There's an online poll at HarkTheHerald asking if we approve or disapprove of the proposed bill to allow people to carry a loaded gun in their cars.

I voted yes.

I invite you all to do the same.

If you're wondering why I voted yes, it's because the right to self-defense in one's own home (the Castle Doctrine) should not evaporate when one is in one's own car. A great number of states allow the unlicensed carry of a loaded gun in cars. Just last year, Missouri joined those ranks. At the same time that the Missouri Legislature enacted their shall-issue CCW law, they also made it legal to have the means of self-defense in one's own car. This right is not limited to those with CCW permits.

I don't buy the argument that this will allow unstable or felonious individuals to have guns in cars. Criminals already carry in an illegal manner. Any prohibition to law-abiding citizens from carrying in a car has no effect on criminals.

It's time for Utah, which is generally a pro-gun state, to modernize this part of the law.

The WHOLE time I was watching this poll, the numbers were HEAVILY in the anti-gun's favor. When it closed, the numbers were 70% in our favor and 29% in theirs... I am thinking it was reporting garbage and after it closed, the real numbers were used.

Of course I have no idea what happened, but at least it shows the right outcome.
