I did already, but polls are useless anyway for two reasons.
  1. First they limit the discussion. This one didn't ask the obvious question "Does the government have any business checking into my background in the first place if I want to buy a gun?" and
  2. If they show what the liberal organization wants to show then they are ballyhooed about. If they show that Americans believe in freedom rather than unlimited totalitarianiasm, then the the media either buries them, alters the results, or claims that sites like FR exerted undue influence.
A couple of years ago there was a BBC poll on some gun related issue. I was checking it ever hour or so. The pro-gun side was steadily pulling ahead, when all of a sudden there was a vast influx of votes all on the anti-gun side. I assume the BBC web site sysop was told to skew the results, because about twice as many anti-gun votes went in during the course of an hour than the total of all cast in the previous 6 hours or so.
