Opposition to Banning Handgun Ownership Remains at Record-High 74%

“Nearly a year after the Newtown, Conn., school shootings spawned considerable U.S. debate about passing stricter gun control laws, almost half of Americans believe the laws covering the sale of firearms should be strengthened and half say they should stay the same or be less strict,” gallup.com asserts, summarizing data from its most recent gun control survey. Well, that’s their takeaway. Mine’s different . . .

I mean who says ‘No, I don’t want gun control laws strengthened when the nature of those changes are left unspecified’?

The good news: “Public support for stricter gun laws is down from 58% in the days after the December 2012 Newtown shootings.” Even better: “The new poll also finds public opposition to banning handgun ownership holding at a record-high 74%, identical to a year ago. One in four Americans think the law should limit possession to police and other authorized persons.”
