It is very interesting that it is the third option that is currently getting more than half the votes: 610 votes, 50.88 percent.
The first option, essentially for ending private sales and setting up the framework for a statewide gun registry has 288 votes, or 24.02 percent.
The second option, which is pretty much the status quo, has 301 votes or 25.1 percent.

Here is a link to the poll.
