Yes, according to the majority of State Fair goers who participated in the 2012 Minnesota House of Representatives opinion survey.
The survey is unscientific, and polls Minnesotans on issues likely to be discussed in the upcoming legislative session. Of the more than 9,000 who participated this year, 63 percent say they believe liquor stores should be able to be open on Sundays, about 30 percent oppose the reform, and 7 percent are undecided.
The poll also asked if we should adopt a "Stand-Your-Ground" type law, meaning Minnesotans could defend themselves against an attacker -- including with the use of lethal force -- and no longer have the duty to retreat. About 48 percent voted against it, 40 percent for it, and 12 percent are undecided.
