Gun Control Websites vs. Gun
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.
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
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.

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.
