    It says the page cannot be found. Like the poll was removed or something. Maybe the poll didn't agree with their opinion.

    You have to search their site, but this is what I found:



    POLL: Ban high-capacity ammunition clips?
    Should the Florida Legislature ban high-capacity ammunition clips, such as those used in the Arizona shooting?
    Absolutely. There is no need for anybody to have an ammunition clip that fires more than 30 bullets without reloading. What reasonable use can there be for something like this, unless you want to do harm? Get rid of them, no matter what the NRA says. (539 responses)
    26%

    No way. The ammunition clips are legal, and the Second Amendment protects the rights of law-abiding gun owners to have them. Just because some people are squeamish about guns, you can't take away basic rights. Get your hands off our guns. (1573 responses)

    (Results not scientific)

    I found the poll in the "Opinion" section. Scroll down to where it says TODAY'S BUZZ then look at Tuesday...

    Just FWIW, a friend worked at an anti-gun newspaper for a while, and one of the jobs of the newbies was to write fake letters to the editor agreeing (what else) with the paper's editorial policies. The editor and several reporters had permits and carried guns, while they wrote articles on banning guns for "the wrong people" (everyone else). My friend didn't quit solely for that reason, but the lies and sickening hypocrisy (plus sexual harassment from the publisher on down) finally got to her.

    "Straw" polls are pretty much worth what the descriptive adjective says.......but they can be trend indicators that can institute polling with recognized strictures and methodology that really means something !! >MW
