Poll: Why are U.S. Jews generally anti-gun?

This week’s poll asks why American Jews are generally anti-gun.

We didn’t have a poll last week, but our previous poll (on whether you personally carry a gun) produced encouraging results (click to embiggen):

Between the big YES to carrying everywhere and the jaunty “none of your business” we’re clearly an alert and ready group. 🙂

Oh, and sorry about the two “other” options. Still getting used to how PollDaddy does things.

This week’s poll: How often do you carry a firearm?

This week’s poll asks how often you carry a firearm.

Since it went up a little late this week, we’ll keep it open until Monday at 6:00 p.m. CDT.

(And yes, “none of your business” is one of the options.)

When people choose “Other” they have the option to fill in a blank with their reasons. Unfortunately, PollDaddy doesn’t display those, but we had some interesting ones. Most of the “other” votes were variations on “all of the above” or “several of the above.” But here were the more original ones:

“Change the mindset. We can ALL defend & should.”

“Arm everyone. Darwinian solution.”

“Require small arms training and arming all teachers.”

“Constitutional carry everywhere.”

Thanks to all who voted!

Poll: Most effective way to stop mass public shootings

This week’s TZP poll asks “What’s the most effective way to stop mass public shootings?”

I should add that in coming up with that question I have no expectation (unlike our starry-eyed anti-gunner “friends”) that we can prevent all violent, crazy jerks from being violent, crazy jerks. Feel free to interpret “stop” to mean either “discourage creeps from even trying it” or “end it — NOW.”

You can only choose one option in this poll, but I know your thoughts are likely to be much more nuanced. So as always feel free to comment away!

Poll closing soon — results so far

This week’s poll will close shortly. Here are the results so far (click to embiggenate):

We’ve had 150 votes (usually with multiple votes per person). I’m not surprised that the largest number chose participating in online pro-gun discussions as one of their gun-rights activities. But in second place is hands-on firearm instruction. Kudos to you — especially those of you who regularly train shooters via Appleseed, hunter education classes, 4H, NRA-certified training, or any other regular means.

And hooray for the resisters of bad laws everywhere!

This week’s TZP poll: You and gun rights

This week’s TZP poll asks, “What types of gun-rights activities are you personally involved with?”

Choose as many as apply and feel free to add your comments!

This poll will close at 6:00 p.m. CDT this Friday.

Since the only problem people reported with last week’s sample poll (thank you, beta testers) was trouble finding it while on mobile devices, I’ll put all new polls in a regular post. They can also be found in the left-hand sidebar for those who aren’t on mobile.

Remember that polls will open in a new tab or window.
