The Captain’s Journal – by Herschel Smith
In Senator Chris Murphy Versus Guns we discussed how Senator Murphy is playing the poll card with his colleagues. The polls support us, he says. But I pointed out that they don’t, and (via David Codrea) here is more evidence.
In an ongoing poll conducted of its membership by Gun Owners of America, 96.2% of over 18,500 respondents have thus far opposed Obama’s universal background check proposal.
So many gun owners tried to register their opposition to banning private gun sales that GOA’s server crashed, and many who were opposed this framework for a national gun registry were unable to cast their votes.
Gun owners do not support universal background checks and do not support an assault weapons ban. In fact, gun owners do not support any further restrictions on guns. Any poll that tells you otherwise is a lie. I just don’t know how else to say it. The numbers, questions, data, statistics, sample population, sample location or something else, or all of the above, are fabricated. I’m a gun owner and I run among a circle of gun owners, and I know. Don’t trust the polls. In fact, don’t trust Obama’s anti-gun campaign which is proven to be a fraud. Senator Mpuphy is lying to his colleagues, and he knows it, even if his colleagues don’t know.
But Senator Murphy recently got an earfull of anecdotal evidence at a townhall meeting.
When U.S. Senator Chris Murphy appeared at a “town hall meeting” in Manchester on Sunday, things became so heated that police had to be called to the scene, although no arrests were made and the senator still stayed late to answer questions and speak with constituents …
… at several points during the event, which was held at MCC on Main, Murphy was interrupted by members of the audience who kept trying to steer the dialogue back to the Second Amendment and the senator’s views on gun control. Things became so unruly during the event, that Manchester Mayor Leo V. Diana had to intercede on Murphy’s behalf and ask the crowd to remain quiet and orderly as Murphy was trying to discuss other issues and answer constituents questions.
Several videos posted to YouTube (and attached to this article) show Murphy continually being interrupted by members of the audience, and the event eventually deteriorating into a shouting match in the crowd.
“They were totally disrupting the meeting,” said Diana, a Democrat. “At one point, it just got into this shouting match.”
A shouting match. Try to take the guns away. It’ll be more than a shouting match, and your lying polls won’t be any consolation.

Back in ye olden days, it wouldn’t have been a shouting match. Rather, it would have been a tar and feather party, with the senator having been run out of town on a rail!
I believe obama’s fatal error is the 2nd amendment.
Well I hope no one was holding their breath waiting for truth from a politician.
WHAT EVER WE CONTINUE TO TOLERATE IN AMERICA,WE WILL GET MORE OF!
Mr Gibson is another war monger, his staff hung up on me as I was telling him I would not abide by any unconstitutional a.ti gun laws. Guns for cops and the military but not the people. The piece of s*** is another placed politican, presen for his willingness to give up OUR rights. I met him when he was first running for office and he wouldn’t give me a straight answer on anything. I asked why he was even bothering to run because nobama was stealing ,usurping all of congress’s powers. Same problem, not listening to the will of the people.
Why are people not grasping the fact that OBAMA failed the “background check” Obama is a confessed illegal drug braggart. Therefore he lied on the purchase form and is committing a FELONY by possessing that shotgun he claims to use “all the time”.
