Questions for a Gun Manufacturer

(This list of questions was developed by vigilers during a recent demonstration in support of gun safety and reductions in gun violence.)

  • Do you support background checks for gun owners and gun purchasers? Why or why not?
  • Do you support safety features on guns? Can you give examples of the kinds you support?
  • Do you believe guns make the world more secure? Please explain.
  • What place do assault rifles have in our lives in our communities?
  • How satisfied are you with current gun regulations? Are there any changes you would like to see in regulations?
