    Central ... I am sure you meant (didn't ya?) for this to be multiple choice. I could only select the first but - others apply.

    Maybe re-structure the poll ..... or get a mod to help if they can. Single choice won't cut it!

    All right.

    It's impossible to edit a poll from one-choice-only into multiple-choice, so I just added a couple more options.

    Hope that helps.

    If not, PM or email and we'll shut this one down and start over.

    All of the above, except I kinda fudged on the journalist/newspaper thing--I've spoken to journalism students, but not actual working journalists. I figure it's better to try and get them before the views are totally imprinted, anyways. ;-P

    There should be an option for "protested/left a sign/card/etc. at an anti-gun business".

    All of the Above

    You forgot "Joined/Renewed at GRASS ROOTS level". Federal is important but it all starts at the State level.

    I marked all of the above, but I was wrong. I don't usually write to newspapers. Still, I try to do my part.

    Writing and calling your congresscritters is great but remember, every once in a while they come home. Try to meet with them. Let them hear it from the horses mouth not filtered by their staff. The media should be e-mailed daily.

    Everything except:

    NRA/GOA (I'll getta rountuit)
    My experiences with newspaper/journalists has been less than satisfactory, most already have their minds made up. Therefore I don't waste my time or breath with them. Show me one genuinely interested in learning and publishing the unbiased truth and I may reconsider.
