UPDATED: CNN Caught Red-Handed Sabotaging Gun Control Poll!

Eric Reed is the President and Founder of Gun Rights Across America (GRAA). They have chapters in all 50 states, and a membership of over 200,000 freedom loving Americans. GRAA wholeheartedly believes that the Second Amendment is worth fighting for.

UPDATE: I’ve attempted contacting CNN countless times through email, Twitter, and via phone. Up to this point, they’re refusing comment.

It’s amazing how far the liberal gun-grabbing lefties will go to justify their agenda. Earlier today, CNN posted posted the poll (http://edition.cnn.com/index.html?mobile=0), “does the U.S. need stricter gun control?” Needless to say, their poll has some major issues, and some would say it’s downright sabotage!

The first problem, is that the poll is placed on CNN’s International Edition. It’s nowhere to be found on the CNN U.S. Edition! The U.S. Edition has the below section in the place where the poll is located on their International Edition!

No "stricter gun control" poll to be found!

No “stricter gun control” poll to be found!

Pardon me, but as an American, why would we care what foreigners think about our laws? The polls results were very heavily leaning towards “Yes,” until many gun-rights groups and social media pages began posting the voting link for all Americans to see.

In this image, the voting results start to slowly shift, as word about this poll spreads on social media.

In this image, the voting results start to slowly shift, as word about this poll spreads on social media.

The second major issue, is that many “No” votes are not being tallied. This was originally brought to attention by “The Truth About Guns” Facebook page. I initially had my doubts, so I began voting “No” from several different computers and mobile devices. Sure enough, the fans from “The Truth About Guns” are right on the money! Many of the “No” votes are not being counted!

It’s liberal lunacy at it’s finest, but it’s also somewhat reassuring. The liberal main stream media knows the only way to push their gun-grabbing agenda, is to lie and cheat! Sorry CNN, epic fail. Game, set, match!

    I have a Picture of when I voted, seems alot of Votes were misplaced..lmao CNN must be a democrat paper

  2. Jerry Harlan May 28, 2014 at 12:22 pm #

    I voted from 3 different devices and none of my No votes were counted.

  3. guvment cheese May 28, 2014 at 12:40 pm #

    You should vote yes a few times to test that theory. I know, I hate the idea of that myself but then you would know that the no vote is more likely running 10 to 1. And proof of your theory about not counting all no votes.

  4. AR-PRO May 28, 2014 at 12:40 pm #

    Would you expect any less from the Crappy News Network?

  5. Spencer May 28, 2014 at 12:55 pm #

    It doesn’t update instantly. Every ten to fifteen minutes you can see the no votes spike. Yes, CNN blows, but no votes would not be so far ahead if the situation was what you claim.

  6. Chris Reynolds May 28, 2014 at 1:17 pm #

    I personally spread the poll site to 35 gun groups and 500,000 individual people. CNN is lying,.

  7. Jay May 28, 2014 at 1:37 pm #

    LOL checked before and after mine didn’t count

  8. michael folk May 28, 2014 at 1:49 pm #

    telling lies again!

  9. Rick Snow May 28, 2014 at 2:05 pm #

    I voted, checked the total number of NO votes. Came back 20minutes later. Voted & rechecked to find the number of NO votes had actually declined from my first visit.

  10. Michaelh May 28, 2014 at 2:11 pm #

    I’m from Australia and I’ve voted No on the poll. I’ve also posted the poll on gun related social media forums.

  11. Doug Youngs May 28, 2014 at 2:25 pm #

    What the hell is a BUZZPO? Was I supposed to be impressed by this? Ok, my opinion, the little BUZZPO poll about what I thought of this story didn’t allow me to vote my heart which tells me thios whole idea is stupid. Number one, the 2nd Amendment does noy give individuals the right to own guns. The writer of the 2nd Amendment said so when he wrote it, and what he was talking about was an established army with rules, not a bunch of stupid people running around shooting each other. It did not officially become the law that people had a right until the supreme court over turned 6 previous ruling on the subject and gave people their precious right! My thought on the gun people and what they say is their right to own guns, you are nothing put a bunch of pathetic cowards who don’t give a damn about anything but yourselves. The country has a serious gun problem and way too many kids are getting gunned down by idiots with rights legally buying guns because a bunch of cowards won’t take on the problem. People with guns shooting other people is not the fucking answer to the problem!

