    When the poll ends maybe he'll change his position and only want lobbyist's and press to get background checks.

    I do not see how this "poll" can be read any other way. I believe it is saying...." no, don't do that! "

    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I wonder if this poll will hit the floor because the results are skewed?

    Skewed = Not what I wanted

    I don't know when his poll went up, but by the 17th his bill was already dead.

    I'd wager he wants to whine "See, my bill died but the people want it ..." -- and he was thwarted. Good work.
