62 Percent Support Lifetime Gun Ban For Those With Police Record

32 percent oppose


The recent record of inaction in the halls of Congress doesn't show it, but new poll found Americans are, in fact, willing to support legislative actions to stop gun violence.

The survey released late Tuesday by United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection found that 62% of Americans would back a lifetime ban on gun sales for people with a police rap sheet or background of violence. About 32% are against that kind of proposal.
