans to reopen the 2001 agreement to expand it to include domestic gun controls.

    The conference chief says this NOW, after IANSA declared almost 30 days ago that their 700 delegates (out of 2000 total at the conference) would be pushing to reopen and expand the agreement for the purpose of including domestic gun controls.:rolleyes:

    The 2001 agreement does not include domestic gun controls because the US vetoed the attempt to put them in the agreement.

    I also voted that the UN IS trying to ban our guns, and didn't have it register.

    Ah yes, the“U.N. Conference to Review Progress Made in the Implementation of the Programme of Action to Prevent and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects,” brought to us by the same folks who illegally imported HK MP5 submachineguns into the USA to protect Kofi Annan's hide. :cuss: The UN can say what every they want.....sadly for them Rebecca Peters has already pretty much explained the agenda of her group and the others who pushed for this conference. The goal is clear as can be.

    Another reason to drive that worthless debating society from our shores.....

    Here is the latest comments from the NRA.

    If you compare the numbers with the totals I posted earlier, you can see they have increased. The percentages have remained the same. Seems a little fishy, but I'm not ready to cry foul yet.

    I don't know, I think something is fishy. I have three seperate computers here at work. I voted seperately on all three by typing in the URL manually and voting "Yes".

    While the "No" count changed over the period of several minutes I took me to go to all three systems and vote, the "Yes" count never changed even though I voted "Yes" three times.

    Well I think for a CNN poll which is usually very liberal the 40% is significant. I mean think of it 40% and there are a majority of people out there who know nothing about what is going on within the UN. Plus I am glad the UN did notice and was not happy about my little card they received...:D

    Still 41% to 59%. They're stacking it from the other side. Most CNN visitors are also socialists anyway, who would gladly see the UN gun ban come to fruition, so don't be surprised that they rig the polls in their favor.

    They have yanked it

    They have changed to a different subject.....numbers must have been moving in favor of the truth......can't have that now can they?:fire:

    still up and going

    Remember, it is the stated purpose of Rebecca Peters and IANSA
    to use the UN Conference on illegal traffic in small arms and
    light weapons to enforce an Australian style ban on US private
    gun owners.

    To the antis, all illegal guns started as legal at one time;
    therefore, the cure to the illegal gun problem
    is ban legal guns.

    This is what I saw at 6-22-06 14:15
    Still up at 14:28 total votes 65948

    I right-clicked and refreshed the results screen before and after voting YES.

    The results did not show my vote right away.

    By the time I finished my email to cnn suggesting a possible problem with the voting feature, about 70 votes had been dumped into each.

    41% YES to
    59% NO

    27,187 y
    38,926 n
    66,113 total

    note- the poll is on the story page titled :
    NRA unloads on U.N.
    can use search function, (select cnn site) to find it
    or cut and paste the already mentioned address

    OK, a few minutes later the vote shows:

    ~3:20 PM EST
    27,238 Y (Up 51 votes from last check)
    38,940 N (Up 14 votes...)

    3:32 PM EST
    27,294 Y (up 56)
    38,955 N (up 15)

    3:47 PM EST
    27,352 Y (up 58)
    38,971 (up 16)

    4:03 PM EST
    27,415 Y (up 63)
    38,987 N (up 16)

    Looks like the poll updates every 15 minutes.
