    Here was my response:

    The poll was commissioned by the out-of-state, anti-Second Amendment organization, The Campaign to Keep Guns off Campus, a project of GunFreeKids.org.

    It is time for the fear mongering to cease.

    Does this mean you want American Rifleman to go back to being interesting?

    Polls can be deceiving in how, when and where they are administered. Set up a similar poll and concentrate your research on Western MI south of Grand Rapids and you will see very different results.

    Why don't they just have crime free zones?

    The only way to accurately do a poll of voters and their preferences is to do it when they vote...otherwise it's just a sampling and could be inaccurate in either direction depending on no more than which people completed the survey.

    Unfortunately, we have a number of state legislators who profess to be Second Amendment supporters who are just begging for reasons NOT to establish OC/CC parity. House Speaker Bolger is chief among them. Polls such as this one give them the ammo for which they are looking.

    As a side note, I actually received a call from the polling company at the time they were conducting this poll. I have participated to several of them, but all of them in recent months were about political candidates, and I assumed that this one would be as well - so I didn't even answer the phone. Note to self: in the future, answer the call, ask what the poll is in reference to, and THEN hang up! :banghead:
