    I urge my fellow members here to go to the Newsweek website
    xtra. newsweek.com and participate in the poll. As a result of the Virgina Tech shootings they are asking if we need tighter gun controls. We need to be heard. One insane guy with a gun should not paint us all as bad guys.

    Thanks,

    That "link" brought me to a yahoo search. Could you please give the site for those of us who are lazy? :) Just please make sure to disable hot-linking to keep us off the radar.


    Thanks.

    Thanks for the link. Oddly, I don't see where we can vote. It is just showing results.

    Think they got the result they wanted and shut down voting?

    Thanks to all who voted, we need to keep this going!!

    You can access this by also going to Newsweek.com and look for xtra newsweek. Click that on and it should bring you to the poll.
