    Local Newspaper opinion poll

    Hi Everybody!

    My local rag is holding an on-line opinion poll. If you'd like to help, I'd greatly appreciate it! Nobody takes it seriously and it only gets several hundred votes a week. I thought it'd be awesome if the members here would 'set it straight'.

    I have one within reach at all times

    I voted number 1, but it's still lagging behind the others, except for that nonsensical "England has it right" category.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I voted #1 as well. But, that's just because there was no option for "I am wearing one now".

    Of course, I clicked #1.

    I love how their graphic makes it look like 9% for #4 is just behind all the others around 30%.

    Also, it is of note that #1 and #2 total over 50%. Not enough over for my taste, though - only 52.6% aat the moment.

    I voted, a couple of times. It's 52.8% have a gun available. Encouraging.

    The problem I had is the response, "I have one within reach at all times." What if you have more than one within reach???

    But I chose that one anyway because I considered the source.

    So far it is 54.1% pro-gun, 45.9% anti-gun.

    Those who voted that England has it right should move there. I much prefer being a citizen with inalienable rights rather than a subject to the Crown.
