    there was a story about guns and how an online poll had shown that most people, including NRA members wanted more background checks. I've seen that quoted several times but no one has been able to give me any info as to who conducted the poll or even when. No actual figures either.
    I know the NRA didn't give out it's membership list so how would anyone know who is and who isn't a member?
    Plus how would they keep the anti-gun nuts from voting that they're an NRA member or even keep people from voting multiple times (not that they would do that of course, being lawful citizens and all that).

    Even fox news is lying about background checks. Earlier today they said a fox news poll is showing 90%+ people are in favor of universal background checks. All government controlled media sites (cnn,msnbc, fox etc..) are pushing this agenda.

    I wouldn't use that on my fish. I only use it to start the fire in the fireplace.

    Isn't this a Republic, representative of all the people? People lean to much on Democracy.

    Probabaly a slanted sample of NRA members from the Northeast States. Also poll was taken minutes after Sandy Hook I'm sure. These people have no concience and while the rest of us were wiping tears they were stepping up efforts and organizing against us.

    The one I'm asking about has been around for several years and has been "quoted" many times, but nowhere can I find any data from it nor even who ran the poll. Must be like the "40% of gun sales are unregistered" that we see being quoted now.
