    Another poll to vote in - CC on college campus

    No, not the three year old USA Today poll.

    Right now, it's 68% Yes - ban CC on campus vs 32% against the ban.

    Let's all chime in, for what it's worth.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Holy voting, Batman. In a matter of less than an hour, we've taken the lead - 51 to 49%. And this poll has been ongoing for several days, at least, with the margin far in favor of the banning crowd.

    Be like a Chicago voter - vote early, vote often, keep voting even if you're dead. Let's see it get really lopsided in favor of CC.

    And voting in this poll accomplishes what exactly?

    Wouldn't you gain far more from your post if you were to say, provide the names of representatives that are "Pro" student carry and ask that voters contact these people with support?

    Like you said, for what it's worth. These polls are worth less than the cost of electrons that go into making them possible. No one uses these poll since there is no accountability to them. For all you know, the entire number of votes could be from one person with a lot of time on their hands and the knowledge to spoof a poll.

    Be active in a way that garners results.

    Here, a stupid and uninformed Chairman of the Board of Regents (over the colleges) made a statement..... that 18 & 19 yr olds like to have "fun" at college and mixing guns into it would be a bad mix.

    We've all jumped on him, asking if he is saying they condone 18 & 19 yr olds drinking illegally, since that is what he was implying. As well as, no one under 21 can purchase a handgun in this state, nor have a CCL either. So, how did any of this apply to anything, since the discussion was around CCL's being able to carry on campuses .... both of which requires the person to be 21 or over. He's made no more comments since then. We also asked how many 18 & 19 yr olds do we have in our Armed Services at this point, to which no one wants to address.

    SHOULD COLLEGES BAN FIREARMS?

    Results so far:
    Yes 37% 820 votes
    No 63% 1399 votes
    Total: 2219 votes

    It looks like we are winning.
    Now if we can just get rid of all the libtards and socialist, maybe keep two or three in a zoo somewhere as an "endangered species" but not allow them to procreate, we could maybe get this county's course back on track.

    Wow the leading yes arguments are so weak....

    Most of those yes arguments remind me a carlin skit

    "What's happened is, these baby boomers, these soft, fruity baby
    boomers, have raised an entire generation of soft, fruity kids who aren't
    even allowed hazardous toys, for Chrissakes! What ever happened to natural
    selection? Survival of the fittest? The kid who swallows too many marbles
    doesn't grow up to have kids of his own. Simple stuff. Nature knows best!"
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    64% (No) to 36% (Yes) - meaning most people are favoring colleges allowing CC.

    I found it amazing the number of posters (comments) were under the impression that either if the ban was not put in place, that all students would either be required to carry, or flat out would carry. No one on the "No" side pointed out that even if there was no ban, that in all likelihood, only 1% of the eligible students would be carrying (going with the current trend of only 1% of the US poup. has a permit).

    Anyone have any legitimate numbers/percentages of CCW students at colleges that do allow?
