There is currently a poll going around Facebook whether or not you would support a federal hand gun Ban. The results are AWESOME!!!

So for, as of the time I am writing this thread, it sits at:

Drum Roll please.....








1% = Not Sure
7% = Yes (I would support a fed hand gun ban)
92% = NO (Hell no I wont support a handgun ban)

Here is a link to the poll. Comments are heating up as well.

Well, there we have it. Popular t.v. media tells us we are crazy. The poll shows us what people actually think.
The t.v. lies? what? lol.

I use facebook all the time. If you have a lot of friends or acquaintances it's convenient and fun. Plus, the NRA has a facebook account and I'm glad to display their link, and information, to the people who need to be exposed to it the most...

Only been on facebook a short time and didn't know the NRA had a page. Will be adding that soon.

I know there are a lot of facebook haters (I used to be one) but regardless of your feelings on it, this poll is somewhat encouraging.

The "Assault Weapon" poll is on the poll results page, on the right, next to the comments, with the other "Popular Polls" links.

For all you who hate Facebook but have an account please vote.

Facebook is where young Americans are at, those that will vote on laws in the future. Lets show them early on where we stand.

Yep. Exactly. It's another way to viral advertise pro-gun ideas to a broad anti and/or neutral audience.

Does the NRA have an official profile? Many hits come back if you search NRA.

Sent the results to my senator along with my opposition to AB962. Politicians understand polls and numbers = staying in office.

Many of us have been using Facebook for quite some time to spread pro 2A info and messages. Students for Concealed Carry on Campus has been the biggest and most successful of such.

Well there's this "page": http://www.facebook.com/MudCamper?ref=profile#/pages/Fairfax-VA/National-Rifle-Association/22561081832

and this "group": http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2246211058

Join both!
