    Fire Mission http://www.inrich.com/cva/ric/news.html The Richmond Times-Disgust is anti-gun.

    The poll comes along with a short article abour a rookie sheriff's deputy that quit after getting drunk & shooting off his pistol outside his home. (Yeah, it sucks to be him but at least he did the right thing once he sobered up.)

    Let's remind the paper of how many gun owners there are out there, and that they generally are overwhelmingly safe.

    stay safe.

    Guy was lucky he wasn't in MO. In MO it is a felony to be in control/possession of a loaded firearm when legally intoxicated.

    Hit it!

    It is interesting to note that of 2200 votes, nobody has chosen to coment on this poll. IMO - this shows remarkable judgement - no ignorant statements to refute so let the numbers speak for themselves.

    Voted. While I was there, I also had to post a comment aboutthe big picture of Timmy-boy on the front page spoiling my breakfast. I'm sure it won't be published.

    Hit it. Back in the day in LE circles this would have been no biggie but now LEO's can't wait to screw each other, but I guess I am a dinosaur.

    My guess is that you have to register as a user to post a comment. Who among us wants to be associated with an anti gun slanted paper? Not me.:celebrate

    Oh yeah, I voted too. I have several.

    I may hit it from work.

    The IT guy in me says not to link my IP address with a response confirming or denying firearm ownership.

    Looks like there is a high number of NO's. Atleast the "its ok for others" has a good number of votes.

    We are winning.. but.. the poll is made to not look like a landside.

    The NO's are in GREEN and YES, I have SEVERAL is in RED

    If you look at the numbers it is 27% no (which means 73% other than NO or YES). So.. we are smoking them but you'd never know it by the way they presented the poll. Also.. when we kill a poll this badly.. they will just take it down pretty quickly.

    He voted that way because he only owns one or less guns.
