In a new poll, conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute between August 8-12, it’s been found that over 2/3 of Americans think that the Second Amendment is just as important as the First Amendment.

However, a small majority of Americans also feel that more enforcement and restrictions should be placed on gun ownership.

Here are a few highlights from the article

The poll … revealed three-quarters of people believe concealed guns should be banned from churches, government buildings and college campuses.

Just 11 percent of people say allowing more private citizens to carry guns for protection is the most important thing that can be done to prevent mass shootings

…consistent with conventional wisdom, the poll found Democrats are three times more likely than Republicans to say stricter gun control laws and enforcement is the most important factor in preventing mass shootings.