    • BuzzPo May 28, 2014 at 2:35 pm #

      Wow, you should be a Supreme Court Justice! The 2nd Amendment is the only Amendment that does not apply to individuals? Those crafty founders, all of them armed with the best weaponry available at the time and yet they didn’t protect their right to own them. They must have been playing some crazy, three-level chest, owning weapons but wanting the government to be able to disarm them. You, young lady, are a genius.

    • Tom September 3, 2014 at 7:24 am #

      Once again, name calling when you have no real argument. Sorry, adults are trying to have a decent conversation here, go upstairs, there are cookies and milk waiting for you, and don’t forget to say ‘Thank you mommy’ this time!

    • Hal Gailey September 3, 2014 at 3:04 pm #

      You seem to misunderstand what the constitution is. IT gives nor imparts NO RIGHTS. What it does is enumerate the rights we already have that the government must not tread upon.

      The right to bear arms is intrinsic to the human condition. The 2nd amendment merely illustrates a reason why the government must not tread upon it, not the only reason, not the most important reason, merely the reason most pertinent to put into a document enumerating the powers of a state formed with the assistance of armed citizens and rebelling against an empire that used force to impose its will an ocean away.

    • Chris Want September 7, 2014 at 9:08 pm #

      “too many kids getting gunned down by idiots with rights legally buying guns”……But aren’t all of these tragic incidents of which you speak generally happening in “GUN FREE” zones and carried out by criminals or mentally unstable persons who get firearms on the black market or by stealing them from family or friends?….So exactly how does more “GUN REGULATION”/”GUN CONTROL” put an end to that.

  12. Umami (@MediaExposedDay) May 28, 2014 at 2:29 pm #

    What SOME of you Right-wingers don’t understand , CNN works for NWO , it’s not about L v R . The big players or Global Power wants to disarm U.S.

    • BuzzPo May 28, 2014 at 2:33 pm #

      Got it. Thanks for letting us know. Having spent ten years working in New York media circles and Hollywood, that comes as a bit of a shock. But, you have it all figured out. Bravo, you are the smart one.

  13. Tim May 28, 2014 at 2:44 pm #

    well doug once again you speak out loud and show the world how stupid you truly are, we as Americans have the right to own our guns and we can also carry our guns and do you know why ???? so in case a sniveling coward like you ever gets attacked you will have responsible gun owners to save your life. Please feel free to read the constitution again because you must have red red fish blue fish or something like that, you know down your ability to comprehend,

  14. Conrado May 28, 2014 at 2:45 pm #

    I’m from Brazil… I know that I have nothing to do with your laws, but I still support NRA, and pro-gun groups.
    It’s not just about laws, It’s about thoughts too, they have influence in our country. Brazilian stupid anti-gun groups use USA as a bad example of gun violence, and that piss me off.
    I’m glad that I can vote and support your gun rights!
    Everyone is welcome to support our gun-rights groups too: “Campanha do Armamento” and “Movimento Viva Brasil”.

  15. Bob May 28, 2014 at 2:51 pm #

    Did you forget to take notice that the majority of the school shootings you are referring to were done by left wing nut jobs? It’s not the standard law abiding gun owners that are causing this to happen. Liberal left wing nut jobs are. Check that fact all you want.

  16. Rob May 28, 2014 at 2:51 pm #

    It’s all academic.

    The Second Amendment isn’t subject to polls. It could be 100%, we’re STILL not going to allow new illegal infringements.

  17. Carl Stevenson May 28, 2014 at 3:08 pm #

  18. mark May 28, 2014 at 3:12 pm #

    Doesn’t surprise me at all, the Nicoderm interests (Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, RWJF) did the same thing with smoking ban polls. RWJF provided funding to American Lung Assoc.,, AHA, ACS etc to push the bans, poll manipulation was a common tactic.

  19. joe May 28, 2014 at 3:33 pm #

    Are you really that stupid or do you just play a moron in the movies! First of all you are right the government and the 2nd amendment does not give us rights to own a gun. Yeah i said that and i am a 2nd amenment advocate. FIRST OF ALL, (Trying to educate you a bit), read the 2nd amendment. NOWHERE does it say it creates a standing army. NOWHERE! SEcondly the 2nd amendment is divided into two clauses. The first speaking about militias being the means of securing a free state (NOTICE It does not say federal government but FREE STATE)

    ” A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state,”

    And the second part of the clause that Absolutely recognizes that the peoples right to KEEP and BEAR (Own and carry/brandish/use/tote around/carry open,/carry concealed), And this is the most important part. LIMITS THE GOVERNMENT ALL GOVERNMENT by prohibiting it from infringing on this right.

