Wall Street Journal Poll RE Open Carry

Wall Street Journal - Stores Land in Gun-Control Crossfire

There is a poll on the WSJ webpage above regarding whether retailers should allow open carry. It seems that the larger retailers mentioned (Starbucks and Best Buy) don't want to set any policy contrary to the local laws.

The vote on the poll is in favor of the retailers following the law instead of anti-gun protests.

I"m not sure if I voted or not.

I tried to, but when I hit the vote button, it threw me into the online discussion forum.

When I went back and clicked the link to view the results of the poll... it threw me into the online discussion forum.

When I went back to the page, it showed how I had voted (circle was shaded next to the answer I selected). When I clicked on "View Results" it also took me to the comments page, but the graph for the vote results was displayed at the top. It takes a few seconds for the graph to render.

Currently (769 votes)...
70.6% for "Follow local law and allow"
7.5% for "Make own chain-wide policy"
21.8% for "Prohibit guns"

Maybe I wasn't waiting long enough for the graph.

That would explain things.
