    I voted to favor. It's still 50% favor, 45% not, 5% unsure.

    On another note, I hate AOL - they're thieves. I used to work there, and if you have an account, I'd advise you to cancel it and get another ISP.

    Bias

    Considering the average youth and liberal bias of most on-line pols, I think it's miraculous that the pro position is ahead by any percentage.

    Neither youth nor technology necessarily equals an anti-gun bias...at least in my experience. :huh: I have plenty of both.

    13901 votes is actually 49.9% of the 27883 total. If no one voted "no", we would need about 320 more to make 51%. As the total number of votes grows, it becomes more difficult for either side to make a percentage change. The initial 5% surge in our favor was likely due to a large number of favorable votes in light of awareness of the poll.

    While these polls do little to influence policy directly, I think it is important to maintain an effective "presence" in things like this. Many people are simply influenced by what they think other people's opinions are.

    I'm curious though as to how many of these 13,901 (now more) people in favor of on-campus concealed carry are actually CWP holders and can use a gun competently, and how many are "mall ninjas". Too often it seems like people buy guns or generators after events like 9/11 or school shootings, without putting much thought into training, or how they would actually put such a thing into use.

From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that is good" (George Washington)
