  •  is that a problem of granularity of the survey... (2+ / 0-)

    ...questions? certainly seem to be questions that would be addressed in writing the legislation & resultant policies.

    Tho' bogging down a survey of the general population with "how many lost guns is too many lost guns before a dealer loses his license?" may not be the most effective way to address the potential answers.

    As an example, it seems the most frequent answer to such a question in a general population survey might well be "one lost gun is too many, so any lost gun loses the license".

    While responses to surveys may influence and should influence policy-making processes, there's more to it.

    I don't see it as a problem with the questions. It's more that any single survey will not answer all questions on a set of issues.

    Cheers.
