Support for Gun-Control Legislation Dropping
Support for gun-control initiatives has decreased, reports CNN:
According to the survey, 56% support a ban on semi-automatic guns, but that’s down from 62% in a CNN poll taken in the days after the shooting at Sandy Hook. The same is true for a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips — 62% in December, down to 58% now — as well as a requirement for all gun owners to register their firearms with the local government — 78% last month, down to 69% now.
Expect to see those numbers drop some more in the upcoming weeks as the battle over gun-control legislation reignites.
