"A little over 50% of Americans who claimed to be a Second Amendment expert confessed they had never actually read the amendment, but were definitely aware it existed due to the National Rifle Association and conservative propaganda networks," explained TNA Senior Researcher Dick Schneider.

"About 54% of these 'experts' think the Second Amendment gives them the right to overthrow the government. They also show clear psychological denial symptoms after any mass shooting in the United States by blaming anything but the firearms involved," stated Schneider.
The TNA study discovered approximately 29% of the self-proclaimed Second Amendment experts were unaware of much else in the Constitution, though they could make some vague statements reminiscent of language in the First Amendment.
Pro-gun groups led by the NRA condemned the TNA study, and accused it of "slandering patriotic Americans who outwardly appear to be completely ignorant of the Second Amendment's meaning, but absolutely are not."
