Fox News poll: During a manhunt, 69 percent of voters want a gun

On Friday, the nation watched as the Boston area went under lockdown during a manhunt for the armed and dangerous marathon bombing suspect. If you were in that situation, would you want a gun at your side?

Most American voters say yes, according to a new Fox News poll.

Sixty-nine percent say if they were in a situation similar to Bostonians, they would want a gun in their house.

That includes a large 88-percent majority of those in gun-owner households, as well as 50 percent of those in non-gun homes.

President Obama and lawmakers in Washington have been working on gun-control proposals since the December school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
