Poll: Americans donít think gun control is important
In New Poll, Support For Stricter Gun Control Law Drops Since Newtown Shootings
The emotional tidal wave is over, people are returning to their senses, heaven forbid!!
In the months following the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., polls showed greater support for stricter gun control laws.
A new CBS News poll released today, however, finds that growth has deflated back to pre-Newtown levels. CBS reports:
"Currently, support for stricter gun control laws stands at 47 percent today, down from a high of 57 percent just after the shootings. Thirty-nine percent want those laws kept as they are, and another 11 percent want them made less strict.
"Partisans hold different views on gun control laws: 52 percent of Republicans want the laws kept as they are, while 66 percent of Democrats want stricter laws (down from 78 percent in February). Half of gun owners themselves want gun laws overall kept as they are, but a quarter call for stricter laws."
