    What do you think?
    Survey
    Do you support open-carry gun laws in restaurants and retail stores?


    Yes, such legislation makes me feel safer.

    No, armed people in public make me uncomfortable

    Not sure--share your opinion in the comments section.

    As usual with these left leaning polls the choices are asinine and in this case a bit confusing. Why not just a clean YES, NO, NOT SURE?

    (Yes, such legislation makes me feel safer) I think that means you support open carry gun laws but,

    (No, armed people in public make me uncomfortable) means you don't support open carry gun laws? What are these people smoking when they write this garbage?

    Yeah, the wording of the answers was very confusing, had to read them several times. Pretty sure that was done intentionally. And by "pretty sure," I mean I'm 100% confident they worded it like they did to confuse people.

    So they have a no concealable weapons sign on the door, I guess they are saying AR's,m shotguns and any old long gun is alright. I wonder if a 7.5 inch barrel 357 is considered to be concealable?

    83% now.

    Guess they need to print a follow-up article about how they don't do research before they slap tripe on the interwebs.

    I think you answered your own question. The left loves to muddy the water. A confused populace can't think for themselves. If they can't think for themselves then they look to the government to take care of them. In this case they worded this in such a way to influence the outcome.

    Anyway, I just "voted". Here's the results (so far):

    (Well until MSNBC takes it down.

    In this case, I think it's easy for the uninitiated to misinterpret the question to mean "Do you support laws restricting open carry in restaurants and retail stores?" Most folks are used to thinking of laws as things that restrict their rights rather than protecting them.

    Sign or no sign, the only question in my mind entering any business is whether or not they deserve my patronage (carrying a concealed weapon they'll never know I have).
