Packin' Heat in VA—An Unscientific Readers Poll


The New York Times editorial page is in high dudgeon over a couple of college students who are exercising their right to strap on pistols in public under Virginia's liberal open carry law. After all, Heinlein character Lazarus Long once asserted that "An armed society is a polite society."

I propose that readers respond either an initial yes or no (and then add whatever additional comments they feel necessary) to the blog.

So are Hit & Run readers worried about, say, dining in restaurants with patrons openly armed with pistols?
