In reality, anti-gun polling firm Environics delivered the lie their client paid for: “a majority of firearm owners” support banning guns.
The Environics survey shows only 159 of 1,510 total poll respondents own firearms. Of those 159 self-identified gun owners, 131 supported a gun ban (33 “somewhat agree”, 98 “strongly agree”).
On March 9 & 10 2018, the Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA) polled our membership, subscribers to our weekly Canadian Shooting Sports Association E-News and firearms owners on Facebook. We asked a simple, Yes or No question.
