Hi Illinois friends,

You guessed it, CNN is already running a poll asking if we should be pushing for more gun control due to the recent shootings in the news. I've posted this at Missouri Carry and felt our "friends across the river" could help. The anti-gunners are swaying this in their direction so we need all the help we can get. Thanks in advance for doing all you can!


Here are the results I got;

Do the recent shooting rampages highlight the need for more gun control?
Yes 59% 7310
No 41% 5053
Total Votes: 12363

The poll is about half way down the page in the far right column.

CNN polls are a joke no matter which way it goes. This mornin they did a text poll on Clemens and McNamee. Clemens had 44% in his favor then the next time they showed it he was at 28% Apparently you can text back and change your vote.