    ” the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

    FURTHERMORE NOWHERE in the 2nd amendment does it limit it to guns. It says ARMS. The definition then and today is weapons and ammunition; armaments..(guns, shotguns, rifles, automatic rifles, rpgs, stinger missles, knives, hammers, maces, swords, clubs, you name it is all included). IT does not limit it to handguns, rifles or shotguns. Arms includes automatic weapons, rpgs whatever we need to secure a free state.
    BTW, just check out Ted nugents armament collection. he has rpgs, automatic weapons, tanks, everything.

    Who gave us this right? Not the 2nd amendment but God himself. Go back to the beginning where it says

    ” Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, ”
    ” that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

    Notice it did not say only life liberty and pursuit of happiness, but AMONG ALL OF OUR RIGHTS given to us By God himself are these three plus what is added to the bill of rights.

    So you nor anyone else, has the right, to dictate, control, ban, or bar anyone from owning and using a weapon.

  20. jschlue2 May 28, 2014 at 3:38 pm #

    The 2nd Amendment certainly does apply to individuals. Do you even know what a militia is? It is an emergency military force comprised of armed individual citizens, not the regular army. Besides, why would you need to amend the Constitution to allow the army to have arms? And it’s not the people exercising their rights who are killing people, it’s the whackos and criminals who would find a gun any way they could to carry out their plans. Besides, they’re already breaking the law my committing murder, so do you think a law against owning a gun would stop them?

  21. Mike May 28, 2014 at 3:44 pm #

    Doug Youngs, for what reason are you not allowed to own guns? I’m going to guess you’ve been found mentally unstable for one reason or another. I would put real money on the fact that you’re not legally allowed to own firearms; of course you think something you’re not allowed to do is stupid and no one else should be allowed!

  26. Joseph Gadberry May 28, 2014 at 5:06 pm #

    The voting was even worse until Facebook users noticed and started sharing the link to the poling. It’s so obviously biased that the FCC should shut them down.

  27. CBO May 28, 2014 at 5:07 pm #

    Really these polls are crazy. No matter how it turns out, are we now a nation that decides the difference between right and wrong via polls? Sounds like the book 1984. It’s like no cares what the bill of rights says about it. It seems that if we were given the right to bear arms, then it doesn’t matter if the majority of Americans who are uninformed think we should not. Unless they change the amendment (something the likes of Pelosi, Reid, Obama, and Feinstein would like to do), the poll is meaningless. Furthermore, have Americans really become so gullible that they believe everything the media tells them? Never mind, I know the answer to the last question.

  28. Jerry Taylor May 28, 2014 at 5:20 pm #

    seriously 700 votes means we need tougher gun laws lol. And these people that go to cnn and vote are usually liberals anyways. and besides you cannot infringe on our right to bear arms. Try it and see what happens. You my liberal friends havent seen what I have and yes I am prepared!

  29. Jerry Taylor May 28, 2014 at 5:28 pm #

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    Does everyone see the comma between state and the The? it divides the idea. and you all have been to english class I would assume, means that we as the people have an individual right to keep and bear arms. End of story Doug blow it out your ass. It was the people who have guns that gave you the ability to carry such a narrow minded and factually incorrect opinion. you sir need to go back to school.

  30. Mike Cashwell May 28, 2014 at 5:32 pm #

    Doug Youngs, take a look at Chicago and other cities with strict gun laws… Do you think it is a coincidence that the places with the most strict gun laws have the most violent crime? Do you think it is a coincidence that the majority of the mass shootings have been in gun free zones? It is so simplistic to say guns should be outlawed… ask someone in Australia how that is working out for them…

  31. RUSS May 28, 2014 at 6:17 pm #

    I just had flash backs of listening to my ex when she went off her meds. The only gun problem in this country, is that the Gov’t is giving them to alien criminals and trying to take them from law abiding AMERICANS while creating a TROJAN army within our borders (that will not be bound by the official military oath) . The real problem is that too many disturbed people are allowed to roam free because their families don’t want to admit that they should be in treatment, for fear of embarrassment. The next problem is that media is bought and scared to tell the real stories of high level corruption, instead we hear stories of lost animals and local construction scandals. Those of us that do care about others and their freedoms, will be the first to step up and defend your right to be ignorant and stupid (with whatever guns we have managed to keep away from the Gov’t).

