Abstract
This special topic poll focused on crime in the United States. Respondents were asked to estimate whether violent crime was going up or down in the United States and in their own neighborhoods. The survey also posed questions designed to estimate crime trends involving assault weapons and to determine whether respondents favored or opposed stronger legislation controlling the distribution of handguns and assault weapons in the United States. Additional questions related to legislation that would put a heavy tax on bullets. Respondents were asked whether they thought that stronger legislation controlling the distribution of handguns in the United States and the tax on bullets would reduce the amount of crime and violence, and if respondents would give up some of their freedoms if it meant a reduction in criminal activity. Demographic variables include race and sex.
