Respondents were asked whether they felt federal laws improperly intruded on their personal liberties and if so, whether the government was trying to take away more of their personal liberties. Respondents' indicated whether they felt that their personal liberties had been intruded on by taxes or a ban on assault weapons, whether these intrusions were major or minor, an d whether they were justified. Respondents were polled on whether the United Nations had too much, not enough, or the right amount of power and influence in the United States. Respondents were asked to give their opinions of how the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) handled the standoff with the Branch Davidian cult in Waco, Texas, and whether the amount of force used by the FBI was justified or excessive.
