    It is. However in general there is very good pro gun discussion that goes on in the comments on the news articles. I do appreciate those that have visited to vote.

    Voted. Don't like the wording of the poll or the wording of the responses, but I voted "Nothing," the best answer.

    What should the government do to limit the availability of firearms?
    More and more complete background checks for gun buyers - 462 (15.7%)
    Ban large-capacity gun magazines - 642 (21.8%)
    Nothing - 1398 (47.6%)
    Amend the Second Amendment - 437 (14.9%)

    Edit: or maybe it detected my IP address and just kept me from voting again (wasn't trying to vote twice, just see the current tally), so don't take my word for it.

    I think it is now closed, the results are on the front page;

    What should the government do to limit the availability of firearms?

    More and more complete background checks for gun buyers
    534 ( 15.5% )

    Ban large-capacity gun magazines
    758 ( 22.0% )

    Nothing
    1640 ( 47.6% )

    Amend the Second Amendment
    515 ( 14.9% )

    NO new gun laws is needed. It is the crazy people that does the killing! There use to be homes for them but are government closed them and dump them on the streets. Jest ask any one in Australia what happen when there guns was taken away.
