    Not losing the way I see it. They want you to see that by offering poorly worded choices designed to split the 'yes' vote but not the no vote in order for people to think that the yes is not as popular as it is.

    The poll is designed to give opponents a single choice while others have to vote one or the other ways. I voted in favor of the legislation.

    A proposed change to Kansas’ concealed carry permit law would allow licensed individuals to carry guns into government buildings. To keep handguns out of buildings, the government would have to install metal detectors and trained, armed guards at all entry points. Do you support the proposed change?

    Exactly. I hate polls that do that. Obviously if you think its your right to carry a handgun, then you think its your right to defend yourself. Is it really necessary to split those two in the poll?

    as i posted it, 26 + 22 = 48 < 51. therefore, at the time of my posting, we were losing.

    however, we've rallied and are now winning! good job everyone!
