    Campus carry debate - majority favor CCW

    Campus carry debate heats as Gallup shows majority favor CCW

    "A spirited debate has erupted anew over allowing concealed carry on college campuses in several states, according to a story in The Hill earlier today, at the same time that a new Gallup poll shows a majority of Americans think more concealed firearms “would make the country safer.”

    "According to Gallup, 56 percent of Americans believe concealed carry makes the country safer. There’s an interesting, albeit not surprising, breakdown that shows 82 percent support for concealed carry among Republicans, 59 percent among Independents but only 31 percent among Democrats."

    "Hogler’s piece in The Hill today notes that 19 states ban guns on campus and 23 states allow schools to implement some sort of gun policy, while eight states allow campus concealed carry."

    Gallup is really milking this survey! "NRA viewed favorably by most Americans, poll"

    National Rifle Association viewed favorably by most Americans: poll

    It is refreshing to see a poll on the pro side of RKBA.

    So many of the polls push towards an established agenda/goal, just as spinning the results is a tool of the antis.

    Just a different analyst's different opinion.

    I've noticed similar trends with respect to just about everything else involved with following the law.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
