Possible USA Today gun poll scam

Rivrdog reports it.

The USA Today ran a poll back in 2007, asking the question "Does the Second Amendment give individuals the right to bear arms?"

The answer, of course is "No", as the Bill of Rights grants no rights - it simply enumerates what inalienable rights the government can never interfere with.

In Second Amendment email lists this poll gets brought up again and again, by well-meaning folks who want to push the "Yes" total up.

There is no proof that people accessing this poll are opening themselves to malware, but why take the chance?

If the poll was legitimate back in 2007, no one except gunnies and possibly people wanting to infect your PC or phish for information are watching it these days.

This poll's question is the anti-gunner version of a reporter asking if you have stopped beating your wife. Any answer will be used against you.
