JSOnline: "It's the End of the World!!!!", Guns Edition

Yah,  to the JSOnline people (how many are still there??) it's the end of the world as we know it.

A county in rural northeastern Wisconsin has declared itself a Second Amendment sanctuary, a move that could spread to other counties.   [Play opening theme to "Jaws" here]

The day after Veterans Day, the Florence County Board unanimously adopted an ordinance designed to send a "keep your hands off our guns" message to politicians....[insert picture of smelly and toothless Wal-Mart customer here]
Naturally, the article mentions the MU Law poll, stating that '80% of Wisconsinites favor red-flag and 'universal' background checks.'

Well, maybe.  When you read the actual poll, you find that the poll did NOT ask those questions of more than half the respondents.  (They're called "missing.")  Further, the poll's questions on the topics are less-than-forthright; the 'red-flag' question doesn't mention that 'the judge' hears only ONE side of a story, and the 'background check' question conflates 'private sales' and 'gun-show sales'--implying that 'gun-show sales' have zero background checks--a blatant falsehood.

Meantime, let's look at available housing in Florence County!!!
