    Lots of links in this article that making for interesting reading. Here's a quote from the article:

    “Mayor Bloomberg should be more interested in the conduct of MAIG members than trying to pry into the personal lives of gun owners or soda drinkers,” said Second Amendment Foundation executive vice president Alan Gottlieb in a statement. “If anybody needs a background check, it would be a MAIG member.”

    Lots of interesting info in this article about problems with Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns (and your legal ones too). Lots of interesting links. Here's a quote from the article.

    “Mayor Bloomberg should be more interested in the conduct of MAIG members than trying to pry into the personal lives of gun owners or soda drinkers,” said Second Amendment Foundation executive vice president Alan Gottlieb in a statement. “If anybody needs a background check, it would be a MAIG member.”

    HSLDS, why are you shortening working URLs?

    Works fine for me.

    Original URL: http://www.examiner.com/article/key-question-overlooked-debate-over-bloomberg-average-joe-gun-owner-ad

    Shortened URL: http://www.examiner.com/article/key-question-overlooked-debate-over-bloomberg-average-joe-gun-owner-ad

    The targeted URLs and their landing pages are identical.

    What URL are you landing on when my link is clicked?

    If I highlight the shortened one you just put up it goes to the same one HSLDS put up

    The earlier one you put up just goes to a blank screen

    Yes, they are the same. Both links have the same exact targeted URL in them. They should land on exactly the same page. I don't know if this may be a browser issue for some folks, or if the target website has an issue. I might have to add a shortened URL in addition to making the intact addy live. None of this would be needed if the URL box was about 50% longer.
