Only 46% say YES; with 1,502,000 or 3,280,000 respondents. 1,745,000 say No, it's too dangerous. 1% (33,000) say Only for self defense.

Good luck finding the who/what/why for this.

That poll has been up and taken down two times now. I've voted everytime.

It always shows the same numbers no matter how one votes and has for couple of months.

Because of the ad block I use, they wouldn't let me in. Oh well. They wouldn't have like my vote any way. :devilish:

I just tried the link myself and got in (and voted), and am using Adblock Plus. But I did as they asked and disabled Adblock on their site even though there was an option to "continue anyway."
Here are the results so far -- NO is winning:

Question: "Do you think people should be allowed to carry guns in public?"
3280k votes

>> Answer 1 of 3: "Yes, the Second Amendment guarantees it."

46%

>> Answer 2 of 3: "No, it's too dangerous."
1745K votes
53%

>> Answer 3 of 3: "Only for Self Defense."

Your "Yes" & "No" percentages are reversed: "Yes" should be 46%, "No" should be 53%
