    I was browsing through the Comcast.net forums today, and they've got a poll at the top of the "News & Current Events" forum.

    "Do you think teachers should be allowed to carry concealed firearms? "

    I voted, and was dismayed to discover that 59% voted NO (only 41% Yes). after 647 votes.

    I can only link to the forum page, and hope y'all see the poll as well and turn it around.

    It's right above the threads listing. Tell me if you see it.

    ...Thanks...

    Most of the 622 votes were "No." That's pretty unusual.

    Well it is on the comcast forums.

    I don't watch TV, but I can only imagine that those who do have a very skewed perspective on reality.

    No, they should be allowed to OPEN carry :P. I voted, but it's still heavy on the no side. I'd really love to hear their reasons for saying no. I'm sure the answers would be something like "Guns don't belong in schools"and "I don't want my kid exposed to guns"....which really doesn't explain anything. :?

    I voted a number of times and each time the vote counter incremented. This after I watched for a while to see the rate.

    They need a different poll question:

    "Should teachers who don't want to CC be allowed to teach our children?"
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
