I voted Yes,
For the No vote, There is no Government control of baseball bats, knives forks spoons or the flush handle on the toilet,
I hope that I did not give away any ideas, but No voters may be willing to pay for these uncontrolled items too. And when the No voters pay check becomes insufficient, to support their own family, attack the Employer.
Just my thoughts, I have been, Conditioned.
I voted no, begrudgingly, because of the federal 1000 foot school zone infringement.
Voted 'Yes' because the Pistol Registration Requirement can be separated from the License To Purchase.
Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

I can remember when I was In the army at fort knox 87-91 it you passed a check & test & had the cash you walked out with it then & there. Only records were kept at the gun store. I bought a few then was forced to register when I returned home to MI.
