A new poll released by CBS is showing that support for new gun control measures is waning.

The poll was conducted from March 20-24 and included 1,181 individuals.

Gun control support reached its peak in the weeks following the shootings at Sandy Hook.

According to CBS, Currently, support for stricter gun control laws stands at 47 percent today, down from a high of 57 percent just after the shootings. Thirty-nine percent want those laws kept as they are, and another 11 percent want them made less strict.

Self identified Democrats had a much higher support for more gun control than self identified Republicans.
