    Packing Heat: Local Businesses Torn on Concealed Carry Law

    It sure seems like a lot of them aren't going to be worried about law abiding citizens being armed. A few are choosing not to post because of the liability issue.

    There is a poll about where weapons should be banned or allowed. So far it is 73% FOR carrying weapons!

    Poll is corrupted. At 49 I voted. The next display was 71 - possible. I voted again at 72 and 73 and got no errors.

    Those editor-pollsters need to learn that we econometricians must have reliable numbers from which to make good judgements.

    I voted and the total count increased by one, the screen refreshed to show the new numbers. I closed the browser and tried to vote again...no go. The window opens to show the results and would not allow me to vote again.

    Not sure what happened with you?!?!

    I think their little poll counter is having a problem.,,

    86/108 does not equal 26% Anyway, 86 votes for nowhere.

    If you add all the votes in all the categories you come up with 108. 108 is what they say is the totall number of votes, but if you add up the percentages, the total is only 31%?

    The count total is 110 right now. 88 NOWHERE/110 Total = 80%. The remainder are 20 votes/110 total = 20%. Add everything = 100%.

    I'm not sure what math you are using???

    The site page is correct mathematically.
