This national survey, based on 1,557 responses, is the first survey ever published which tries to determine the degree of support for legal initiatives on guns that reflect strategies of both the gun-rights and the gun-control communities. It compares the degree of support for public policies that align with advocacy efforts of both groups, and lets respondents express how they feel about both gun-rights and gun-control initiatives regardless of whether or not they own guns.
