6The United States Congress is currently considering whether to pass a federal law, similar to one that already exists in Indiana, that would allow family and law enforcement to ask a judge to temporarily suspend a person's access to guns if they have evidence that the person poses a significant threat to themselves or others. Do you... strongly support? Support? Oppose? Or strongly oppose ... this federal proposal allowing family members or law enforcement to ask a judge to temporarily suspend a person's access to guns if they have evidence that the person poses a significant threat to themselves or others?

9Current federal law prohibits someone convicted of domestic violence, or who is subject to an active domestic violence protection order from purchasing a gun -- but only if they've been married to, lived with, or have had children with their victim. This law does NOT apply to dating partners, such as an abusive boyfriend, or convicted stalker. Do you... strongly support? Support? Oppose? Or strongly oppose ... prohibiting someone who has been convicted of domestic violence, or who is subject to an active domestic violence protection order from purchasing a gun, including abusive dating partners and convicted stalkers?

6The United States Congress is currently considering whether to pass a federal law, similar to one that already exists in Indiana, that would allow family and law enforcement to ask a judge to temporarily suspend a person's access to guns if they have evidence that the person poses a significant threat to themselves or others. Do you... strongly support? Support? Oppose? Or strongly oppose ... this federal proposal allowing family members or law enforcement to ask a judge to temporarily suspend a person's access to guns if they have evidence that the person poses a significant threat to themselves or others?

9Current federal law prohibits someone convicted of domestic violence, or who is subject to an active domestic violence protection order from purchasing a gun -- but only if they've been married to, lived with, or have had children with their victim. This law does NOT apply to dating partners, such as an abusive boyfriend, or convicted stalker. Do you... strongly support? Support? Oppose? Or strongly oppose ... prohibiting someone who has been convicted of domestic violence, or who is subject to an active domestic violence protection order from purchasing a gun, including abusive dating partners and convicted stalkers?