  32. Steve May 28, 2014 at 6:31 pm #

    Wasn’t the militia was made up of the common man? Many or should I say most of which used their privately owned firearms during the writing of the second amendment.

  33. Michael May 28, 2014 at 6:44 pm #

    Thank you for your support Conrado. I have a friend who moved here from the UK and his first request, upon getting his US citizenship, was to shoot a gun. I recently returned from the Netherlands where I ran into a guy who goes to wants to come to the US to hunt and own firearms.

    I know you good people are out there.

  34. crackers May 28, 2014 at 6:48 pm #

    I do agree that the poll should be on the US Edition, but still, let’s all calm down. I just voted yes, refreshed, and the number didn’t change. As someone else said, it probably doesn’t update every split second of the day. So now the poll has been artificially flooded with “no” votes. Great way to maintain integrity.

  35. Rodin May 28, 2014 at 6:57 pm #

    Wow douggie BOY, you win the idiot prize for the day. “Number one, the 2nd Amendment does noy give individuals the right to own guns.” Really? C’mon dude you CAN’T POSSIBLY be that stupid. “The writer of the 2nd Amendment said so when he wrote it” WHAT? You just pulled that one completely out of your ass. “and what he was talking about was an established army with rules” Uh, no dipshit, THEY were talking about a MILITIA…..a hell of a lot different than a standing army (which they were completely OPPOSED to).

  36. bryan May 28, 2014 at 7:15 pm #

    anyone else notice the “this is not a scientific poll” blurb underneath?

  37. Jim May 28, 2014 at 7:51 pm #

    Son, you are a moron without enough life experience to realize that guns are not the problem in this nation…crime is. Activists telling the “deprived” that they can be excused for their violence and victimization of others. Someday, if you live long enough and quit drinking the Kumbayah Kool Ade or banging the bong if that is your particular form of amusement, perhaps you will have enough intelligence to realize that our being armed as a Nation of free individuals, not as an army, but as a Nation of people who love liberty has kept us free from despotic leaders and invasions by other countries. So you take your pathetic little ideology which would deny people the right to protect themselves against thugs and those with designs on becoming Czars, Emperors, and totalitarian rulers of this country and shove it.

    Just so you people know, I voted yes from 4 different computers, and those votes weren’t tallied either. Get a grip. Its a bug in the system, not some evil agenda.

  41. Melvin May 29, 2014 at 3:19 am #

    Doug Young…….you may want to take deep breaths. Being as old as you are (im guessing well over 200 yrs old since you were there when the document was written) its not good to get worked up. You come across ignorant and with a lack of general knowledge. Im sorry, but your comment is just plain…….idiotic. You are the soul definition and mascot for the side us “cowards” constantly fight against and in most cases have to educate.

  42. Greg Goff May 29, 2014 at 3:49 am #

    “Repubtards” you are so clever. did you come up with that all by yourself?

  43. Felicia May 29, 2014 at 4:56 am #

    I voted and it came back that there were 467 “no” votes. I had a friend vote a few minutes later and it came back that there were 354 “no” votes. Looks to me like when the “no’s” gets to threatening the results they want, they eliminate some of them.

  44. Don Bivens May 29, 2014 at 5:27 am #

    Clearly you have no idea what you’re talking about. A person has an inherent right to defend their own life. Just as I don’t need a piece of paper to tell me I can breathe, I don’t need any paper to tell me I can defend my ability to continue breathing against those who would do me harm. The Constitution merely affirmed what already existed.

    And this country has a serious fat problem, heart health problem, car accident problem, violence problem, and then way way down the list is gun violence. Get over yourself drama queen. People who lawfully purchase guns almost never are involved in “too many kids getting gunned down by idiots.” The people that are doing that are typically lefties like yourself.

    “Some have made the argument, bordering on the frivolous, that only those arms in existence in the 18th century are protected by the Second Amendment. We do not interpret constitutional rights that way. Just as the First Amendment protects modern forms of communications, e.g., Reno v. American Civil Liberties Union, 521 U. S. 844, 849 (1997), and the Fourth Amendment applies to modern forms of search, e.g., Kyllo v. United States, 533 U. S. 27, 35–36 (2001), the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding.”.”

