    HIT THIS POLL: Sun-Sentinel - Does the open-carry bill show that FL is too gun crazy?

    If everyone packs heat, then everyone is protected thanks to a kind of mutual assured destruction doctrine.

    The Founding Fathers, writing in an age when single-shot muskets were all the rage, may not have known to what lengths their precious Second Amendment was destined to be stretched.
    The Second Amendment was not the initial penning of the protection of the right to carry. When first written down, it protected the right and established the duty to carry swords. Can you imagine the following being written in the 1780s, as the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were being considered?

    The authors of the original right to keep and bear arms in England, writing in an age when swords were all the rage, may not have known to what lengths their precious right to be armed was destined to be stretched now that we live in the age of firearms.
    The right has historically referred to the typical arm that folks routinely carry for personal use (such as, but not limited to, self-defense), but could use as a primary personal weapon when serving as a militiaman. Today, that includes personal firearms, such as rifles, shotguns, and handguns.

    Looks like 75% anti-gun, 25% pro. Doesn't appear to be one of those polls that will accept multple votes.

    anti-hacker strikes again. Same issue as the last sun-slantinel poll. Over 2000 anti-gun votes in 30 sec.

    just delete your cookies and it does allow multiple votes. It's hacked.

    What's the point of participating if the site is vulnerable?
    It takes a village to raise an idiot.

    Yeah. I wonder about posts that essentially say, "Let's cheat. Hey! THEY cheated!"

    Even when the "anti's" try to rig the votes, in the end, Truth will out...

    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    42% yes
    58% no

    Improving, but still (IMHO) not showing how the majority of people really feel about the issue.

    38/62. Looking better all the time.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
