    Not surprising. Every news source is liberal, except Fox News, so that's mainly who goes on the site. It's biased to begin with just because of where it's posted.

    I cast my vote yes. It is hard to believe the results are not skewed against us. The media does crap like this to sway people who are easy to convince the majority is in their biased favor.

    Exactly. Even on a clearly biased site, the numbers are roughly 50-50.

    Yes, I do and I'm also quite a fan of the laws regarding not being able to come after one in civil court.

    Go "INCOGNITO" or "IN PRIVATE" in your browser and you can vote as many times as you want. You may have to close out the IN PRIVATE or INCOGNITO window and re-open a new one......but you can vote as much as you want.

    The problem is most people have never read the law and many who voted live in states that don't have the Castle Doctrine. I am also quite sure some less than law abiding people voted in the poll. Polls should be taken with a grain of salt......

    That's not the poll I get, only one on agreeing with the verdict. ???

    Just visited the page, now it's a poll on agreement with the GZ verdict.

    So far, agreement is leading about 2 to 1

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
