One Response to Obama’s Gun Control Legislation Slightly Opposed in Michigan

  1. Thank you for reporting the results of this survey that “… 54% supported banning future manufacturing and sales of semi-automatic assault weapons.” The 1994 law to ban assault weapons expired in 2004. Since that time, the use of assault weapons has increased. Dianne Feinstein introduced the new bill to ban assault weapons. Please see her website which lists three pages of organizations that endorse her bill to ban assault weapons.
