Poll: Americans Disapprove of Obama’s Handling of Gun Laws, Believe Gun Ownership Makes Us Safer


An Associated Press (AP) poll released July 23 shows that 59 percent of Americans disapprove of President Obama’s handling of gun laws, and an even greater majority, 62 percent, believe owning a gun makes people safer by “preventing them from becoming victims of crime.”

The poll also shows that 53 percent of Americans support national reciprocity for concealed carry permits. National reciprocity renders a concealed carry permit issued in one state valid in every state. An overwhelming majority of respondents also said a “high priority” for law enforcement should be “cracking down on people who own guns illegally” and “cracking down on people who sell guns illegally.”

Interestingly, 42 percent of poll respondents consider themselves Democrats, including those who “lean” Democrat, while only 36 percent consider themselves Republicans, including those who “lean” Republican. When asked about ideological leanings, 44 percent of respondents considered themselves “moderate,” 33 percent “conservative,” and 19 percent “liberal.” – READ MORE
