This poll will close on May 14, 2019 at 2:39 PM.
  1. Anywhere as long as they’re not breaking the law

  2. Anywhere as long as it’s carried without drawing unnecessary attention

  3. If they only own a long gun and have barriers to acquiring handgun (e.g. finances, NICS false-pos)

  4. In rural areas

  5. In places where there aren’t many people around at the time

  6. In their vehicle or a vehicle they’re riding in

  7. In other places Castle Doctrine applies (church, place of business), assuming they have permission

  8. On private property

  9. Only if it’s not an AR-15, AK-47, or other gun that the media portrays as scary

  10. Nowhere never

    Well... technically, you could list individual options along with several combinations thereof.

    Might get a bit lengthy though... :D

    Actually, I cannot see who voted for what. Is that a JS thingy?

    JavaScript kills me on dialup. :/

    Probably. It shows up for me when I click the number of votes next to each option.

    To apply enough force that you are able to break the force applied by gravity on the mass of the firearm to create forward momentum. :D

    Nah, the result is the forward momentum. The purpose of carrying said unloaded firearm is to achieve the forward momentum.
