    The anti-gun nuts lost the last two polls so they keep changing the wording and creating new ones.

    Voted, still behind 42 - 58. I expect this to change once folks get home from work and see it.
    While many claim to support the right to keep and bear arms, precious few support the practice.

    It's about three days old and has been evenly divided since it went on-line. How many marks in either direction will it take to sway now more than 10,000 marks?

    Feels good to be a Virginian, doesn't it? Carrying openly is just not a problem in the places I go doing what I do on a normal basis.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    And yes, there were some misconceptions in the video. Interestingly, though Florida is in the deep South, not one of the people in the video had a Southern accent. Might tell you something about who and what moves into that state.

    The polls are currently:

    60-40 against
    80-20 for
    91-9 for

    This is more of a study in poll science than anything even remotely related to firearms.

    Is that a news site or a political protest site?

    If they worded it to say "Law abiding citizens", I think it would be a hands down win for us.

    I voted.

    Check this out now. See today's tally.
    If you haven’t voted on this poll, please do so and let your “gun loving” friends know to vote also.

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/opinion/todaysbuzz/tuesday/sfl-open-carry-buzz-10262010,0,5659123.story

    Here is the poll. Not too biased, is it?

    What do you think?

    Should Floridians be allowed to carry weapons openly?

    No way. We have already given the gun lovers too much freedom with their guns in Florida. Now to just let them carry their guns openly and wave them at everybody? Are you nuts? (3446 responses)
    56%

    Absolutely yes. The vast majority of states allow people to carry guns openly. It is a right that all gun owners should have, despite the whining of the gun-hating liberals. (2676 responses)
    44%

    6122 total responses so far.
    (Results not scientific)

    Go vote in favor of Open Carry and help Florida’s 2nd Amendment citizens.

    DONE!!!
    1 problem with polls like this. Those that typically vote against & have opposing views from us are Liberals. You know, the stay at home milking the welfare system & blogging their crap all day long on Facebook polls etc. If you want to get your blood preasure up. Just go to the HLN fan page on Facebook when they have discussions on these issues. GGGRRRRR

    The simplest one is now 82% yes, the next is now 70+% yes and the last one, the one with the most loaded language is now 57% yes to open carry.

    I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

    I went in through the links in post #9 in this thread. The link by the OP only took me to a story, no poll.
