CNN POLL: Gun Control, we're losing bad.

http://edition.cnn.com/

The premise and wording of the poll is atrocious, but what else is new?

That's because its CNN International web page. It geared towards Foreign markets.

Once again the media showing their colors. A tragedy happens, and there they are ready with a poll to advance their agenda.

They might as well have hired someone to pull the trigger, the way they act.

They're sure happy to give these kooks their 15 minutes of fame, and more, if it means advancing an agenda.

Of all the positive stories about gun ownership we see in the Armed Citizen, have you ever heard CNN report them?

Of all the gun violence in countries where guns are supposedly non-existent, do you hear CNN report on this?

Gun control stories... the new Yellow Journalism.

New CNN gun control Poll - Hurry & Vote!

CNN.com International - Breaking, World, Business, Sports, Entertainment and Video News

Another "do we need more gun control?" poll. Go vote, its 2/3 the way down the page on the right.

We are losing folks!

It won't help there's already a "DU this poll" over at DU that's 130k potential votes to skew the results. Internet polls are useless once DU gets "ahold" of them.

But the numbers don't change. I voted 3 times and it still gave me the same number of negatives.

Wouldn't shock me if it was rigged to be honest. If I'm not mistaken polls in the US indicate the majority of people don't believe in more gun control.

The lady called it "incomprehensible"... How are things like this still a huge shock? It's terrible obviously. I am just not that shocked by it anymore unfortunately.

You have to keep in mind who makes up a majority of CNN's viewers though. One of my favorite activities around election time is to flip back and forth between Fox and CNN and see the huge discrepancies between each channel's predictions.

Depends Undergarments. 'Cuz they're bedwetters.

DU refers to Democratic Underground, a.k.a. DUmmies.

CNN is nobody. Disregard it completely, it's a scheme to find out how many people pay attention to their site. Ignore them and their viewer is reduced.

It's not that bad. What this will do is exactly what we are doing. Getting the pro gun folks to unite and stand stronger, while the butt hole antigun people, look at this and think they have us against the ropes and slack off a bit. We are alot stronger then any antigun group out there. If the recent rash of purchases of arms and ammo isn't enough to show our numbers, what will.

no guns

CNN, I think we all will agree, is blatantly anti-gun. It always amazes me that they look at something, see what they want to see, and then become blind. Notice that all of the rampage shootings, that they so thoroughly cover, always take place where the perpetrator knows that there will be no guns opposing him. Do you believe that if they thought there was a possibility of having to go up against armed individuals that they would do this. CNN and their ant-gun friends see what they want to see and look no farther. I know I am preaching to the choir so I will shut up now, but this really burns my a__, whoops, posterior. stay safe
