Mayor Bloomberg's MAIG poll
 
Sorry if this was posted previously. Searched and did not see it.

From Illiniois State Rifle Association (results go to your Representatives): Mayor Bloomberg's MAIG is circulating a 'poll' among anti-gun circles to try and create more fake 'grassroots' support. There are more ISRA members than there are anti-gun group members nationwide. Show them that. (registration required)


I'm presuming all here will Oppose. :rolleyes:

Weren't quite a few members of MAIG criminals themselves? I saw a number in America's First Freedom a couple years ago, but I can't remember the details.

Already Voted. Thanks for posting!

This is an important poll that we are currently losing on. Let's knock this one out of the park! Take the poll & vote to OPPOSE.
And don't forget to share it.

You make a very good point. My guess is that a lot of the loud-mouthed anti-gunners are themselves people who have lost their right to own guns due to felony convictions, restraining orders, domestic violence issues. And they would please like the rest of us, the law abiding citizens, to be denied our rights, too.

Read the comments on the "Support" side of the page and you will get a good idea of who we are up against in this fight. Here is a bio of average liberal Joe Shmuckately:

Emotional
Believes Aurora and Newtown shooters had Automatic weapons
Believe Automatic weapons are legal
Believe Automatic Weapons are legal and can be "bought at Wal-Mart without a background check"
Think the 2nd Amendment allows the right to have an army during times of war.
Uses some weird terminology such as "Ballistic Bullet"
And thinks anyone parading the street with a gun on in any way is just playing soldier and killing children.

That sums up the comments page.

Oh and I also forgot, they tend to have poor grammar making their message difficult to understand. Hopefully this lack of proper education and grammar is not lost on our congressmen and senators.

I just couldn't let this comment go. This is who is teaching kids up in Michigan.

"I am an administrator in a public school system...In addition, there is NO common sense reason for anyone but police officers to have military assault weapons and/or bullets that pierce protective armor that police wear. And in the last 500 years when have we had to raise our guns to protect ourselves from the tyranny of our government."

Really? the last 500 years and no guns against any government? Apparently this guy(?) didn't study history when he was a student.

Voted to "oppose".

Take the current weapons from our soldiers in the mid east and give them all mini 14s and semi auto Bushmasters and see if anything changes.
