    Pretty overwhelming already.

    No 83.95% (68 votes)

    Yes 13.58% (11 votes)

    Not sure 2.47% (2 votes)

    Total Votes: 81

    The problem is that popular opinion will not, IMHO, change one darned thing unless that opinion is expressed in the ballot box.

    I remain sickened and stunned by this move.

    stay safe.

    Sadly, I'm not sure what our fellow gun owners thought they were going to get with this creature.

    Look at the results across the state. NOVA was a big part of it. Most counties and cities voted republican. http://www.politico.com/2013-electio...rnor/virginia/

    But isn't that the case with just about every state? The liberty hating cesspools of democrats... urban centers and other like-minded government dependent regions?

    Great resource by the way, thanks.

    My hope, naïve as it may be, is that IF we can get a somewhat conservative President in office this next go-round, most, if not all of the Obamabots will move back to Chicago, New York, LA, or what ever other rock they crawled out from underneath, and Virginia will go back to Red again.

    It will always be close, but we still aren't that far away.

    Not knowing Virginia law, I have to ask... what difference are opinions if what the Governor did was legal?

    McAuliffe will claim undisputed universal support for his actions. The poll will help prove one more lie from the Expletive deleted Governor.

    Riverrat you realize that that the poll is not at the top of the page, right? I clicked the "No" button probably 10 times at the top of the page before I realized the poll was below.

    Try logging on from another web browser. It didn't work for me when I used Internet Explorer. I then logged on from the new Edge web browser and it worked fine.

    Looks like they finally put a filter on to "prevent" multiple votes.

    stay safe.

    Thank you, we have already counted your vote.

    LOL New Edge from Micro$oft replacing IE.

    My first visit got "Thank you. We have already counted your vote."

    I suspect that they are tracking cookies as I had to reload the page a half-dozen times while I figured which cookie they wanted to see to display the poll.
