Gun Control Websites vs. Gun Rights Websites

by Angel Shamaya

December 6, 2002

While the anti-gun forces would have you believe they are monumentally significant, a look at the internet traffic to the major websites on each side of the gun cause tells a different story.

There is a unique add-on feature for web browsers that allows you to see this fact for yourself, in real numbers.

The Alexa Toolbar rates websites on the internet based on the traffic they receive. Downloading and installing the toolbar takes about a minute on a 56k modem. Once installed, every website you visit will give you its rank, by number, as compared against every other website on the internet. It also provides quick links to the other websites visited by people who frequent whatever website you're on at the time.

Installing this fascinating, unobtrusive toolbar -- it interfaces with 5.0 browsers and above -- and going to the major gun rights and gun control websites quickly shows you which side garners more web traffic.

You can see for yourself by installing the free Alexa Toolbar by clicking over to their website and downloading it here: http://download.alexa.com/alexa65/startpage.html?p=Dest_W_t_40_B2. The toolbar plug-in is also a really quick way to know how much traffic a news site is getting.  NOTE: If you do not wish to install the Alexa Toolbar but would like to take a look at rankings of any website you choose, their website enables you to do that quite easily. Use the search form on their home page at Alexa.com.

Here are some examples of the ratings various gun rights and gun control websites have as of December 6, 2002. As you read the rankings, understand that the lower the number, the more traffic the site gets. For example, yahoo.com is ranked as 1, because they get the most traffic of any website online. The gun prohibitionists' websites are in bold, below, so you can quickly see where they stand.

Maybe we should rename the MMM Klan the Three and a Half Million Ranked Losers.

By the way, kudos are deserved for the good people running TheFiringLine.com and Packing.org -- they are ranked 41,531 and 46,221, respectively. We recommend each of their sites heartily and hope you'll bookmark each site and use them.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