  50. Goodguy with a gun May 29, 2014 at 8:24 am #

    What the hell is a Doug Youngs??
    Let me just start by saying your 100% wrong and speaking out of your ass. Have you EVER read the preamble to our constitution??? our bill of rights is just a piece of paper codifying our NATURAL (or god given depending on your views) rights, that every man woman and child are entitled to. So when you say ” writer of the 2nd Amendment said so when he wrote it” your just another liberal who is to (pick one) Ignorant, lazy, or willing to lie about the truth to make your point seem a littleeee less devoid of logic, reason, or quantifiable data.
    NEXT, the second amendment SPECIFICALLY uses the word militia, “the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms”, not standing army, or government (there are separate documents on that). And your opinion on “stupid people running around shooting each other” is entirely irrelevant and unfounded because the vast majority (over 3 mil firearms estimated conservatively) of firearms and their owners have/ will never use them in a crime. We dont have a gun problem! we have a problem with violence period, but the media only runs stories that push their anti gun agenda, lets not make it into something its not..

    But im just an idiot with a few guns…

  51. Tionico May 29, 2014 at 8:48 am #

    That pesky Second does not GIVE any right to anyone. It merely names, then guarantees, the right to arms to the people: “the right of THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms. Second, “militia” means simply the local people of a given area to provide for their own security. Third, the Constitution prohibits the standing army you think that Ammendment is talking about. There IS NO established army with rules and such. READ the history of the War for Independence… you will be shocked to see how yuo have been lied to. Further, the SCOTUS did declare, in a case about 1875, that the Second Article of Ammendment is not what confers the right, that the right does not arise from, nor is it depend upon the Cnstitutioin, and it predates that Document. “The law” is the Constitution, and the courts can’t change that.
    And please don’t forget… it was a bunch of “stupid farmers with their squirrel guns” that launched the War for Indeendence, and continued it until General Lord Cornwallis signed the treaty at Yorktown and loaded his troops onto some ships and took them back to England.

  52. J.James (@trojanboy123) May 29, 2014 at 8:50 am #

    “the 2nd Amendment does not give individuals the right to own guns” wow the derpt is strong with you….. Who is the right of the people referring to if its not referring to THE people????? it cant be any one else considering it uses an . to clarify the militia AND the people. and another retarded statement is this statement that there is some sort of gun problem in America and some how children are being gunned down you any one with some sort of rights to gun any one down???? I don’t now were you get your whacky ideas from But there is not that many children being gunned down in America its pretty rare and dont even make the top 10 list of preventable deaths of children. WAY more children die from being left un attended in bath tubs then they do from any form of murder. 3 times more kids die from bee stings AT SCHOOL then have been shot to death. and more kids have died from bike accidents. and these so called people guning down kids cause of some right is way nuts no were does any one in the us have a right to just go randomly gunning any one down. Thats called murder. you twitt.and last I checked murder is not legal any ware in the us nore has it ever been a right. EVER nore do law abiding citizens ever go and commit murder with out with out a gun. BTW 3times more murders in the us are committed with fists and hammers then by guns. and gang bangers killing each other which make up more then 1/2 of all gun murders DON’T HAVE A RIGHT TO KILL ANY ONE nore do most of the gang bangers that have guns legally own or posses a fire arms. Or are even intelligent to know what the constitution is or what a right is. Nore do they care. same as liberal scum dont care that in essence gun laws basically guarantee that ONLY criminals get to feel they have a right to carry a gun and commit murder knowing that no law abiding citizen is going to be allowed to have a gun or legally allowed to defend them selves. Criminals don’t follow the law or care if its legal or not to have a gun. BUT they know most law abiding people do follow the law. Hech the very reason any place that does have a so called gun problem are ONLY in places that guns are not legal. Like Chicago Detroit and DC.

