Should the United States Have Stronger Gun Laws? [POLL]
The gun debate is still raging in Washington and throughout the United States. Vice President Joe Biden is expected to give recommendations to President Obama by Tuesday about guns. GOP-controlled states are already trying to block new federal gun laws by passing “gun protection bills”.
A new poll by Gallup claims that 38% of Americans are in favor of stronger gun laws. According to Politico:
According to the Gallup survey, 38 percent of those questioned believe that gun laws should be strengthened and are dissatisfied with current law, a 13-point jump from a year ago and the highest it has been in over a decade. Eighteen percent of Republicans, 64 percent of Democrats and 31 percent of independents surveyed expressed that opinion.
Forty-three percent of Americans are satisfied with today’s gun laws, and 5 percent are dissatisfied but want looser gun measures. Last year, 50 percent of those surveyed were satisfied with current gun laws and 8 percent wanted less stringent laws.
