    Yes No
    or view results


    Currently the vote is 57% yes with more than 32,000 votes.

    I know these polls are not scientific and hold no water when it comes to any real debate, but it does indicate that this will be a topic that will get a lot of attention over the next several months.

    Legislation banning the kind of multiple-round ammunition magazine used shootings was introduced Tuesday evening in the U.S. House.

    "I know what it's like to have tragedy brought to your life in a split-second by a madman with high-capacity ammunition magazines," said McCarthy, whose husband was killed and son seriously wounded by a gunman on the Long Island Railroad in 1993. "I'm working to stop it from happening again."

    "This nation has come together before to support this simple, common-sense measure, and it is the law in several states right now," she said Tuesday afternoon. "It is a small sacrifice that law-abiding gun owners can make once again in order to increase everyone's safety

    Interesting, 56 for, 44 against. Kind of shows the typical liberal viewer of CNN. That most probable either haven't read the Constitution, have little understanding of it, or really don't like the idea of a Republic - but in favor of a Democracy form of government.

    You aren't surprised by the outcome of such a poll hosted at Communist News Network?

    ETA: The Tuscon rampage is the lead story on that page. I should have known.
