    Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence :barf:

    Washington needs to pass gun laws that will keep guns out of the hands of criminals and other prohibited purchasers and keep military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines off of our streets. To do this, they should pass laws that will:
    1. Require criminal background checks for ALL gun sales, including private sales.
    2. Ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
    3. Make gun trafficking a federal crime.

    (Proposed by: Mayors Against Illegal Guns.)

    By supporting, you will be telling Congress that you support these changes to federal gun laws.

    By opposing, you will be telling Congress that you oppose these changes to gun laws.




    Mayors against Illegal Guns is passing this to all the lib sites so were already behind the 8 ball, spread this around to your local/national freedom enthusiasts! (You will need to create a Voxpopuli account when you poll, but allows you to personalize your message for the congresscritters!)

    Done! However, it is now 18% against, 82% for.

    I really hate the idea these laws are refered to as "common sense" laws. Does anyone NOT know which side of the issue the authors take?
    I smell push-polling . . . . . . . .

    Yeah. Opposed but we are still behind by quite a bit. This view supporting the bill is pretty telling though. I feel terrible for what this parent has been through but they are horribly misrepresenting what this bill would do.

    "It’s time to have real courage America stop hiding behind the second amendment it is trumped by the one basic law of humanity, "Though shalt not kill"

    The progressives were always quite fond to tell people that we do not live under a theocracy... they should be reminded


    A madman kills his son, and is arrested and on trial, and he is ready to throw millions of innocent people in prison for 5 years. This is why we do not legislate out of blind emotion.

    The libs don't work, so they have more time to go onto worthless opinion polls.

    Too bad websites like this make you register, there's too many polls out there as it is. I hit them when I see them but I'm not taking time to register on each website and give them my e-mail to bombard me with junk later.

    Just set up a dummy email account to use for these silly registrations.

    Note that if you follow through with the registration process, they send you to a page full of anti-gun listings that you can vote on. And they send an email to your reps with the message "I oppose Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence." Suppose they have an agenda??? :banghead::banghead:

    This is PopVOx, not some scam site. It is one of the primary ways we track legislation and suport members using it to voice their support for or opposition to proposed legislation.

    I've been using it for months without receiving a single email.

    I voted "Opposed," but with the full realization that the poll is a farce. Even from the title, "Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence," you can see that the deck is stacked. Who could be opposed, at first glance, to anything "common sense" to "end violence"? The antis have succeeded in winning the definitional game and the battle of perceptions. Fortunately there are still a number of thinking people in this country who are not swayed by mindless emotion and crass propaganda.

    I feel for the losses, but this is not what you base legislation off of. This is the kind of fodder that is used to impose very dark times and oppression.

    No, cowards are those who take no responsibility for their own protection.

    The best use of this poll would be to comb it for stupid sayings and arguments which we can then address in letters to congressmen. The only polls I've seen lean heavily toward anti are those put forth by the antis. Same as those by the NRA tilt away. Gallup stuff seems to be somewhere in the middle, lost in the noise of the disinterested majority (that's why so many polls are near 50-50). This poll was created to reinforce MAIG's self-assurance--you really think they'll let it go against their will? Unless the NRA gets ahold of this poll and decides to call down the hammer of God from their membership directly, we'll stay right at 20%.

    I used the "biased letter to congressman" feature to call attention to what MAIG was doing to generate the letter. I said "I oppose "common sense reform" because there is nothing common sense about it, and this poll/email is a scam intended to deceive you as to your electorate's opinion." FWIW, the biased message is only sent if you do not opt to edit the message.

    If POPVOX really wants to be a legit service that people don't mistake for a phishing scam, they really need to get some better servers. That, or defend against DDOS attacks, or something, because every operation on that page was either painfully slow, crashed the browser, or timed out :mad:

    *Love the cute little "You Changed the Pie-Chart!" bit after you vote; No, I didn't :rolleyes:
