    Gun Background Check Questionnaire

    Hey guys, this is the questionnaire for the debate I'm having. Please keep in mind that I did not write these questions, as it was a job of another person in the debate. My professor just required me and the others in my group to ask the questions to 20 people each, so please ignore any mistakes. I also apologize in advance for the quite personal questions (all of which were the only required ones from our professor).

    I must have 20 of these complete by Tuesday, so you guys doing them would be a life saver. Please try and be honest so we can collect correct data.

    Posting answers in the following format would make it easiest for me:

    1 - A
    2 - B
    3 - C
    4 - D

    etc.

    Thanks again guys.

    Optional question......to exercise my God given right. To provide food. To protect my family. To protect myself. To protect the innocent. To protect the weak. To protect my property. To protect even the ignorant individuals that wish to take my gun because they don't know shit about guns and even less about human nature.

    Optional: Recreation and self defense.

    Mass shootings tend to be committed by the mentally unstable, a person with a political agenda or both. Criminal background checks are unlikely to stop these types of people from obtaining weapons. Gun control laws tend to go after weapons of the AR or AK type. The Navy yard shooter used a shotgun as recommended by Joe Biden.
