Gun control survey questions is a questionnaire to gather information what people think about gun violence, gun control, factors and effects of possession of firearms. This survey aims to identify public opinion to understand if possession of guns/firearms is needed for self defense or is it the reason for increasing crime rate. The push to possess firearms for the purpose of self defense and it prevents injury is a false notion and should not be promoted, as this notion has been questioned and proven to be wrong. For most people around the world it is simple, more guns mean more crime and more death. Since, many a times policies and laws can be made with influence of the general population, such a survey will be helpful to gather opinions about gun control and gun violence.
There are tens of thousands of deaths and injuries related to gun violence in the United States. In 2013, there were around 73,505 non fatal injuries and 33,636 deaths because of firearms. We keep hearing about people carrying weapons attacking general public in the news. One of the talked about incident was in 2012, in Connecticut. A 20 year old man with armed pistols and semi-automatic rifle killed around 26 people in a school in Newton. A 2017 study in American journal of public health stated there was a rise of 8.6% homicide rates due to firearms. The American population in 2014 was around 319 million people and 371 million firearms were owned by US civilians. But an in-depth study also revealed that 14% of the US population was the one who owns all of these weapons.
Following are the questions to gather information about public's perception about media accountability and the factors that affect them.
