    I respectfully disagree.

    My position is that it must suck to be Petey or Pauly ANY day. Recent events may serve to accentuate their degree of suckiness, but I maintain that they sucked hard long before and will suck hard long after “these days” come to pass.

    Isn’t it remarkable that within the pro-gunny movement, we can have civil discourse even when we disagree?

    The text says, “A solid majority of the U.S. public …”

    But with numbers like this, they might also have phrased it, “By more than a 3-to-1 margin, the U.S. public supports …”

    Interesting how the media can “pimp” the numbers when they want to. It’s true that 72-to-20 is a “solid majority”, but come on! If the poll results had come out the other way around, they would have said, “By a nearly 4-to-1 margin, the U.S. public overwhelmingly opposes …”

    I don’t know. It does also say that the majority of people want stricter gun laws. That doesn’t fill me with warm and fuzzies :)
