Its been too long since stats in college to tell you much about the numbers other than the above. I personally feel that the results from this little unofficial and un-scientific study are too close to call. It seems the longer the poll was up (I put it up sometime early this spring) the more people were voting "No". I caution those of you out there who voted "No" not to be lulled into a sense of safety due the relative inattention gun control has gotten from the White House. Take a look at our President's voting record in Illinois on the subject and the state of affairs in Chicago and ask yourself the same question again. He has another 3 1/2 years to do what he wants.
Thanks again for your participation!!
