    Just voted, thanks for the post. If more congressmen carried maybe they would leave the good guys alone.

    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    Neither poll will ever be published for public consumption. US News if too Left-biased to publish them unless they doctor the results.

    Thanks for posting the polls.

    I voted NO to banning high-volume ammo clips.

    I also voted NO to "should more congressman" carry guns for self-defense because the decision to carry a gun is a personal one that does not need to be "pushed"...

    Results as of this posting:

    High Capacity "Clip" ban - 11.26% = Yes / 88.74% = No

    While my personal opinion is that the 15 round magazine for my M&P40, along with a spare magazine (or two), is adequate for my needs I would in no way like to see any type of magazine banned. If banning 30 round "clips" is a good thing then why not 15 or 10 or 5 or... let's make all guns single shot... and then what's the next stop down this slippery slope.

    Congressmen carry - 84.7% = Yes / 15.3% = No

    I agree with sentioch that the decision to carry a gun is a very personal one and maybe shouldn't be "pushed" but a little nudge here and there certainly wouldn't hurt.
