"POLL: Do you support the sale of military style rifles to the public?"

Yeah, we know ARs aren't military rifles but hit the poll anyway.

Just voted and 79% said yes, they support selling military style rifles to citizens. Can't tell where the media group is located that started the poll.

I just hit it. It currently is overwhelmingly supportive of gun rights. I wonder how long they will keep it up given the fact that it is not going according to their narrative.

It's amusing to refresh just the results page. You can watch the counter on the "Yes" votes climb fast....the "No" votes only move occasionally.

The station is in Nashville, so the results aren't that shocking or skewed.

Yes is now over 21,000. I won't have expected that wide of a range.
