Poll: gun control

The Hill -Seventy-one percent of Americans, including 53 percent of gun owners, say restrictions on gun ownership should be tightened, up from 64 percent in the same poll last October.

Just 23 percent of Americans say gun laws should remain the same while 5 percent say the laws should be less strict.

Support for an assault weapons ban is more divided.

Just over half of Americans, 54 percent, would support a congressional candidate who favors banning such weapons, while the poll finds that 57 percent of gun owners would vote against such a candidate. Support for an assault weapons ban among gun owners sits at 35 percent.
