    Ok, Nevermind... Poll has been closed. Couldn't have been open for too long, there was only a lil over 200 votes.

    Right, The Milwaukee Journal poll last week was open for only 1 day I believe, and when I last checked the votes, it was 82% yes/18% no with over 8,300 people voting. Janesville isn't as big obviously, but the Janesville Gazette is a very popular paper and should have brought a heck of a lot more then 200 votes in a 24 hour period!!! I bet it didnt last but maybe a couple hours...

    They can't even spell "opinion" correctly. Any newspaper which doesn't edit their own content is probably not worth taking the time to read.

    Voted.....

    It's sad to see that level of ignorance is in a position of authority.

    It's still open.

    Yes - I should be able to carry a concealed gun without a permit or training (61%)
    I'm OK with concealed carry, but I think it should only be allowed with a permit and training (23%)
    I'm opposed to concealed carry - period (15%)

    I assume the trained officers are some of those whom weapons are dirty because they do not know how to take them apart and clean them. These trained officers?
    Seems I read something about this here not so long ago. I knew how to clean my guns by the time I was 10 years old.

    "We didn't record your vote because this poll is closed" is why your numbers are the same after voting. They closed it again...surprise surprise surprise.

    It's interesting how the voter poll was closed down after such a short amount of time, on an issue that they don't like, when votes started going in our favor...Failed attempt at censorship??
