    I attempted to add this personal message:

    "I oppose any restrictions on my personal right to Keep and Bear arms, first and foremost on the grounds that such restrictions by the federal government are a BLATANT violation of the Constitution.

    These are not "Common Sense" laws. These laws seek only to limit general availability of effective weapons to the citizens of this country, under the false pretense of supporting public safety. Neither so called "Assault Weapons", nor magazines holding any number of rounds of ammunition, nor private sales of firearms constitute a credible threat to public safety. Crimes of many types, including mass murder are committed without regard for existing (and already overly restrictive) firearms laws, and in spite of the best efforts made by society to combat them.

    This is partly due to a massive over dependence on society in general, and specifically law enforcement, in preserving personal safety.

    The most insulting aspect of gun control is that it directly and clearly hurts the citizens ability to protect themselves from personal harm. The individual is, has always been, and will always be responsible for their personal security, and therefore it is imperative that government should in no way, shape, or form attempt to restrict that individuals ability to arm themselves.

    I want Congress to see the simple truth that limiting essential personal liberty under the pretense of protecting public safety is, and will always be unconscionable and unAmerican ."

    Their system told me my comment is too long.

    Hey, isn't that a violation of my First amendment rights? :banghead:

    As an aside, notice that we are loosing the MAIG poll right now, yet on that website there are a whole ton of polls about other 2A related bills, and in the vast majority of those polls, the Pro 2A side is winning.

    Think maybe MAIG is stacking the deck on their pet poll? Hmm...

    Popvox is pretty cool way to stay on top of legislative issues it has links to govtrac.us were you can get emails on the current status of bills as they make it though the system. I have learned a lot about the system this way.;)

    Either my computer is running exceptionally slow or my oppose vote is taking an extraordinary time in registering, so I got out of it. The results are probably trumped up by the anti's anyway.:scrutiny:

    Worked well for me.

    Quite cool, and easy way to let them know.

    Thanks

    Timed out on my opposition, my guess is it's rigged against those who oppose. Gee, I'm shocked.

    Worked fine for me back when I opposed it. Nothing in PopVox is rigged, but there's only so much bandwidth for folks to vote through so keep trying.

    This one is, although not by PopVox. If you click OPPOSED, is sends emails to your congressmen that just say "I am opposed to sensible gun laws"

    Mine didn't, and you can see many others that don't. If you take the time to point out that the name is a false flag deception and that bans of firearms, magazines, or ammunition are extremist postions that aren't supported by the majority of voters that is what your letter will say.

    This is what was sent to my Congressmen -

    Wow, the guys on the "support" side have some of the most powerful, convincing, and convenient stories. An infantryman who refers to SA rifles as "military style" and a friend of an Aurora survivor all in the same place! Some them are so over-the-top fabricated it's comical. Others are, well, here's an example:

    "Why is the United States the only western industrialized country in which civilians can parade the streets like soldiers and kill children?" :D:D:D They forgot "hunting" people on the acceptable activities list!

    The "anti-common-sense" :rolleyes: side appears filled with stats, facts, and logical progressions (granted they don't always follow very well) that attempt to prove why this legislation is a bad idea. I'd also love to see if it can be determined how many of either side phones in from outside the US. How much you wanna bet the

    I love the Hobson's Choice in the poll (and that it's been at exactly 80:20 for the last day or so that I've seen it :scrutiny:). Luckily for us, "common sense" reforms are as much a code-word to our reps as us, so "opposing" them would still get the point across to a rep ;)

    Worked for me. It shows a map of where the votes are coming from. The poll is 80% for gun control and the areas showing up are heavily concentrated in the liberal North East and West Coast. 2nd Amendment supporters need to hit this one.

    You can add a personal message.

    Maybe this will bring up the map:

    They wanted me to use my Google or other logon through their site. I do not go for that sort of trick. I don't share my logon and password with third parties. I have seen many times where contacts get spammed after falling for this trick. :thumbdown:

    I assure you that this doesn't happen with Popvox. Without identifying the poster they're subject to all the failures of multiple posting to skewing.

    This is highly suspicious. No it won't spam you. I've done other polls there, for real bills. This thing is not a bill. Just the usual lie from MAIG.

    This is in fact a joke. Take a look at the graph. How did the anti side start with so many votes? And 2nd amendment people were flat lined at ZERO for so long? Then drill it down to a district that is super pro-gun? The MAIG idiots still had huge leads at the beginning and retain such leads.

    Keep in mind that MAIG is encouraging everyone in the entire Anti network (remember all those folks being blind emailed by the Administration's "Organizing For Action" and asking them to tell their story about being victims) to come to this poll just as we've encouraged our members to. They're better organized than we are and can get people to "rally" on these things (this poll jumped out of the gate with a lot of votes and then pretty much peaked around 9 Jan).

    Those of you that refuse to engage are turning away from an opportunity to be heard in that venue so I hope you're redoubling your efforts elsewhere with your local, state, and Congressional politicians to counter MAIG.

    I did a spit-take when I clicked on my own District and saw the number of votes, which far, FAR outpaces anything else this area has participated in on the site. More votes in our tiny neck of the woods than even in some of the New York Districts!

    And just look at the names of the people who support it! "Anonymous1181451" or some variation on EVERY SINGLE COMMENT!

    https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/x101/report#state=NC&district=11

    Another telling thing on the national level, look at the number of "appreciates" on our side vs theirs.
