Right-wing radio station: ‘Gun owners have to register, why not Muslims?
A conservative talk radio station in San Diego has a pressing question to ask its listeners: Should "practicing Muslims" be "registered" on a national database during a time of war? KFMB 760 AM, the San Diego home of such right-wing on-air personalities as Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage, reportedly asked the question on its Web site Wednesday, according to Ben Dimiero at MediaMatters. "During a time of war, should we register as many practicing Muslims as we can find in a national database?" the poll asked. Voters were given two options to choose from: "No, it's an invasion of privacy," and "Yes, gun owners have to, why not Muslims?" The poll had already been removed from the site as of Wednesday evening.

Grly~ Interesting that you point out the "generalizations" when some who post on this site have actually labeled all Muslims as terrorists based on their interpretation of the Quran. Do a little research and you'll see just those same "generalizations" applied to another group. It's interesting how some accepted similar generalizations as 1 justification for why the community center should not be built blocks from Gz. Why are you so bothered with the "generalizations" in this particular instance, yet remained quiet about the others? FTR, IMO broad sweeping generalizations are wrong, no matter the group in question. No, being a member of a faith based group should not be grounds for forced governmental registration.
