During Saturday’s #MarchForOurLives in Washington D.C., Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips spoke with a number of protesters and asked them two simple questions.

First, Phillips asked what kind of policy changes need to be made. Nearly all of the protesters said legislators needs to enact a ban on “assault weapons.” But when he followed that up by asking what an assault weapon was, things got interesting.

Here are some of the best answers:

“Yeah, it’s um, assault weapon. It’s like, um — I kind of do, but kind of don’t.”

“No, I guess. But assault weapons, like, does that sound safe to you?”

“A phrase that comes to mind is like, military style weapon.”

“Yeah, it’s an arm that, like a gun for instance, that you can buy at a shop pretty easily that is, like — can cause more deaths than, like, one, I guess.”

From there, people get more honest about their beliefs.
