Please FREEP this poll - GUN CONTROL - Sonoma County, Calif.
Santa Rosa Press Democrat ^ | 3/3/2010 | GunsandBibles

Posted on 03/03/2010 10:14:31 AM PST by GunsAndBibles

Should more controls be placed on gun ownership? Yes 38% Probably 8% No 52% Unsure 3%

Number of votes cast: 393


TOPICS: Miscellaneous; US: California
KEYWORDS: armedcitizen; banglist; freep; freepthispoll; poll
Poll is 1/4 way down on right side. Sonoma is a liberal leaning county just north of San Francisco and Marin county. Note that even without a freep, 52% are AGAINST more gun laws; as if we don't have enough already in Calif.

Also, the Sonoma sheriff is now starting to check the fingerprint database for ALL detainees for immigration status. That now makes 11 of 58 Calif counties running the check. Story here:

I love how the question is always framed as “more controls” vs. “status quo”. What about people who think what we already have is too much? OTOH, the meek wording helps shift more people into the most pro-gun column the poll DOES have, plus at least they didn’t split the good guy vote like they always do, to make sure THEY get the single most popular answer.

There are 22,000 laws, but we still need “more controls”.

Effin loons.

“I love how the question is always framed as “more controls” vs. “status quo”. “

It’s because libtards think gun controls do something about gun violence. Because they don’t, they look around and see that there’s still plenty of it around so we need more instead of getting a clue that when guns are outlawed, only outlaws have them.

Love that 9% voting “probably” or “unsure.” Wonder why they would even bother giving the poll a click.

They’re waiting for a popular consensus so they will know how to think correctly. Similar to a past President I can think of.

What I really hate is when pollster pose a question and the literally correct answer will be read the OPPOSITE of intended. Example: “Do you approve of George W. Bush’s job performance?” You’re screwed. You can’t put “No” because then they’ll count you (and use your vote to beat him with) as disapproving because he’s too CONSERVATIVE! But you can’t say “Yes” either because that means you think he’s doing the right thing. D’oh!

They probably just clicked on that option when their finger twitched on the mouse. Gore votes that went to Buchanan, IOW.

Considering the current Resident, you have an excellent point. Heck, if I think about it for two seconds, I’d even rather have Jimmah.
