    Fire Mission - Should GMU students and teachers be allowed to carry guns on campus?

    Fire Mission - Should GMU students and teachers be allowed to carry guns on campus?

    Poll is at bottom of page,,

    http://fairfaxcity.patch.com/articles/poll-recap

    Protestors faced off at George Mason University last week over on-campus
    gun rules. The university has a ban on weapons for all students and faculty.
    However, those who aren't students or faculty may carry guns on campus,
    just not inside any buildings or at events, if they have the proper permit.

    What do you think?

    Should GMU students and teachers be allowed to carry guns on campus?

    5 YES, 2 NO. Left a comment asking why they think "blood in the streets" will happen there if it has never happened elsewhere.

    I have a feeling they are not going to like the results of the poll. Hooray!
