I made a similar topic like this about a year ago, but I want to really know if the results will be different this time around considering what happened so far since January. As someone who supports both the 2nd amendment and gun control, I'm curious to see how many gun owners frequent this site and how they typically vote.

With more hate attacks going on this country, people will need to arm themselves out of self-defense. Of course, it's important to follow your state's laws on handling firearms while practicing gun responsibility.

Question is this poll only for guns owned for self protection or does it include guns only used for hunting?

Both, actually. While hunting guns aren't designed for self-defense specifically, they can still be used for that role if necessary.

Then I count as independent with more than one gun. I have one for self protection that I keep on me at all times. But I also have two guns for hunting. One that I've had since I was 13 my grandfather got it for me and the 2nd my grandfather left for me when he passed away this year both are bolt action rifles.

Shotguns are used for a wide variety of game, and are the best weapon for home defense.
If the truth is bothersome, then change what's true.

Following that, do you believe that there should be a cap that, beyond handguns and shotguns, there is a point to where you have to be certified and show proof that you can use military-grade weapons reasonably and responsibly?

You actually have to have a special license to have "military-grade" weapons.
