    I found this on another forum I belong to, and think it's important to get the word out.

    CNN is running poll: "Do you believe the U.N. is trying to outlaw gun ownership in the U.S.?" The poll can be found in the lower right hand side of CNN's home page.

    You should all vote in this! Show CNN and the turds at the UN exactly how the U.S. feels about it's constitutional rights.

    Thanks!

    Please don't click on the link, cut and paste instead.

    When they have an influx of people coming from the same website, they know people are trying to stack the poll.

    damage control from the UN

    The UN conference chief said yesterday that there are no plans to reopen the 2001 agreement to expand it to include domestic gun controls.

    The conference chief says this NOW, after IANSA declared almost 30 days ago that their 700 delegates (out of 2000 total at the conference) would be pushing to reopen and expand the agreement for the purpose of including domestic gun controls.:rolleyes:

    The 2001 agreement does not include domestic gun controls because the US vetoed the attempt to put them in the agreement.

    I also voted that the UN IS trying to ban our guns, and didn't have it register.

    Ah yes, the“U.N. Conference to Review Progress Made in the Implementation of the Programme of Action to Prevent and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects,” brought to us by the same folks who illegally imported HK MP5 submachineguns into the USA to protect Kofi Annan's hide. :cuss: The UN can say what every they want.....sadly for them Rebecca Peters has already pretty much explained the agenda of her group and the others who pushed for this conference. The goal is clear as can be.

    Another reason to drive that worthless debating society from our shores.....

    Here is the latest comments from the NRA.

    Yes 41% 23877 votes

    No 59% 34653 votes
    Total: 58530 votes

    =============

    If you compare the numbers with the totals I posted earlier, you can see they have increased. The percentages have remained the same. Seems a little fishy, but I'm not ready to cry foul yet.

    I don't know, I think something is fishy. I have three seperate computers here at work. I voted seperately on all three by typing in the URL manually and voting "Yes".

    While the "No" count changed over the period of several minutes I took me to go to all three systems and vote, the "Yes" count never changed even though I voted "Yes" three times.

    Well I think for a CNN poll which is usually very liberal the 40% is significant. I mean think of it 40% and there are a majority of people out there who know nothing about what is going on within the UN. Plus I am glad the UN did notice and was not happy about my little card they received...:D

    Still 41% to 59%. They're stacking it from the other side. Most CNN visitors are also socialists anyway, who would gladly see the UN gun ban come to fruition, so don't be surprised that they rig the polls in their favor.

    still up and going

    Remember, it is the stated purpose of Rebecca Peters and IANSA
    to use the UN Conference on illegal traffic in small arms and
    light weapons to enforce an Australian style ban on US private
    gun owners.

    To the antis, all illegal guns started as legal at one time;
    therefore, the cure to the illegal gun problem
    is ban legal guns.

    I right-clicked and refreshed the results screen before and after voting YES.

    The results did not show my vote right away.

    By the time I finished my email to cnn suggesting a possible problem with the voting feature, about 70 votes had been dumped into each.

    41% YES to
    59% NO

    27,187 y
    38,926 n
    ------------
    66,113 total

    note- the poll is on the story page titled :
    NRA unloads on U.N.
    can use search function, (select cnn site) to find it
    or cut and paste the already mentioned address



    OK, a few minutes later the vote shows:

    ~3:20 PM EST
    27,238 Y (Up 51 votes from last check)
    38,940 N (Up 14 votes...)

    3:32 PM EST
    27,294 Y (up 56)
    38,955 N (up 15)

    3:47 PM EST
    27,352 Y (up 58)
    38,971 (up 16)

    4:03 PM EST
    27,415 Y (up 63)
    38,987 N (up 16)

    Looks like the poll updates every 15 minutes.

    Do you believe the U.N. is trying to outlaw gun ownership in the U.S.?
    Yes 41% 27238 votes
    No 59% 38940 votes
    Total: 66178 votes

    While I do believe that some goups are trying to use the UN
    to outlaw gun ownership in the U.S. I vited YES.
    The Yes No vote does not allow nuance.

    The clown they have as the spokesman clammors about not effecting legally held guns. Yeah, ok. All you have to do is pass a law making a sportsman's gun no longer legal to own, and THEN it effects him and his formerly legally owned gun.

    If you're not doing anything illegal, they make it so that what you are doing, is illegal.

    OK, the poll has gone from 50221 total votes to over 66000 total votes, and the percentages have not budged during any of that intervening time. :scrutiny:

    Try this

    I know. Try running a piece of tin foil over the mouse when you click in your vote.

    Then, CNN may eventually register your vote as one from the darned "tin foil hat wearing nut cases" like I have been labeled, every time I warned anyone who would listen over the last twenty five years that indeed, a "New World Order" is coming and the United Nations thugs are slowly establishing their founding of that entity.

    But sure enough, all the gung ho, mom, dad, apple pie believers will get after someone trying to point out, gun confiscations have already happened here previously, and they wil say once again "That couldn't happen in the U.S."! "Nobody will stand for it!" "Why, I'll...I'll...."

    And if you point out we all stood around (and the victims are still standing around in New Orleans waiting for that idiot Nagin to finally quick defying the Judges Order to return the guns they confiscated (which can't happen in America)

    But it is all okay, since 59 percent of the poll results show that the majority of CNN viewers and listners don't think the U.N. is wanting to confiscate guns from Americans. Funn that can be though when you simply listen to the U.N. Gun Banners promises, that that is exactly what they are doing.

    Oh well, let's all go about our business. Nothing to see here. Everyone go home. Everything's fine.
