PBS Gun Control Poll Results – You Have to See These Numbers
PBS probably wasn’t expecting the poll numbers they got when they ran a recent poll on gun control.
The question asked was: Would you support more restrictions on guns in your state?
The choices were:
Yes. Increased regulations on firearms are necessary to prevent another tragedy like the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary.
No. Laws like this unnecessarily punish lawful gun owners and will do little to prevent mass shootings.
Unsure. It’s important to keep the weapons out of the wrong hands, but this may not be the solution.
The results with over 100,000 votes cast were startling. 95% (nearly 97,000 votes) answered “No. Laws like this unnecessarily punish lawful gun owners and will do little to prevent mass shootings.”
Here’s a screenshot of the results as of 12/17/14.
