Poll analyzes Americans' opinions on increased consumption. Scott Rasmussen, founder and president of Rasmussen Reports, joins Ginny Simone by phone to discuss a recent poll on the reasons behind rising gun and ammo sales. Fifty-seven percent of Americans attribute the upswing to fear that the Obama administration will restrict their gun freedoms, while only a minority considers crime to be the primary motivating factor. Rasmussen cites a widespread feeling that the government is willing to intervene in all levels of American life.
