    What a dipstick:

    As to whether it's wise to do so, the Founding Fathers sagely kept their own counsel.
    No, if you study what was written, they were quite vocal.

    Voted, 56% yes, 44% no. It's still pretty early in the poll, only 671 total votes.

    Kind of an odd way of saying "An Armed Society is a Polite Society".

    What a shame this is a close one, no 56%, Yes 44%
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    Just voted. The vote is overwhelmingly "yes." But, remember this is probably the most liberal area in Florida. I wouldn't put much stock in a poll generated from this area.

    What do you think?

    Does the open-carry bill show that Florida is too gun crazy?

    * Yes, absolutely. Florida keeps putting more guns in circulation everywhere – parks, coffee houses, you name it. And now they want you to be able to openly carry a loaded weapon? That's nuts. (4058 responses)

    51%

    * No, definitely not. You are talking about law-abiding citizens doing something very legal. Don't have a knee-jerk reaction to the Arizona shootings, the second amendment is there to protect us all. (3911 responses)

    Finally, logic is taking a majority, for now.
