    If we don't vote for the right folks, you may not have to worry about carrying anywhere by the next election.

    Noted, I early voted today, left the firearm locked in the car... Line was almost 45 minutes long... I was surprised at the turnout.

    Just a side note : it's legal in Kansas .... sorry for ya that it's not in Florida. Don't know why they would really automatically restrict a polling place at all.

    Thanks for the reminder. When I lived in Virginia, not only did I open carry when I voted, but I stuck my "I Voted" sticker on the grip of my firearm. Won't be doing any of that here.

    If you vote for either major party you have an equal chance of losing it.

    not necessarily true. Only one of the candidates signed an assault weapons ban while the other gave us the right to carry in national parks which is the farthest expansion of gun rights at the federal level in years.

    I know that the OP is correct that carry in a polling place is illegal.
    I'm the supervisor of a precinct of about 2500 active voters.
    Most years, we have light turnout.
    This year, though, we expect some major lines between the intense interest in the election and the multi-page ballots.
    The election staff will probably be very busy from 5:45am through about 8:30pm.

    Since Florida is concealed carry only, and we're expecting very heavy turnout, I would not be surprised to discover later that 20-30 people had carried at my precinct.
    If it's concealed and no one notices, did it really happen?

    Yep Georgia has the same Jim Crow law on the books...passed to keep black men from being able to vote when mobs of armed people would stop them...

    That's true, but the one who expanded the right to carry also wants to reintroduce a national AWB.

    I'm glad you know Romney isn't really pro gun, people are acting as if Obama is the anti gun guy. Even the NRA backs Romney, it doesn't make much sense.
