    Yes (42%, 33 Votes)
    Undecided (3%, 2 Votes)

    Total Voters: 78

    That's a crazy question. They're "volunteers". As private citizens, if they have their permit they are legally allowed to carry. If paid security, it would be a policy thing and even then not illegal just a company policy.

    I hate the way they phrase those questions. "In the light of the TM shooting..."

    It shouldn't even be a yes or no question, there are always variables to consider and details for each persons circumstances.

    Not surprising. As a minority group will be constantly battling to preserve our 2nd amendment rights.

    Maybe they should run the next one as: "In light of the Trayvon Martin shooting, should hoodies be allowed to be wornin gated communities?"

    I voted that they should be allowed.

    Especially if they have a valid carry permit-excluding those states who do not issue or recognize that right/privelidge.... ie Illinois. It is currently illegal to carry a concealed firearm in Illinois, NYC and some other places.

    As with any event such as this one, the outcry against anyone who wants to own and carry a firearm gets massive attention. Their "solution" is always the banning of firearms, the ownership thereof and the carry permit as well.

    They also conveniently left out the criminals who will use a gun no matter how many laws are in place. They almost always suffer from amnesia when it comes to that.

    If the individual is licensed to carry a firearm I personally see no problem. Theoretically, in their classes and training, they have learned to make life and death decisions rapidly and understand the ramifications of each. I do however see a problem when the carrier does not recognize the monumental responcibility of carrying a firearm.
