    First off, Hello..New guy here with a request for assistance.
    This http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/nationworld/sns-ap-miami-shooting,0,5107701.story was the story that led to the newspaper throwing up an informal poll on whether or not to ban guns. Informal, yes. But it'll get printed for sure... if it goes the way the paper wants of course! The heck no was leading by about 20%. Then 1/2 an hour went by and they got an enormous influx of "Yes, this is a wake-up call that guns need to be banned." So maybe somebody did the same as I'm doing and posted to the Brady website...or we are going against a bot. Could use a quick vote to help the numbers.
    POLL- http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news...-0124-miami-shooting-poll,0,2714959,post.poll
    Thx in advance
    Someone will be able to use these numbers as "evidence" for their cause. Let's hope it's us!

    When I try to vote I get an error message. Maybe they are unhappy with the current results. :mad:

    Voted no. People like the killer will not obey the law, so people should be allowed to defend themselves.

    I'm watching their bots at work right now. The Yes Ban's are jumping up at 10 per second right now. After a few hundred while I was watching it has stopped again. It'll stay that way until the program hits it again later

    lol I did a search before posting and you beat me to it. I can't do the bot thing, but I can definitely get in a good 10 votes per day. ;)

    As in, 10 votes from other people of course. :D
