Poll Finds Broad Support for Tougher Gun Laws
Date:1/28/2013

MONDAY, Jan. 28 (HealthDay News) -- A large majority of Americans, including members of the National Rifle Association, support a wide range of policies to reduce gun violence, according to a new survey.

The survey, from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, found that 89 percent of people support background checks for all gun sales, 69 percent support a ban on the sale of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons and 68 percent support a ban on the sale of large-capacity ammunition magazines.

Overall, the more than 2,700 respondents supported all but four of the 31 gun policies asked about in the survey, which included gun owners and non-gun owners living in homes with guns.

"These data indicate broad consensus among the American public in support of a comprehensive approach to reducing the staggering toll of gun violence in the United States."

Study co-author Daniel Webster, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, said: "Not only are gun owners and non-gun-owners very much aligned in t
