    The poll is from NY daily news. What would you expect? Pile of monkey sh!t...

    Fine, outlaw the guns and see how fast the murder rates and violent crime rates rise.
    I'm sure the criminals who use them would love that to happen.

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Peoples Republic of NY. Don't expect anything else from sheeple that have been brainwashed all their lives.

    I'm sure by the time the poll expires it will be less than 2% yes... I bet most of the no votes are from the city folk. They're used to being restricted and told what to do.

    Or perhaps the poll will remain open for the next 2 years and this thread will be a zombie that never dies and the yes vote will become a negative number.

    Peace...

    What is the Constitution for $ 1000.00, Alex? ...................Oh sorry, thought I was on Jeopardy. Our Constitution, or at least The Bill of Rights are. Also no mention in the alternative question, just something about culture. So of course the poll will be biased. Look at the demographics they're reaching.

    Voted...36% no. Some good comments on the bottom of the page though.

    Just voted. No's now down to 35%. Thing is, though, even at 2:1 against guns, I think I can take at least two before they get me, so the odds are still in our favour.

    Don't retreat. Just reload.

    I just voted & it is down to 33%.

    I also just noticed that in true democrat fashion you can vote more than once. I have little doubt there are a handful of anti gun cretin's reloading the page to vote again incessantly.

    A more positive response might be given IF it was worded something like this:

    No. While some guns are used illegally, hundreds of thousands of others are used legally and responsibly for home defense, personal defense and sporting purposes.

    Pols are only as accurate as someone wants them to be by the way they are worded and presented. What would you expect from a "gun" pol in NY?

    What if they put out a pol like this one for all New Yorkers:

    Should private ownership of guns be allowed by everyone who is legally permitted to own them as defined by federal laws and guaranteed by the US Constitution?

    I think that the outcome of the pol would be quite different.
    I agree with you, most polls are rigged to get the answer that the originator wants to get.
