Now that Christmas is over, the "fair & balanced" Fox News website lede headline (from early this afternoon) says the Democrats have declared a war on guns - not even a Cavuto question mark but a statement of Fox fact. The linked article, however, says "Democrats Introduce Expanded Assault Weapons Ban." But for those who don't read articles, the headline says all ya need to know!
Those black helicopters, full of jackbooted government thugs who are on orders from the African/Muslim/Socialist/Communist/Muslim/Agent of the anti-Christ Obama to take your guns away, are coming!!!! Grab yer bibles and yer wimmin and head for the hills.
You just can't make this shit up. Oh, right, if you're Fox News you can!!!!
The 90% number is taken from a Reuters article which quotes a poll taken by Quinnipiac University of Connecticut. Quinnipiac questioned just under 1800 registered Connecticut voters for this poll, a state that has very progressive gun laws and leans predominately left. Reuters headline says; “Over 90% of Americans”, which I guess is technically correct since Connecticut voters are Americans, but we know this is not how they (or the MSM) are portraying it. They are extrapolating their data from a liberally leaning/gun unfriendly state to the whole country. More left wing games. More left wing lies.
Here is the link to the Universities release on the poll details: http://www.quinnipiac.edu/institutes-and-centers/polling-institute/connecticut/release-detail?ReleaseID=1859
Key detail is in the releases bolded header: “March 6, 2013 – Connecticut Voters Back Most Gun Measures 2-1 Or More, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; 93% Want Background Checks For All Gun Buyers”.
First paragraph of the release goes on to reconfirm the poll was done only in CT.
Sorry to piss on your parade and your little happy dance, but it appears your blind hatred of guns, gun owners, and the GOP has left you ignorant and alone to piss into the wind and tell yourself it’s raining…
Thanks for playing. Please try again.
