Do you support Obama’s campaign to ban assault weapons; if so why, do you think he will be successful?


Jeffrey Brown

“Yeah, I am in support of it, and I think it has a good chance of passing. I think they should be banned because don’t nobody need that many bullets. I’ve been shot up twice, and something needs to be done.”

“I think it’s a good idea that he is doing it, but I think without the support of the neighborhood and stuff, it’s not going to be successful. But I think he will make an impact, so I think it’s a good thing.”
