Sad there is no consideration of repeal of some of the more stupid rules.

They took the ‘There are enough rules...’ away. It won’t register the vote and has no votes.

They purposely forgot
Keeping mentally disturbed children out of school system and away from firearms
school security programs initiated by inexperienced administrators in schools
no real security systems and measures that will halt or lessen the casualties
As always the focus is limited, no debate, no more than one solution and always to the benifit of an agenda.
Why do government buildings have better security equipment and programs than in the schools for your children?
Acording to the law a working fire alarm system must be in place before the school can be occupied, why no security system in place as well?
The feds forced the states to deal with thier mentally ill students by placing them in normal environments like the class room where your child is placed, why no outrage for change? Parents wake up!

Regardless of this poll's outcome, it's a skewed poll. Anytime a poll has more choices for one point of view than the other, the person who put the poll together wanted a specific outcome. In this case it's a poll that favors the pro-gun point of view. Since this poll didn't offer PTA provided, trained parent/protector volunteers at every school, I didn't vote.

It says that I’ve already voted. Totally rigged, and it somehow knows that we’re from FR in spite of the redirector.

Anyone who votes to ban all guns is a freaking idiot, a queen of unintended (ignorant) consequences.

It was still there, but what they did was reformat the page so it looks like the 60+% who said there were enough rules was across from the ban response. If you don’t realize there are 4 responses and that they don’t line up with the options, it looks like the option has been removed (or just not voted for) and people are overwhelmingly in favor of a ban. Wrong, but it is the media and impressions are more important than facts...

We can’t link directly to this poll in a seperate ping because the newspaper does not like it.

...but we can go there and fix this one. Do you have a way to ping it without a direct link?

http://www.mydesert.com/section/opinion

Yes 20.9%
No 79.1%

Total votes: 43
