    Exclamation Poll Time! If a business owner bans guns are you more / less likely to visit?

    I'm certainly less likely, but you can vote as you wish for the gun owner's friends at the Lynchburg News & Advance. (Seriousness and sarcasm here. Hope you can detect which fits where. )

    Un-publicized boycotts that don't instantly and drastically turn off cash flow are pointless. I don't think it matters what is posted as policy if it doesn't carry the weight of law.

    I voted and then took advantage of the comments section. I then posted it on Whatcom Countys OC page in order to spread the opportunity to participate. If I were a local shopkeeper, and I was "on the fence" about this issue, I would follow this to see how it would affect my business.

    In MY personal life, I do not monetarily support any business that is contradictory to me. Some smart business owners have approached me for my opinion and as to why I carry. No shopkeeper has ever asked me to leave and only one has ever asked me to "cover up"(I did not). Why give money to a person who does not like you and puts you in harms way?

    Results as of 11:30 EDT, 5/29:


    More likely 20.3%
    Less likely 59.6%
    It wouldn't make a difference 20.1%

    The poll results here and on the CNN poll must be driving the pollsters bat-****. Good.

    Why would I give money to a store that doesn't care about the safety of myself and loved ones?

    Not less likely...........won't!

    As of 20:11 central time on FRI 30MAY:
    20% more likely
    60% less likely
    20% no difference

    So there's still a clear majority who support civil rights.

    If this poll were asked about any other group (based on skin color, religion, country of origin) the results would probably be overwhelmingly against the business doing the banning.

    That says it for me, too. Pretty unlikely I can't find what I need elsewhere.
