    Wow. 43% voted no. Just because I wouldn't personally open carry doesn't mean I can decide if it is someone else's right to open carry.

    Wow. Somebody must hit it hard. In 45 minutes it went from 43% NO to 58% NO.

    Or did you, maybe, look at the wrong line, Hogger?

    I bet I was looking at the wrong line. Sorry for the confusion. I voted in favor of open carry though I am sure of that.

    Edit: I was just on it and voted for it again and it said 51% yes, 49% no.

    59% - no
    41% - yes just now.

    The wording of the poll is rather interesting.

    I liked the way they phrased it. The "for" line is definitely pro-gun and pro-carry, while the "against" line is definitely anti-gun. There should not be any confusion there.

    Unlike the ones that say things like, "The US Constitution gives me the right to own a gun". No it doesn't. The 2nd does not "give" me the right. It acknowledges and recognizes my right. There's a difference.

    some anti-gun loser is probably relentlessly hitting 'no.'

    Back in the 80's certain parts of Miami had open carry due to the influx of Cubans from the boat lift. It really was the wild west for a time and alot of business was lost because of the fear of guns.

    Here is what the Poll reflects as of now....... looking better today.


    What do you think? Should Floridians be allowed to carry weapons openly?

    45% for No way (7551 responses).

    55% for Absolutely yes (9196 responses).

    16747 total responses
