    OhGAM Poll - hit it!

    Let's help offset the previous poll being quoted by the antis. In a December statewide poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, 62 percent of the registered voters who participated said the law should remain on the books. Only 32 percent favored its repeal.

    This poll by WTVR doesn't confuse the issues and is a simple "Agree" or "Disagree" choice

    http://wtvr.com/status/poll-do-you-agree/

    Virginia's one-handgun-a-month law...

    Correct response >...should be repealed. I agree with our lawmakers' decision.

    Wrong response >....should have stayed on the books. I disagree with the law change.

    Message is being sent loud and clear

    85.19% to 14.81% in agreement with repealing


    Quinnipac University Polling Institute of Hamden, Conneticut obvious knows very little about the feelings and thoughts of Virginians. I'd say that something was seriously flawed in their survey wherein 62% were against repeal. Only 32% were for repeal according to them. Gotta raise the BS flag on this one.

    Looking for a 90/10 split by lunch time today if they keep the poll open that long.

    Yes Virginia is a freedom loving state!

    Better do a screen shot. Those polls disappear sometimes.

    90.53% to 9.47% favoring repeal of OhGAM - that expresses what Virginian's think about the issue quite clearly.

    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    My b udget usually restricts me from buying more but I'm curious. Just so I'm clear. The way it is now. Is it 1 gun a month or 1 gun every 30 days. There's a big difference.

    1 handgun per 30 days right now, or if you have CHP doesn't matter. On July 1 2012 you won't need a CHP to walk into a gunstore and buy 2 handguns, even though mult handgun buys are reported to ATF.

    I was at a gun show once, guy didn't have CHP, wanted to buy 2 LC9's for himself and wife for CCW class. Couldn't do it.
    I have been saving my money for some months now, waiting for my 21st birthday. ^^
