    Poll: Public Disarmament in Illinois?

    Gun poll in Cook County, IL
    Right NOW in CHICAGO:

    To to justify passage of gun control ordinances designed to close all gun shops, then ban and confiscate the guns owned by citizens of Cook county Illinois, the County Board is conducting a telephone poll.

    Here is how to voice your opposition to this infringement on the rights of Chicagoland residents:
    Call 1-312 -603-6400 and select Option #1 when prompted.
    At the next prompt, select Option #1 again.
    Then, when prompted to vote on the gun control ordinance, press #2.
    Call! Because the rights we fight for are the ones we keep. You should also forward this alert on to all your gun owning friends and have them vote too. You should also post this alert to any and all Internet bulletin boards or blogs to which you belong.

    YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A RESIDENT OF COOK COUNTY TO VOTE!

    This is a very dangerous precedent. We need to act on this. I voted.

    I posted it on a pro 2A area of a Motorcycle Forum I frequent, but not on any other forums.

    ban and confiscate the guns owned by citizens of Cook county Illinois

    Suzanna Gratia-Hupp on the right of the citizen to own and carry guns.
    Because of their tremendous reputation, the soldiers of the old guard were permitted liberties which would not have been tolerated in other units. When Napoleon met Tsar Alexander of Russia at Tilsit in 1807 he pointed to a terribly scarred Grenadier. "What do you think of men who can endure such wounds?" he asked. " and what do you think of men who can inflict them?" replied the Tsar. "They're all dead!" interjected the Grenadier, settling the issue once and for all.

    I used to live in illinois, and I have friends still there that would be affected by this, so I did my part, and am passing word to them.

    How do we know what we are voting on when the recording only says if we support it press one and if we oppose it press 2? There is no description of what we are supporting or opposing. That is a very dangerous poll in which to vote.

    Made the call. I don't see how this can be construed as "voting" though. Am I supposed to believe this is how they vote in new laws in Chicago?
