I recently found out our Student Government here at Texas Tech University hosted a poll for students to vote for or against concealed carry on campus. I also recently found out the results, so I figured I would post them to see what some of the people on THR thought of it. Feel free to discuss.

(Also I do know that the "total responses" is incredibly small in comparison with the number of students enrolled here, but I don't believe Student Government Association did a good job getting the message out about the poll.)
