Gun rights activist dismisses polls

The chief of a power gun owners group said Wednesday he doesn’t trust the methodology of polls showing an overwhelming number of Americans favoring universal background checks on gun sales.

“I’m not sure I believe any polls at this time. I don’t think they know how to ask the right questions,” Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer during a contentious interview on “The Situation Room.” When Blitzer asked if that included Fox News’ survey, Pratt said it did.

Nearly every national survey released over the past several months has shown a large percentage of Americans support increased background checks. [cont.]
