    Local Houston TV Station Voting on Conceal Carry

    http://www.khou.com/
    The above local Houston station has a vote up for "Should concealed handguns be allowed everywhere?" Go by and vote early and often, not sure I like the way they word the pro vote.

    I don't give my real name or info to websites like that.

    So Sarah Brady just voted "yes"

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    That was a sneeky poll. All they wanted was your personal info to sell.

    Three methods I use when spam signup... er, "registration" is required:

    1. www.bugmenot.com. Use one of their log ins. In this case, most had already voted.
    2. Look up the webmaster's info on whois. Sign up with their email, address and phone number. Check "yes" to all opt-ins.
    3. If the site requires you to respond to an email to active the account, I use www.sneakemail.com to create a disposable, anonymous email address that I can use to sign up then delete as desired.

    I watched the report when it came on TV, and I read the report on their website. They don't exactly match. In the written report, it says, "When the concealed handgun bill became law, suddenly anyone with a license could carry a gun." What the reporter said on TV was, " ....suddenly any Joe-blow with a license...."
    I guess I need to get my name changed. Just call me Joe-blow, because I have a license, and I'm going to carry. I'm also sending KHOU an email about their reporters condescending ad-lib.
