Poll at the Denver Post on the proposed Magazine Ban.
Vanity | 15 March, 2013 | marktwain

Posted on 03/15/2013 10:18:28 AM PDT by marktwain

There is a poll at the Denver Post on the proposed magazine ban. It is about 1/3 the way down on the right hand side.

Be careful about the questions. The first response is "for" to overturn the ban.

Link to the Poll


TOPICS: Politics; Society
KEYWORDS: banglist; co; communism; communists; coup; denverpost; guncontrol; magazineban; progressiveagenda; secondamendment
Denver post articles may not be excerpted on FR, so the need for this vanity, that only gives a link.

Here you go :




Post Poll - Overturn Gun Bill?

Assuming state House Bill 1224, which limits gun magazines to 15 rounds, will become law, how would you vote on a 2014 ballot measure to overturn it?

Total Votes = 15348
For. I oppose the limit and would vote to overturn the bill.
 12164 Votes, or 79.25 %
Against. I support the limit and would vote to uphold the bill.
 3065 Votes, or 19.97 %
Unsure. I haven't decided yet.
 119 Votes, or 0.775 % t decided yet.

Good Lord what a poorly written and obviously misleading poll question. Granted, the voting is in pro-gun favor, the wording is horrible.

Important revelation regarding the mandatory background checks.

Licensed dealers would only be able to charge $10 for background checks on private sales.

They can’t afford to perform the service at that price.

Usually $25 - $35.

Would eliminate sales via gunbroker.com.

Currently, the background check is a “free government service”, for both retail and private sales, via licensed dealers.

Mandatory background checks ONLY work, if all firearms are first ALL registered.

It’s $10 here in Oregon, has been foreever.

Free Gov service? Did not know that, if it’s free why are they charging YOU $25-$35 to make a phone call?

Colorado State has been covering cost for in-store sales, by licensed dealers.

Licensed dealers charge the fee for privates sales, either consignment, or out of state transfers, such as buying via gunbroker.com.

changed, but still freep worthy:

“During Colorado’s current legislative session, the majority Democrats have passed several gun-control bills, civil unions, in-state tuition for illegal immigrant children, and are poised to take on the death penalty and a major tax hike for education. Are they overreaching?’

Too Late! (I just got home) — but here’s the NEW poll:

During Colorado’s current legislative session, the majority Democrats have passed several gun-control bills, civil unions, in-state tuition for illegal immigrant children, and are poised to take on the death penalty and a major tax hike for education. Are they overreaching?

This could use a Good FReeping too

Yes. 82.33 %
No. 16.18 %
Unsure. 1.479 %

Yes. They are ignoring a large segment of the electorate.
2189 Votes, or 82.85 %

No. This is the will of the voters who elected them to office.
415 Votes, or 15.70 %

Unsure. I’m waiting to see what actually becomes law.
38 Votes, or 1.438 %

The Denver comPost waited until the poll got down to 53% then closed it. Your thread effectively documents their manipulative behavior. Thanks!

Hi there. Probably 1st and last post on your forum. Ran across it during a search. Looks like the poll is still going. But has suddenly gotten close. ?????? Here it is:

It’s worse than that! Something looked funny, and due to a lack of desire to sleep, I started tracking. Basically someone has hacked it and are adding an average of 26 votes per minute to the “keep the ban” column. And this is with it no longer being on the front page. I have screen shots and a nice Excel SS if anyone wants to see. If they don’t stop it by 06:00 Colorado time it should be around ~29,000.

You must have a good deal more technical expertise than I do. Feel free to post your evidence, it will be welcomed here. I don’t know that anything would embarrass the propagandists at the Denver comPost but it’s still good to document what they are doing. Or not doing. Thanks for adding to the discussion.

Hickenlooper also referred to other bills the Democratic-controlled legislature has passed this session, including civil unions for same-sex couples and in-state tuition for illegal immigrant students.

"Each of these bills is about community in some way," he said. "This is an effort to build a better community in Colorado."
