Online Poll Guns in Schools

Arizona - -(Ammoland.com)- A poll in a Michigan newspaper is asking the following question: Should concealed pistol permit holders carry guns into schools?

The responses allowed are:

  • Yes
  • No
  • Don’t know
  • Don’t care

So far the results are overwhelmingly in favor of allowing permit holders to carry pistols in schools:

  • Yes   79.36%    (1488 votes)
  • No    19.95%   (374 votes)
  •   (6 votes)
  •   (7 votes)

This is typical of online polls involving Second Amendment supporters. It measures the ratio of those who are interested enough to answer an online poll. The results fit comfortably in the range expected, with Second Amendment supporters outnumbering those who push for more restrictions by 3-10 to 1. In this case it is a comfortable 4-1 ratio.

What is interesting in this poll is that it includes the potentialy emotional trigger of guns in schools.

Those who want more restrictions on guns have attempted to set up a taboo: no guns in schools.  In fact guns have been commonly associated with schools up until the Bush and Clinton gun bans in and around schools in the 1990′s.   Even with the emotional trigger in place, we still get a 4-1 ratio in favor of second amendment supporters.

Here is the link to the poll at the record-eagle.com.

Second Amendment supporters are typically better informed and more involved than those who wish for more restrictions on citizens access to firearms.
