    Gun control survey for politicians

    This is another one of my off-the-wall ideas. I'd like to try this around the 2010 midterm elections just as an experiment. There was a similar thing done by a media organization a while back when they asked a number of candidates about a fake war in a nonexistent country, and they got all kinds of detailed answers that showed they were just BSing.

    1. Make up an organization with a name like "Citizens Against Community Violence" or something along those lines.

    2. Write up a questionnaire with items like, "What is your position on the use of double barreled semi-action clips in civilian firearms?" or "Do you think it is appropriate for civilians to own a rifle firing a round as large as 4 mm?"

    3. Contact local (and national, if available) candidates over the phone and ask them those questions on the spot. You could also print the questions on professional-looking stationary and send it to them.

    4. Publicly expose all of the nonsense answers and show their ignorance for what it is.

    Sounds like a good idea to me.

    Don't forget to include those nasty self-firing, autoload, 200mm Pistol, semi-lethal rounds! Can't have those on the street!

    How about should citizens be able to use silencers on revolvers.

    All good ideas, gentlemen!

    If we could get a number of people involved in this, it may have some interesting results. Maybe we could get some liberal town committee to pass a resolution denouncing a gun that doesn't even exist.

    "Police are calling the Glotch 60 the most dangerous handgun available - incredibly compact, but with a high-capacity magazine and a built-in silencer. It's also easily converted to be a hyperautomatic assault pistol. Simply an amazing feat of engineering."

    So, in terms of really doing this...does anyone have a list of anti-gun politicians who will be up for reelection in 2010? Or just pick your own, and we can compile a list.

    I'd like to know how many rounds that magazine holds, and how it feeds into that cylinder? Would there be anything left to bayonet after the 12 gauge has been fired?
