Poll: 54 Percent Want Stricter Gun Control

NEW YORK, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- The December massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., seems to have swayed public opinion on stricter gun-control laws, a poll indicated.

The New York Times/CBS News poll found that 54 percent of Americans say they think gun-control laws should be tightened, up markedly from a CBS News poll in April that found that only 39 percent backed stricter laws.

A gunman killed 20 children, six adults and himself at the school Dec. 14.

    Yeah and 52 percent voted for Obama. There can be stupidity in numbers.
    Most of these fools have no idea what they are asking for.
