I’m sick of hearing that gun owners think this, and gun owners think that. The NRA-ILA went right to the source and commissioned a poll of 1,000 NRA members and the opinion of those members and gun owners certainly do not match up to any gun control politician’s remarks.
Here is the full poll, and some results are below. The “survey consists of 1,000 NRA members and was stratified by state to reflect voter distribution in the 2012 presidential election. The margin of error for this survey is +/- 3.09%.”
- 92.6% think the country is heading on the wrong track.
- 90.7% favor reforming our mental health laws to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill.
- 5.3% of NRA members favor making it completely illegal to own high-capacity magazines … required buy back.
- 88.5% oppose new federal assault weapon ban.
