Nope, No Agenda Here

For 50 bonus points, what's wrong with this MSNBC poll asking readers how they feel about pending legislation that would allow CCW-license holders to carry concealed weapons in National Parks if they're already permitted to carry a concealed weapon in the state where the park is situated?

By a 2-to-1 margin, the respondents favor allowing some level of CCW in National Parks. Note the first choice on the list reflects the position held by the bill's sponsors, where state CCW laws would govern.

But, they conveniently split the pro-CCW options into three separate answers, to create the illusion that "It should not be allowed" is the more popular choice. Why, it's almost as if they created that survey with the end goal of having that answer to come out on top.

I know what you're saying.

"Anti-gun rights bias at MSNBC??? Say it isn't so!"
