Most Americans support new gun restrictions, ABC-WaPo poll says

in Uncategorized by

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds most Americans, including half of all gun owners, “say it is possible to enact new laws without infringing on gun rights, and overwhelming majorities support expanded background checks at gun shows and for online gun sales.”

“The findings come as the Senate prepares for its first votes on new gun legislation this week, in what will provide an early test of strength between the influence of the gun lobby vs. the power of public opinion, at least when it comes to background checks.”
