Stricter Gun Control Support at Historic Low
Gallup has their annual gun control poll up here. This year's poll continues the trend of previous polls showing less support for more gun control and growing support for no change or less gun control. 44% of Americans want more gun control, 42% want to keep it as it is, and 12% want less gun control.
Americans are also less likely to say there should be a law banning the possession of handguns except by the police and other authorized persons. The current 29% who favor such a law is within one percentage point of the low of 28% recorded last year.
