    I voted for "I believe having people armed will make Wisconsin a safer place." since I am out of state. Hope some more people vote from here the the anti position has 41% of the vote right now.

    Can't I pick 2?

    Hit it but it stinks that I can't pick the first two. I guess we get to add those two right? Or are they using them to dilute it and make the poll turn out a way they can spin it?

    You only look marginally like a cheeseburger, but I can see a resemblance . . .

    No denying I am cheezy in real life too.

    And my yard work was finished this morning. I hate the heat. I voted my hardline opinion!

    Cool Voted

    Went and voted for #2 but find it funny that the prison system lets the inmates vote for this poll. I figure the 35% that think it will cause problems are the bad guys; as it will cause them problems when they try and hurt someone.

    Just voted:
    Combining the 1st 2 options, there's 64% for, 4% don't care, & 32% ignoring reality as shown by other states w/ cc. Wonder how long before this poll disappears, like all the other pro-carry / pro-rights polls seem to have done?

    One more day I'm REALLY happy to live by this big puddle they call Lake Michigan.
    So far it's about 80 & not uncomfortably humid.
    I was expecting to be miserable today, under or in front of fans & drinking lots of tea, but it's fairly pleasant. (As of 2pm.)