  53. Jim Thorp May 29, 2014 at 8:52 am #

    You need to study your history a bit closer. Look up the defining terms of ‘militia’ from the 1780s in the US. Take away the nutjobs, how many mass shootings would have happened in past 20 years? You might be focused on the wrong issue…

  54. Tionico May 29, 2014 at 9:05 am #

    That most recent spate of mayhem, in Isla Vista, California, was carried off in what is an essentially gun free cuonty. The sheriff of Santa Barbara County refuses to allow any of his subjects the right to carry arms in public. Further, that state have some of the most restrictive anti-gun laws in place, which torment and restrict the law abiding, yet do nothing to prevent mass murder: universal background checks, ten day waiting period, full registration, NO provate sales, one gun purchase per month maximum, ten ruond maximum capacioty magazines, and restrictions on ammunition purchases. The murderer in this case got his three handguns by fully complying with ALL those laws. Then, the laws “preventing” him from carrying loaded weapons in public outside his home, carrying them concealed upon his person, and transporting them in a vehicle upon the public roads, workd REAL WELL, didn’t they? He complied with every law as he carefully equipped himself for his “day of vengeance”, then broke every law put in place to prevent his spree…… meanwhile, everyone else in the county was disarmed, per their Sheriff (who needs recalled, or at least dumped in the next election) so had no means of stopping this guy’s rempage.

    And the Ruling Elites want to pass a new batch of “common sense” gun restrictions? STOOOOPID people,m wake up… it aint the chunks of steel and plastic that kill, its the morally depraved perpetrator who holds them that kills. Get it right. Suppose one of his three room mates had been armed….. the perp never would have sliced up his second victim. And none of the rest of his spree could have happened.

    First off you need to read the second amendment.” A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” With that said we don’t have a militia we have what is considered a STANDING ARMY a True Militia is made up of volunteers and train every once in awhile and don’t have dozens of bases spread across the country. Albeit our military personnel haven’t been used against the people ( except for a few rare occasions when someone with a itchy trigger finger opened fire on college protesters) and a few other instances (if you need dates and how many died ill provide them) now to the point about THE PEOPLE since the first part of the second amendment was backhanded like the elites in D.C. wanted the part about the people bearing arms is oh so important because IF OUR MILITARY WAS EVER USED AGAINST THE PEOPLE we would have the means to protect and defend ourselves. You can’t win this argument your wrong but yet you love all your other rights so LEAVE MY 2A RIGHT ALONE. If we’re going debate this I intend to lay it all out there prove you wrong and convert you in the process because a standing army is and always will be a threat to FREEDOM.

    The country has an even bigger problem with drunk driving. Drunk drivers murder 15% more people than are murdered with ALL TYPES of firearms combined. Those are lives that could be saved if we simply banned alcohol. If you weren’t such a bandwagon jumping fool, (and actually cared about saving people from needless death) you’d clammer for an alcohol ban. 53% of murders are committed by African-Americans, who comprise only 13% of our population. Until we can talk about that, and solve that, no meaningful progress can be made in your war. When you control for minority gang killings there is nothing alarming about the US murder rate, and no reason to go around violating our constitutionally protected right to own and carry firearms. We have that right so we can form militias. (…whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…)

  61. chadk May 29, 2014 at 11:34 am #

    Militia is not government controlled or affiliated. .. the supreme court has twice reaffirmed since 2008 that the Second amendment does indeed guarantee a law abiding citizen the right to own firearms. This is all verifiable doing three quick little searches on the web. It takes a person to pull the trigger, so calling it a gun problem is simply hoplophobia and foolish. When someone gets killed in a DUI accident–drivers fault. When there’s a bombing—bomber’s fault.Then ssuddenly there’s a shooting and it’s an inanimate objects fault……nonsense

    are u really that stupid? the supreme court didn’t give us the right to keep & bear arms. it’s a NATURAL right granted by our creator. maybe u need to actually read the 2nd amendment. we have the 2nd to defend ourselves & our freedom from a tyrannical government & it SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. if u don’t understand the part of “shall”, it means the same thing as “must”. that means u have the right to protect urself, & family, & ur property from those who wish to impede on ur rights to life, liberty, & the pursuit of happiness.

    It doesn’t count “yes” votes immediately either. It’s on a delay. Go ahead and try it, you’ll find votes aren’t counted immediately no matter which way you vote. It’s not a conspiracy. The reason it swayed “no” after it was publicized is because more people in the US are now seeing it and voting no.

    Apparently Doug is confused Yet there is one accurate sentence in his diatribe. ” the 2nd Amendment does not give individuals the right to own guns”
    You are absolutely right Doug,
    What the 2nd actually does do is to affirms ones inherited right to own firearms, because rights are not granted by our government.
    Rights are inherited, our founding fathers created the bill of rights to control/limit our government, not the people.
    This nation does not have a “Gun Problem” as you state, it has a violence problem. Outlawing guns will do nothing to stop violence, look to the city of Chicago for a cite. They have the toughest gun laws, yet the highest murder rate per-capita.
    The way our founding fathers have designed things, is so the 2ns amendment is the teeth that defends the rest of our rights.

