Public support for gun control grows
LOS ANGELES – Public support for stricter gun laws has leaped to its highest point in eight years with 58 percent now in favor, according to a USA Today/Gallup poll released Thursday. That’s a 14-point jump from last year.
Of those surveyed, 92 percent of Americans want background checks for buyers at gun shows and 62 percent want to ban magazines that carry more than 10 rounds, which have played a frequent role in mass shootings.
But Americans still oppose a full ban on semi-automatic assault rifles 51 percent to 44 percent, and opposition to a full handgun ban is higher than it has ever been, at 74 percent.
