News 12 Long Island has a poll on "assault weapon" registration in NYS. Today is the deadline to register in NYS.

The good folks at LongIslandFirearms.com have already moved it from 70/30 Yes, to 77/23 No!

The poll is in the lower right hand corner of the page.

Help make it a blow out!

FUAC!

Same story....Criminals aren't going to register them.

What I would do....is photograph the gun and any numbers and put them away. If it/they get stolen...you can report the actual gun.

This is what people should be told to do. IMHO

Does the law require all governmental agencies to register their assault weapons?

No, I guess it doesn’t.

Looks like Cablevision should have left the question alone. They didn't expect this response.

Exactly. But assault weapon sounds scary. So it is catchy.

I venture to guess that most Americans don’t own any assault weapons. But the propagandists don’t care.

I was going to keep those long, sharp knives kept at arm’s reach in my kitchen a secret but the kid in PA ruined it for me.

I await ‘knife control’ and ‘assault cutlery’ any day now.

Ah, "assault weapon" -- a made-up name:


  "The semi-automatic weapons' menacing looks, coupled with the public's
   confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic
   assault weapons anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to
   be a machine gun can only increase that chance of public support for
   restrictions on these weapons."

it’s at (205) 6% yes! CNN must be “freeping” the poll. But that only accounts for a couple of votes.

Yup. But, I am very happy to affect the results of the poll like this one.

The same people who believe the BS about assault weapons will probably not know that the poll was skewed. Lol.

They are probably wondering why so many people are against it? Lol.

FReeEEped.

Surprised at the results. Don’t know much about the Long Island area of NY, I expected the results to be the exact opposite. Either that or we FReepers are making a BIG impact (let’s hope so and let it be so!!).

This is good news:

Yes (563) 10%
No (5134) 90%

Poll: Do you know what an assault rifle is?
Can you define it?
Can you defined how it is different from hunting rifles or battle rifles?

The poll question is indeed vague. In light of recent events, are knives also “assault weapons” now?
