This is a discussion on Poll on how safe the public feels about guns within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I voted....
I voted and have to say I'm amazed by the results given that this is hosted by PMSNBC.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Reading the comments following the poll I'm lead to believe that guns will crawl out of the safe, load themselves march to the streets and start randomly firing all on their own. When are these comments going to become founded in reality?
I see we are well above 70% on very safe!

I voted. I thought this response by an anti was pretty funny:
"Having such ready access to a firearm increases the chances it might be used."
I hit it. Some of the responses are ridiculous.

Voted, 80% said they feel safe.
For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the son of man be. Mathew 24:27
I couldn't believe some of the comments that were left by the people that were scared.
We still have a steep hill to climb.
A lot of the comments are ridiculous, but there are a few good ones mixed in.
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
I voted. silly silly poll.
People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like.

- Winston Churchill
Voted: 78.4% for the good guys.
It just amazes me that so many believe what the media chooses to tell them about the "inherant evils of guns." It takes SOMEONE to decide good or bad, not an inanimate object!
wow i can't believe the difference. i expected it to be about equal. i guess the american public is finally learning about the importance of protecting oneself and their loved ones. and even every day people on the street.
its now at 78.7%
voted, Were still ahead by far.
Just wondering how they will spin this poll, it's not going to way they would like to see it.