  68. Lawman May 29, 2014 at 2:35 pm #

    Doug Young and many fools like him believe there is a “gun problem” in America. The truth is there is a stupid people problem. There is a problem with morals and accountability. Guns aren’t the problem but they are often used by criminals for unlawful purposes but they are owned by far more who possess and use them responsibly and lawfully. There are laws that hold people accountable for their actions, new laws will not change how some people choose to use a gun. Take it from this law enforcement officer who has served for over two decades. Most in law enforcement are gun advocates and strong supporters of the Second Amendment. There is no data kept by the federal government that shows how many crimes have been prevented by a citizen who lawfully used or displayed a gun to stop a crime from being committed but I know from real life experience that it is substatial.

    Uhhhhh CNN is not a paper.

  70. TJ May 29, 2014 at 4:04 pm #

    First, try reading the constitution again. “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” Which bit of that was unclear? Oh you mean the other bit before that. Study some history. Every man over the age of 16 WAS considered militia, and as such was bound to keep a rifle of the same quality as the standing army and enough powder and shot to be of use. WE ARE THE MILITIA!

    Nextly, the Supreme court disagrees with you. so theres that bit of fail for you.

    explain to me why most of these incidents occur in “gun free zones” or places the property owners have posted “no guns”? See, we as law abiding carriers tend to, get this, obey the law, and respect personal property rights. If its illegal for us to carry somewhere or the owner has stated they want a no gun zone, we shop elsewhere. read the FBI stats on areas with tight gun laws vs areas that are more in line with the Constitution. You’ll see a funny thing…crminals dont like to operate where their victims can fight back. weird huh?

    SO, what then is the problem? because it is not guns. I’ve been a gun owner my entire life and have yet to commit a crime with one yet, so guys like me arent the problem. which means that me owning a gun isnt the problem. So what then is the problem and as such what is the solution?

    Lastly, do those of us who carry and are willing to intercede in these incidents if we are able, ok? Get a big red shirt with huge white letters that says “I OPPOSE CIVILLIAN GUN OWNERSHIP AND WOULD RATHER DIE THAN BE SAVED BY A ‘GOOD GUY’ WITH A GUN” so that we know a couple things. First is that its not worth our life trying to save you, nor is it worth our ammo. it’ll offend you and hey, ammo’s not cheap these days.
    GFY

  71. Barbara May 29, 2014 at 4:12 pm #

    Doug. I own a gun. Several of them. I am NOT shooting people. I keep it for protection against people who will kill and find guns to kill. Whether there is a law where you couldn’t carry guns or not. Most of the people that commit crimes don’t care about the law anyway.

  72. Machado May 29, 2014 at 5:02 pm #

    In U.S. v. Miller the Supreme court stated that ” the Militia is comprised of all Men between the ages of 16 and 60 and the weapons protected under the second amendment are the SAME weapons of a modern Army.” That means, under the Federal governments OWN definition, an M16 and SAW are protected.

  74. Brett Chambers May 29, 2014 at 6:26 pm #

    Hey Joe.

    You forget that the anti free thought, anti gun, anti God liberals are better than the rest of us mortals. So they see the Constitution as a living, breathing piece of paper that only has one amendment. But that amendment is subject to popular opinion of course.

    The fact is, the left runs on cracked emotional gibberish instead of logic. They think that volume substitutes for intelligence and logic. They are incapable of understanding context, or recognizing truth. Thus the harebrained twisting of words to substantiate the illogical gut reactions that pass for argument with them.

    But I like your point. Just because something didn’t exist in 1774 doesn’t mean it was precluded from the Amendment. The word :”Arms” was included purposefully. Otherwise they would have used “Flintlock” if they wanted to be specific.

  75. Brett Chambers May 29, 2014 at 6:41 pm #

    Wow, Douggie. You need to clean the spit off of your screen. Maybe then your spelling might improve a little.

    You, apparently, have never actually read the Amendment. A militia is under local control, unlike an army, which is under federal control. The National guard is not a militia, because it too can be taken in under federal control.

    The 2nd Amendment not only includes guns, but cannon, rockets, missiles, grenades and bombs. It specifically uses the term “arms” instead of guns. Why? So that the citizenry has the ability to resist an unlawful government and the means to do so.

