Were you carrying a gun when you went to vote?
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 12:47:00 PM EDT
Left it in the car while went in to polling place. It is illegal to carry into a polling place in TN.

Ditto, polling place was also a school. Another Tn No-No.

Yes, I was packing when I _went_ to vote. But left it in my truck in the parking lot when I walked in to cast my vote.

The Great State of Ohio does not allow me the right of self protection

Of course I did, I had my young son, and the polling place was in a school. What better place for some nut job to go crazy?

Well since you didn't have a slot for "Were you carrying 2 or more pistols" then I guess I have to go with #1.[:D] Big(YouCanNeverKnowWhenALarge#OfLiberalsMight­Attack!)Dozer66

No carry here in the land of virtually no crime (LA County). However, I was wearing my new HK Anti-terrorist t-shirt to ward off any evil do-ers! The registration broad gave me a funny look but I figured she didn't want to go there.

My polling location was a school also. That's a felony offense in Georgia even though the kids had the day off.
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 1:17:17 PM EDT
On my way to vote in about an hour. Yes, I will be carrying, as always.

The State of Misery has gauranteed my safety with an outstanding, underpaid police force. Why on earth would I need a gun?
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 1:32:01 PM EDT
Nope,illegal here in Michigan.(polling place was a school).It sucks!
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 1:35:37 PM EDT
Well my Voting location was in a church and I certainly have no scruples about carry in a house of worship, but FL law doesn't allow for legal carry at any government sponsored event. Had to go cast my votes with out a bullet launcher close at hand (and the church is in dem- hostile territory!). The Horror...the horror... .

I did in MI, my polling place was in our Township hall.
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 1:56:56 PM EDT
NY? PUUULEAASSSE! Not only was it a school, but to carry concealed, you must meet "requirements" either that you carry a certain amount of money a week in receipts or that you are in fear of your life and can prove threats. Us mere mortals cannot own and carry for our protection, that's why we have the highest paid cops in the nation to protect us! Its working too, I'm not dead by a crack head yet!

I voted in the comfort of my living room. All voting is done by mail in Oregon.
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 4:36:33 PM EDT
I had to go with the 3rd one. I left my firearm in the car.(the polling place was at my daughters school any way) AB
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 4:40:51 PM EDT
It would have been a felony in my state, with a mandatory jail term (polling places are in schools).
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 4:41:00 PM EDT
Sat in the vehicle with guns and kidlet while the wife voted...then she was armed in the car while I voted.
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 7:40:45 PM EDT
Of cource, I was in uniform
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 7:47:43 PM EDT
Nope,voted in a school but I was wearing my Molon Labe hat.
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 10:48:34 PM EDT
I remember "go to vote." Vote by mail is the way in Oregon now.
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 10:50:29 PM EDT
Mail in ballots here. Of course I was armed.
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 11:00:22 PM EDT
Armed to the Teeth. dropped my ballot off at the library. Because I can.
Link Posted: 11/5/2002 11:12:58 PM EDT
SigPro .357 Sig, Smith wheelgun in an ankle holster, extra mag, 5 rounds in a Speedstrip and a Surefire. I had to go to the ghetto for work tonight.

No CCW in WI (not untill long after I'm gone now, with our new gov)... AR-15 in the trunk, however...
Link Posted: 11/6/2002 1:50:28 AM EDT
I was carrying, but I was in uniform prior to going to work as a Deputy, so I can do that...otherwise, we unfortunately do not have concealed carry in this state.

Link Posted: 11/6/2002 2:20:19 AM EDT
Yup. Glock 22 inside the shirt, and a Mossberg 500 in the truck as always.
Link Posted: 11/6/2002 2:45:54 AM EDT
No, because there was a police officer at the polls voting. About 10 years ago, he was my CSM at Fort Benning....
Link Posted: 11/6/2002 2:53:41 AM EDT
Left it in the car. Illegal to carry at a polling station here in Ms.

Armed while going to vote? You bet! Ankle holsters (one on each), double shoulder holsters, one pistol on each hip, one in the small of my back, and a friggin bazooka taped to my forehead. If there's one occasion in life, one time where being armed is essential, one moment in time where your very existance is so threatened we all know it's going to vote. For the next election, I'm hoping a petition for a special voting method will go through....it's sort of the best of both worlds. I would like to have a special ballot that is hoisted up AT LEAST 200 yards away from me, that I can actually shoot my selections out of the ballot with a scoped rifle. That way I stay armed AND at a safe distance.

Thank you 82ndABN for putting it so succinctly. Until X-ray detectors are standard on every street corner and public building I think you know my answer.

Sometimes I forget how good we have it here in Indiana. I just thought 'Of course I was carrying, why wouldn't I??'. I truly weep for you guys in states with shitty carry laws. -Nuke

I don't have my CHL, yet. So, no I was't carrying. However, I did check the regs after getting home. Polling places are on the "No Carry Allowed" list. The reason that I even looked was due to the fact that they asked me to remove my coat and leave it on the other side of the room. My inclination was to tell the to screw off. Especially when I realized that I was the only person they asked. Just because I was wearing a trench coat (it was cold by TX standards) and looked pissed off (I always do when I wake up from a nap) and still wear a short flat-top (I've been accused of looking like a skinhead) is no reason to be afraid of me.

No, the voting precinct was at a school. BUT, in the nearby city of South Bend a UNIFORMED, ON DUTY police officer was temporarily barred from voting because he had a VISIBLE sidearm. He was asked to leave it outside which he refused to do. After calling several police and election officials, he was finally allowed to vote. Full story at South Bend Tribune local news. EDITING NOTE: The story was deleted from the website in the past 15 minutes. It is in the print edition and was on the website earlier today.

Glock 30, 10rd reload, (20rds 185gr Golden Sabre), Cold Steel voyager tanto, Spyderco Delica, and two daughters (10years and 7 months). There was a uniformed Deputy at the polling place, a fire station. Very friendly attendants. No waiting. Even offered to hold the baby while I voted. I exercised several rights.

Chalk me up as another Floridian who wasn't supposed to, but did anyway. I honestly totally forgot, and being that I was on my motorcycle, it would have been rather difficult to "leave it in my vehicle", at least without someone seeing me and getting upset.
Link Posted: 11/6/2002 10:05:24 AM EDT
No, I wasn't carrying because Minnesota doesn't allow me to. However I will be carrying next election because our REPUBLICAN governor, REPUBLICAN house, and our pro-gun senate will vote in a carry bill in the upcoming session!!! [beer]
Link Posted: 11/6/2002 11:26:40 AM EDT
That would be a yes, as always...
Link Posted: 11/6/2002 11:50:19 AM EDT
I don't actually carry a "permit" because I consider my "permit" to be the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution!!!!!! Being forced to carry a so called "permit" infringes on my right to bear arms!!!
Link Posted: 11/6/2002 11:58:06 AM EDT
I did, and it wasn't even concealed! In WA, we can opt to vote via absentee ballot (the only way to go)! Not that it mattered much, though. Way too many democrats! [marines]
Link Posted: 11/6/2002 12:36:10 PM EDT
When we voted at the Church; always. Since they changed the polling place to my "kidz's skool"; NO. Not today. But, I had my AR15.com CRKT LE blade (aka, "The Trolley Tool") in my belt pouch...[:D]
