I assume that most readers are sympathetic to free markets and small government.
But that doesn’t mean there’s universal agreement about how we solve various problems created by excessive government.
Last year, for instance, survey questions that I included with two posts generated very interesting results.
- In August, I reported on a guy who got pissed at the cops for screwing up his life with a marijuana arrest, so he responded by crushing some empty police cars with a tractor. I gave people four possible ways of responding to this story, and the results (based on my arbitrary division) showed a 60-40 split in favor of libertarianism.
- In November, I asked which candidate readers preferred. I was somewhat surprised by the results. Not only did Romney get nearly 70 percent of the total, but Obama wasn’t that far behind Gary Johnson. I’m not sure how to interpret those results, but they definitely suggest that anti-Obamaism was more powerful than pro-liberatarianism.
So now I’d like to get a sense of how readers view gun control. Here’s a poll with five possible answers. Feel free to share it widely so we can get the broadest possible set of responses.
I’m not going to say how I would vote, but this interview with NRA-TV may give you a hint.
But I don’t include that link to sway the vote. I genuinely am curious about why people support (or don’t support) the Second Amendment.
