Which is probably a good indication that actual responses aren't even counted and they will wind up a preconceived result.

Don't worry.

In the end, the results will be used by the likes of Elizabeth Warren (The only former Native American faculty member ever at Harvard ) Who will report to the American public in the coming year as she campaigns, that 95% of Americans are dissatisfied with existing gun laws, and that statistics include Republicans and NRA members taken by a nationwide scientific poll conducted by Harvard.

If elected she will fulfill the desires of Americans by advocating and enacting more gun laws.

Well... to a gun grabber the answer would be "No". Because gun laws are too soft to them. They want super strict gun laws.

To a 2nd amendment advocate, the answer would also be "No" because we believe in an unabridged right to bear and keep arms. So no, most of us are not happy with the crazy restrictive mish-mash of gun laws.

But its the type of response that the lefties at Harvard would misrepresent because they will show that all these NRA members and republicans are dissatisfied with existing gun laws? But they won't say why. The devil is in the details.

Am I not correct?


I didnít answer that question as I felt the same. That needed to be a written answer which I noted at the end and why.

Please be more careful about where you go clicking and entering your email address. There is no reason whatsoever to believe this is a "Harvard survey" besides the logo. If the poor grammar didn't give it away, you should note the URL is NOT harvard, it's qualtrics.com.

harvard.az1.qualtrics.com

This can be set up by anyone and now they own whatever information you've entered.

Come on guys.

Even if it's not a Harvard run survey, I don't care. All of the personal information they were asking for (which isn't even that personal) is already out there. I also put tons of fake information about me out there so that results about me are skewed.

As far as happiness with gun laws goes, I had to think about that one for a bit. I don't like the direction the country is going in regards to wanting to put more restrictions on firearms but another hand, at least we can still purchase and fire them. When compared to European and Asian countries, I think we are still fortunate in the USA.

Aside from signing petitions, filling out surveys, educating my anti-gun friends and voting against every anti-gun initiative, I don't know what else I can do to keep my gun rights.

If you look at history, they've been under attack for a long time (before most of us were even born). I read that some towns in the late 1800s would confiscate firearms due to the concern of gun violence in those areas. And in the 1920s, cities started doing intense anti-gun legislation thanks to the violence caused by alcohol prohibition. And of course, in the 1930s, FDR signed the National Firearms Act.

It's funny how the government tried to fix the problem that they created. They outlawed alcohol, gangs went into business, violent crime went up and in response they decide to put restrictions on guns? I'm glad they overturned the alcohol part (not because I'm a drinker, but a believer in individual freedom), but why couldn't they overturn the NFA?

I take the Libertarian-left stance on this. Today, you can legalize, tax and regulate the flow of drugs and put the gangs out of business. That would make our streets safer and bring down gun crime significantly. In addition, the FBI needs to prioritize investigating potential mass shooters, schools need to address the issue of bullying and we need to figure out way to give the mentally ill help.

I'm under the belief that if you do those things, there would be no reason to continue the gun control debate because gun violence rates would drop lower than it ever has. That's being proactive rather than reactive. Even if you disagree with some or all of what I said, at least I'm offering solutions other than suggesting we outright confiscate everyone's guns.

It'll be interesting to see what happens in the next 100 years.

I do the same thing... Bing and Yahoo think I am a 96 year old woman, which is why I always get those ads for adult diapers and assisted living facilities.

Well I'm sure they registered my IP address as a known gun owner for the day they get those policies passed. Here's my comment from the end:

Gun control is one of my political barometers. Show me a politician thatís for the gun control policies you had in your survey and Iíll show you a politician that doesnít trust the judgment of the typical citizen and most likely a nanny stater. After all if you canít be relied upon to pay your own way, earn a living etc, how could you be relied upon to handle the responsibility of owning a firearm?.....

You're doing it. Talk to as many people as you can. Get involved and VOTE, get others to VOTE. I've seen a huge shift in demographics at gun shows over the past 10 years or so, both in the Denver and Raleigh areas. There's LOTs of new shooters out there to wake up to the cause and overcome the BS the MSM has been pumping for decades. Most importantly, set a good example.

Well, that was interesting. The question about thoughts I think was what level of support for current gun laws with the sliding scale. So I left it at 0 showing no support. Funny (not funny haha)how we 2A supporters look at Liberals the same way we look at them. There is a one large difference though. Most of us could care less how "they" live their lives, but they seem to care an awful lot how we live ours. That makes them the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei.

Simply put, "An armed person is a Citizen, an unarmed person is a subject"!! I would also add that if 2A ever goes away there will be mass genocide in the USA as they cull out the undesirables, and deploreables. Or they'll try.

As was mentioned before, after taking it the first time and protecting my identity, I went back 5 minutes later and took it again. That makes it appear that there are no controls in place unless they recorded IP address.
