I belong to a internet group consisting of both singles and couples in Iowa and Minnesota (both slight left leaning states). This group has absolutly nothing to do with guns in any way. I ran a poll which asked this question and got the following response.
How do you feel about (CCW) concealed carry weapons?
I have my permit and am usually armed 28.4% (29)
Iím thinking of getting my CCW permit 26.5% (27)
I think itís a good thing, just not for me 25.5% (26)
Iím afraid of guns 5.9% (6)
I donít even want to associate with people that feel they need to carry a gun 13.7% (14 )

I never expected this result especialy in these two states. Just very interesting and to me it is a success story
