Polls can be as biased as the persons conducting it. The results all depends on how questions are written and where the poll is taken. I’ve seen polls taken in the same area, only with questions written differently and yielding different results.

That’s why we all need to be careful about reading reports on polls like a recent one by Morning Consult and Politico. The first red flag is that Politico is more liberal than conservative, so their poll will naturally be skewed to the left.

However, many people will see their latest poll claiming that most voters are against the online posting of the blueprints for 3D printed guns. The questions everyone needs to be asking is how did they word their questions and to whom did they poll?

Trending: Robert De Niro Thinks This Dem Senate Candidate Can Beat Trump In 2020

(Morning Consult) – Most U.S. voters oppose public posting of blueprints for 3D-printed guns and think the government should regulate self-made guns the same way it treats other firearms, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico poll.

3D printers use materials, often plastic, to create three-dimensional versions of objects based on blueprint designs. Opponents of 3D-printed guns are concerned the printers could be used to create untraceable, easily destructible and often undetectable firearms.

Right now, 3D printed guns are illegal unless they meet the requirements set by the Undetectable Firearms Act, which requires that guns be detectable by a metal detector.

But how the law treats blueprints for such guns came under scrutiny after the State Department agreed to allow Defense Distributed, a Texas nonprofit that distributes digital blueprints for 3D-printable weapons, to share its instructions online…

The ironic thing about the entire controversy about online posting of blueprints for 3D printed guns is that a number of them have already been posted online, which means they are already out in the world for anyone to access. One thing that everyone should have learned by now is that once anything is posted online, no matter what one does to remove it, someone can always find it.
