New Reader Poll: County Administration Building dress code

The Board of Supervisors has done away with the dress code in the County Administration Building, but postponed a decision on removing the ban on carrying firearms. What's your take?



• Yes, keep the ban in place.

• I haven't made up my mind yet.

• An armed society is a polite society.

• I wish football season wasn't over.



Feel free to leave comments below. Poll is located on the home page, lower right.

Keep the ban on firearms and reinstate a dress code that is a show of respect for where a person is. If someone wants to wear clothing with filthy vulgar language on it-they can do that at home and not subject me to it anywhere at any time!! I hate vulgar language and abhore the use of it in ANY public place in any form. It is worse than the use of regular tabacco will ever be and should be made illegal in all public places!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“The smoking bans have helped destroy property rights. … that is why thousands of small business have folded, loss of customers and today with the bad economy it makes it even worse.”

And still, when asked, you have never been able to support either of those assertions – reporting instead on English pubs that felt a downturn in business following the smoking ban in England. Still waiting!

@az mac...you misunderstood my intent, which dealt solely with carrying guns to BOS meetings and such. I absolutely believe in "anything goes" when it comes to defense of your home and family.

There are over 2 million crimes stopped by good people with guns every year.
Yes an armed society is more polite when you do not know who is armed. The bad guys hate an armed society, they love gun bans and gun free zones.

The smoking bans have helped destroy property rights. Only the owner of the property has the right to say who can do what on his property. If a business owner chooses to allow smoking and non smokers do not like it then they do not have to enter the property. Smokers do not have to go where smoking is not allowed, that is why thousands of small business have folded, loss of customers and today with the bad economy it makes it even worse.

How about lifting the smoking ban. Our Country was founded by tobacco farmers.

Keep the ban in place but get rid of the metal detectors.
Put signs on the doors saying that firearms are not permitted.... that will keep the law abiding citizens from coming through the doors with guns on hips.
Then all you have to worry about are the ones that won't obey the law, they'll come into public meetings and start shooting and there won't be anyone to stop them because the law abiding citizens have put their guns in their vehicles!

Normally, I would be opposed to restrictions on freedom, but how much of this criminal system could you remove with a six-shooter anyway?

Article comment by: Is this poll very serious?

I think your question is silly when the answers are not serious. I would see the ban lifted, but I do not see an armed society as a polite one, especially since I see so much anger and hatred in our society today.

Keep the ban on guns in county buildings. I am not sure if the metal detectors are necessary. I believe only a sign is required per the current law.

Keep the ban on firearms in place for all public buildings.

As an armed person (most of the time) I also feel there is no reason for carrying in a public meeting of this sort, nor to carry while doing business in a public building.

If I am out in a park or just walking...then yes...I want to be able to defend myself if needed...though common sense says do not put yourself in situations where it's needed. Anyone who intentionally goes looking for trouble can normally find it.

"... there is no reason to carry them into a public meeting where tempers often flare and self-control can be lost."

Excellent point and as an indivdual who is armed the majority of the time I agree. As I rule I leave my weapon in my vehicle when going into any government building. It just makes sense to me.

I question people's observation that an armed society is a polite society, have they not heard of all the shootings recently?
I am not against guns by any means, however, there is no reason to carry them into a public meeting where tempers often flare and self-control can be lost.
