Web Poll: Do we need stricter gun control laws?
The school shooting in Connecticut has caused public attitudes — and the views of some politicians in Washington — to shift.
It’s too early to tell how far the changes in attitude will go and whether they’ll result in additional gun control laws.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll released Monday found 54 percent of Americans support stricter gun control laws, while 43 percent are opposed to any new gun control measures.
President Obama has said something needs to be done related to gun control. Plans are vague right now as a White House spokesman said Monday that steps would be taken “in coming weeks.”
