1* Have you or someone in your immediate family bought a gun in the past year?
2* What is the main reason most people purchase a gun – self-defense, to commit a criminal act, for job purposes, or for some other reason?
3* Is it too easy or too hard to buy a gun in the United States today? Or is the level of difficulty about right?
