    St. Louis, Mo has Mayor Francis Slay. He is anti gun and trying to advance his agenda with a poll that is obviously worded to get the answers he wants. Take a look:

    seemed relatively balanced to me. I didn't quite grasp the age question though...maybe that's just me.

    that was pretty juvenile. I did vote, though. Looks like the pro gun forums have found it, as the results are running big time in our favor.

    I thought it was pretty straight forward, did look like they were looking for a particular answer.

    That was funny, especially the age question! Yeah, I saw the slant, but they left wiggle room.

    I just voted. Every single one of my answers happened to be the most popular answer.

    I wish it had number of voters.

    What in the f*** kind of question is this:

    How can you expect to get reliable data with inconcise questions like this?

    The kind you'd expect from an urban Democrat with an agenda. That, and the way the questions are slanted say a whole lot about the man.

    And we will be seeing a lot more of this sort of stuff... :cuss: :barf:

    To bad this poll will get shuffeled away and never seen. The anti's will never let it be known!

    Anyone else note the irony of the mayor's surname, Slay?

    Voted. Didn't answer the questions that no useful data could be derived from.

    That was the worst poll ever... Felt like I was voting on some kids blog.

    They misquoted the 2nd amendment BTW... Idiots.

    Ok. I literally shuddered immediately before my brain even registered that I was looking at a picture of a revolver being pointed at me with a finger on the trigger. Yeah, that turned even me off to guns. Holy cow. It makes me want to slap somebody for visually assaulting me.

    Anyway, are we sure this isn't a joke? It seems like a class project done by third graders learning how to make a website using outdated programming I learned in the 90s... :confused:

    Also:
    When are we distributing the memo? Did some people miss it? It shall read:

    "Nine smart people in robes got together and talked about this one. There's now a correct answer and an incorrect answer. Have your secretary figure it out for you."

    Some of the questions were ridiculous and pointless, but I voted. The antis are still getting whupped.

    What the heck was the deal with the age question?!? Would it have been too difficult for them to put ACTUAL AGES rather than "Rock, Bow, Musket..." Jeesh, how do these people even take themselves seriously.
