When it comes to the second amendment, voters want it to always be guaranteed! We asked voters, "Should Americans always be guaranteed their constitutional right to keep and bear arms (the 2nd amendment to the constitution) or should the second amendment be altered due to recent gun violence?" Nearly three in five (58%) said they should always be guaranteed their right to keep and bear arms. A third wanted the second amendment to be altered, and ten percent were not sure.

Almost every subgroup had a plurality or majority of support for always being guaranteed their second amendment rights. Out of a total of 45 demographics surveyed among voters, the only two groups where there was a majority support for altering the second amendment were among democrats (51%) and self-identified liberals (61%).

Support for keeping the second amendment was broad- age, race, income, education or where people live did not factor into how voters felt, which was they like their right to keep and bear arms. Some of the more interesting demographics to support second amendment rights were millennial voters (53%), Amazon weekly shoppers (52%), ANTIFA supporters (60%), NASCAR fans (70%) and Weekly Walmart shoppers (67%).

The bill which still has many hurdles in the Senate had majority support among 44 out of 45 subgroups tested, including single voters (53%), women (63%), millennials (54%) and even democrats (52%). The only group where a majority opposed the law are those who self-identify as liberals (55%).
