    The article that goes with it sounds like it was written by a demented 3rd grader.

    Voted. We're winning, by a decent amount.

    People who can't write shouldn't try to masquerade as journalists.

    Remember, it asks "Should the gun ban be changed?"

    Does that mean more, or less restrictive?

    *Not sure if it could get any more restrictive...*

    Short of having the DC National Guard units go house to house and execute any gun owners on the spot, I don't believe the DC gun ban can get much worse.

    "The article that goes with it sounds like it was written by a demented 3rd grader."

    The headline sure does:

    "D.C. Gun Law Ban Attacked"

    I *wish* there were a gun law ban in DC, and everywhere else, for that matter.

    The headline is a deliberate misrepresentation. It is followed with a grammatically incorrect; nay, a grammatically disastrous, sentence. Then there are two more sentences, one is meaningless and other is pointless.

    Then there is poll that is stupidly worded.

    What an article...so much willfull ignorance in such a short space. :barf:

    Wow. 90% for changing, 10% against. How much you wanna bet that Channel 4 never mentions this poll again? :neener:

    fear that crime could only get worse? how could that even be possible, dont they have one of the highest if not crime rates in the entire country? nice to see the libs getting their ass kicked on that poll.

    There is. Hardly anybody follows it, though.

    Have you ever known NBC 4 to say anything remotely pro-gun? I sure as heck haven't.

    I believe he's referencing the Second Amendment. ;)
