Poll Finds 66% Of Voters Want No New Gun Laws

Friday, August 24, 2007

A recent Zogby International poll conducted for Associated Television News found that 66% of the American voting public rejects the idea that new gun control laws are needed.  

The poll asked: “Which of the following two statements regarding gun control comes closer to your own opinion? 

Statement A:  There needs to be new and tougher gun control legislation to help in the fight against gun crime. 

Statement B:  There are enough laws on the books.  What is needed is better enforcement of current laws regarding gun control.”  

Conversely, the poll found that just 31% of the American public thinks new and tougher gun control laws are needed, and that voters who support better enforcement of existing gun laws are found across virtually all demographic groups, and in all regions of the country.
