Gender and Firearms

Thank you for participating in this study on gender and firearms. This survey will be asking questions about your experiences with, perceptions of, and attitudes about guns. I am conducting this survey for senior thesis research purposes as a student of Applied Research at Meredith College. Please answer honestly. The survey is completely anonymous. You will not be identifiable, nor will your responses, and no one will know you took part in this study. This survey will take about ten minutes. The results may be publicly presented at a later date.

For the purposes of this survey, "firearms" is defined as: handguns, shotguns, or rifles.

Submitting this survey constitutes that you agree with the following statement: "I voluntarily consent to having my responses used for research purposes." You may withdrawal from the survey or nor participate if you so choose.
