edited to say, give me your email address so i can send you a survey if you want to participate i'm going to school and working full time. the courses i'm taking are 10 weeks long and the class i started today is english comp. the only assignment for the entire class is a research paper 25 pages long so between work and still having a normal family life i dont have much time to do a whole lot of research. my topic (i think) will be a profile of the American gun owner, such as what imcome bracket are you in, how many doctors or lawyers are here or are you like me a general laborer in industry, what is your education, etc. i'll post a poll next tell me anything you can think of that might be helpfull but try to keep it short and sweet so i can keep up, also how many of us are there on this board? i figure there is alot of diversity here. i'm going to try and stick to so-called "assault weapons" as a theme too. thanks for your help educated meaning 2 or 4 year degree uneducated meaning no post high school

I would work the angle that there is no typical gun gunner, that it goes across ecomomic, educational, race, and gender groups

Send me the questionnaire via email and I will fill it out. I am a female gun owner, which would be another good twist to your paper.

yes i'm going to do that but at the same time i want to show that there is an average gun owner (evil assault rifle owner) and i'm sticking with "assault weapons" to prove we are not gangbanger thugs, redneck drunks, etc. since that is the way we are often portrayed i'm working on a questionaire in MS WORD because thats the only way i know to do it, any suggestions will be appreciated edited to say i dont know if i will use all of this info for my paper but i am going to forward a condensed version to the newspaper and my reps. when i'm done and any links relative to this will be helpfull

Have you never heard of these horrifying Assault Weapons? They wander the streets randomly gunning down completely innocent and helpless women, children, and kittens. Not to be confused with the deadly and dangerous Assault Wagons, the SUV-like creatures who escape from their drivers' control and run over every living creature in their paths.

Superdave, we don't own "assault weapons". We have only Homeland Defense Equipment.

Why don't you ask 25 of us to write a page each, or 50 of us to write 1/2 page each, or 100 of us to write a paragraph each, 500 to write a sentence each, or............. Feel free to use this, let me know if I can help.

One of the first things they teach you about making surveys is that on multiple choice questions the answers must be exhaustive and mutually exclusive. What this means is that all possible answers must be among the choices and you must not be able to pick more then one answer. What if someone went halfway thru college and now is a white collar employee ? What answer do they fill in ? Also you must define your terms. What does educated mean to you ? Educated could mean alot of different things to different people. White/blue collar is a little less vague but you should define that too.

You don't really need to work anything,gun owners across all lines is just what he will find. There is no one type of guy that owns guns,the only thing you could say all gun owners have are guns. Only if you are looking for to something to twist and spin would you have a need to put all gun owners in a group. If not, here is something to think about, gun owners are the only group to be looked at buy the FBI before they can be part of the group. So what you have is the safest group in America having been looked in to by the Feds and found to be ok. People on TV that give us the news of the day or the folks lobby for gun laws have no been checked out. If you are the type that buys what the Feds say (like so many do)we are the far better people than most.

SPORT UTILITY RIFLES a term the soccer moms and liberals can wrap their minds around." Thanks, Hank, another good term! I still prefer mine. But I think both of our terms are better than "assault rifle".

Iam A disabled vetren with collage education in (juvenile justice) area, done mostly all blue collar work (heavy equipment)(machinist),I have my first rifle of age 12, also age 15 aswell at age 18 ( the last two were handed down from my brother and father from my grand father whom passed when i was age 3 or 4. Just in the last three years i have begun to re-loade my own bullets, boughten over 20 diffrent weapons, from revolvers to semi-auto pistols,pre-bans, and long range rifles. I have curently 1 revolver,1 long range rifle,1 pre-ban ar-15 comando, 1 1911 .45, 1 16 ga. shot gun, 1 30-30 rifle, and a .22 rifle (first gun)( the last three were given to me that i use still). I like the challenge of the longest shot possible with the best shot grouping, (out do my brother and friends :o)), Being able to go hunting in all kinds of conditions,Poring down rain, Blazing heat, Swampy, rocky mountains and all that aplies, . So many people think that some one that owns a gun is scared of their shadow or are just freaks of a civilized nation, I think not, we all have our own reasons for owning a weapon, from collecting to protection to hunting to computition to law enforcement to always have wanted one, there are more as well better reasons to those out there but this is just i general statment. To me rule number one ,concerning guns(weapons), is that guns don't kill people-poeple kill people, from there there are many veriables such as accidents, Not waiting long enough for a miss fire, improperly passing a weapon to someone, all around not being safe,etc. I have grown up in the oregon coast range, not in the city,not in a large town, the nearest town of 1000 is two miles away that spreads over a five mile area. I had a heart attack over 15 months ago, i still shoot my 7mm rem. mag. and planning to get a 7mm rem. ultra mag. This is a consern to doctors when a heart is involved, i use plenty of padding on the stock with a PAST pad on my shoulder.
