    Of the 4 options, NO has the least number of votes...But the public wants to outlaw guns, right?

    Poll still open - Go vote no:

    Should Connecticut outlaw the open display of guns at public placessuch as shopping malls and movie theaters?

    Yes. Carrying guns openly is both intimidating and a provocation. Guns have no place in movie theaters and other public spaces anyway. (155 responses)
    9%

    No. Citizens who are obviously (and legally) armed could prevent violence like the shootings at the Aurora, Colo., screening of "Dark Knight." They would make would-be troublemakers think twice. (534 responses)
    32%

    Yes. Even though I support the right to own guns, there's no point in showing them off. That just causes the public to panic. (306 responses)
    18%

    No. Gun ownership is a constitutional right, and with that comes a right to carry a gun openly in public. (680 responses)
    41%

    Thanks all who hit it- I was glad to see that the numbers have consistently been strongly against banning OC.

    Even though I'm not a fan of OC for me personally, I would hate to see the state move backwards in their firearm tolerance, and take the option away. Not to mention, we don't need to be charged if a shirt-tail flaps open or whatever.

    You are correct. Brief or accidental display of a weapon is not illegal if open carry is legal.

    Protect ALL your rights.