    Putting it in perspective, something you on the left have a hard time doing, the people that wrote the Constitution had just removed a government that they believed was unjust against unbelievable odds. They new the importance of the people being able to overthrow a tyrannical government. Thus instead of limiting that ability, they certified it in the Constitution.

    But that will never satisfy the hoard that feels that they are smarter than a group of men that risked EVERYTHING to start this great country. Since most of you risk nothing yet demand everything.

    Guess what, WE OWE YOU NOTHING!

  76. Tom M May 30, 2014 at 3:13 am #

    Wow. You really need to read the Federalist papers instead of pretending that you did.

  77. James May 30, 2014 at 7:30 am #

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

    The writers were not talking about an established army when this was written. The Continental Army had already been formed and the militia was all able bodied men who were not in the Army. If you actually read the constitution, it acknowledges the militia as a complete separate entity from the military. Just because the government wants to change the definition of “militia” to fit their agenda does not remove the fact that the framers of The Constitution wanted the people to be freely armed.

    Last time i checked a chicago politician brought his dirty politics to the national stage and with the help of a complicit biased media stole the last election. So, if the Democrooks are so “honest” when it comes to election integrity, why are they putting up such a resistance to voter i.d. laws? Don’t tell me its because they’re racists who don’t want blacks or low income citizens to vote. If you have to show i.d. to cash a check, board a plane, or buy liquor, then it shouldn’t be a barrier to vote and insure election integrity.

    LOL

    “the 2nd Amendment does noy give individuals the right to own guns”.

    Right. It’s the one Amendment in the first 8, all; of which deal with individual rights, which somehow doesn’t apply to individuals. When you were communicating by séance with the “writer” to find out his opinion on the 2nd, did you ask him why he would have written it to guarantee the right to arms to a branch of the government, indeed, a standing army which the majority of the founders thought was anathema to the concept of freedom, having just thrown off the yoke of the British empire?

    ” It did not officially become the law that people had a right until the supreme court over turned 6 previous ruling on the subject and gave people their precious right!”

    Please, provide the rulings that stated this. Presser? Cruikshank? Miller? Explain please where the Court stated the right was a collective rather than individual one.

    “you are nothing put a bunch of pathetic cowards who don’t give a damn about anything but yourselves”.

    Wow, name calling from behind your keyboard. You probably don’t know that in nearly 2 dozen court cases since South v Maryland in 1856 the government has borne no affirmative duty to protect us. Those of us with guns aren’t cowards, we’re realists who understand that 9-1-1 owes us nothing if we are assaulted except a chalk outline and a ride to the morgue.

    “The country has a serious gun problem and way too many kids are getting gunned down by idiots with rights legally buying guns…”

    Wrong. The vast majority of “kids” getting gunned down are killed by criminals who bought the guns illegally (felony) or had their girlfriend / cousin / babymama buy it for them (felony) possess them illegally (felony) and used them to commit yet another felony, typically over drug or gang turf, and often against other gang members, and those criminal “kids” are often tried as adults.

    “People with guns shooting other people is not the fucking answer to the problem!”

    I don’t consider people intent on causing great bodily harm or deadly injury to me or my family to be “people”, and force is the only thing they recognize. The law abiding people with guns aren’t the problem, the criminals who ignore the laws – and useful idiots that believe more laws against the people who follow them (the same as you) – are.

    Doug, you need to study history a bit better. Read the writings of James Mason and James Madison. They wrote the bill of rights.

    In The Federalist Papers #46 James Madison makes it clear why he wrote the 2nd amendment.

    “Let a regular army, fully equal to the resources of the country, be formed; and let it be entirely at the devotion of the federal government; still it would not be going too far to say, that the State governments, with the people on their side, would be able to repel the danger. The highest number to which, according to the best computation, a standing army can be carried in any country, does not exceed one hundredth part of the whole number of souls; or one twenty-fifth part of the number able to bear arms. This proportion would not yield, in the United States, an army of more than twenty-five or thirty thousand men. To these would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million of citizens with arms in their hands, officered by men chosen from among themselves, fighting for their common liberties, and united and conducted by governments possessing their affections and confidence. It may well be doubted, whether a militia thus circumstanced could ever be conquered by such a proportion of regular troops. Those who are best acquainted with the last successful resistance of this country against the British arms, will be most inclined to deny the possibility of it.”
