    I'm in. PLEASE VOTE!!!!

    AT this time, no's lead by a bunch. This is as mainstream media as it gets here. Thousands said yesterday at IGOLD but no paper covered it TRib or Herald. Sam @5 seconds of video on NBC last night used in conjunction with the "school shootings increase".
    When I joined, I swore to protect and defend the Constitution. No one ever said I was relieved of that oath.

    Results of Chicago's WGN Online Poll on Illinois Conceal Carry

    Yesterday, WGN online posted a poll, on a very popular talk show, asking if Illinois should become a concealed carry state? In the early part of the morning, those opposed had outnumbered by a large margin those who were in favor of conceal carry. Thanks to Chemsoldier, we were able to alert our side, including other forums such as The High Road and HK.94.com. The table turned very quickly in our favor.

    The final results of the WGN online poll was a blowout in favor of conceal carry in Illinois:

    "Should Illinois become a concealed carry state?"
    Total voting: 3,771
    Yes - 2,777 (73.6%)
    No - 996 (26.4%)

    Thanks to everyone who voted. We need to keep alert on these online polls as they can affect the public perception of public willingness to accept conceal carry in Illinois.

    To view the actual results of the poll go to http://wgnradio.com/index.php?option...485&Itemid=127 right above the current poll there is a drop down box where you can select the poll "Should Illinois become a conceal carry state?".

    Look at these taglines -

    For struggle, Solidarity and Socialism! I swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Obama. Our laws and his will, according to him. We will not overthrow the government with violence. We shall stand, remain and be the law of his realm forever. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead for Obama to deliver them from evil.
    Are they SERIOUS!?!? I mean that's a better parody than even we could come up with!

    That Obama site is just too much

    I know - it really is too good to be true... I might have to sign up just to troll around a little

    ETA On second thought, after looking around for another 10 minutes I don't think I'd be able to stand it. I think my ears are bleeding already and I didn't even register

    Was going to vote but the only poll now is for "R" rated movies. Good luck Illinois, hope you get your laws changed.

    Someone on the "other" channel is saying the Obama forum is a parody and anyone believing it as gospel is very gullible.He puts up no citations to support his contention however.
    Maybe true,maybe not.Not worth the trouble to find out,IMO.

    You may have hit it on the head elC!

    I gave a moments thought to joining and trying to educate them.

    But then I figured that even the fact the US Gun control started as racism, a way to keep newly freed slaves from owning firearms wouldn't matter to them given the hatred I saw.

    Frankly, I guess I have been in my socio-economic bubble for too long. I actually commented to my wife that the level of hatred surprised me.

    Need to file that away and remember I guess . . . .
