    To get those predetermined results preselecting your polled population is a requirement. If you polled the population at large I think the results would be better ie more oriented towards carry. I was trained to preselect my population along with ways of wording the question etc. to skew results in the direction you seek. We were also taught though I already realized it this is unethical.

    Are you kidding me? The same people who votes a restaurant that bans will be the same ones crying concerning the crime rate in their communities is to high.

    Would you prefer to go to an eatery that allows guns, or one that bans them?

    24 % A restaurant that allows guns. 67,494 votes
    49 % A restaurant that bans guns. 136,216 votes
    26 % Either is fine with me. 73,313 votes
    1 % I'm not sure. 3,827 votes

    I would expect similar results, plus or minus, on any similarly-worded survey presented to the general public.

    49% of readers prefer to eat in a restaurant where they know the only person armed is the guy robbing the place.

    I think that Diner in Pulp Fiction had a no gun policy and it seemed to work there.....

    Technically that place was getting robbed and a patron with a gun stopped the robbery. We be praising ol' Jules on this website if it made The Blaze. He's a bad mamma jamma.
