    I'd vote, if I knew what I was voting for. Here in PA, there are no "open carry handgun laws". That's why it's legal. No law that makes it illegal. So, no, I don't support open carry laws.

    Does a yes vote mean I favor laws allowing or laws disallowing OC? What am I missing here?

    Yes. Very poorly worded. Difficult to say what 'yes' means.

    Given the source is WSJ, it is likely poorly worded for a reason.

    Exactly.

    In the brainless mentality of such polls, I'm assuming they mean do I agree that open carry of firearms should be legal. But that's not what is being asked. They're asking if I agree there should be OC laws. No, I don't.

    What SHOULD be, IMO: A state constitution should have an element supporting the right of all citizens to be armed; no laws should exist about firearms in the hands of citizens, other than when firearms are used as a weapon to assault innocents.

    So. No vote, here.

    58.5 for, 41.5 against. If you read the article accompanying the poll, they mean laws making it legal to open carry.
