More than half of Americans want stricter gun control laws in the wake of multiple mass shootings, according to a new poll from Gallup that found support for tighter firearm rules jumping by 6 percent since 2014. The latest Gallup survey released on Monday said that 55 percent want more restrictive gun control guidelines, a total up from 49 percent the year before. Support for keeping the current gun laws in place is also down 4 points, falling from 37 percent in 2014 to 33 percent now. The number of people who want less-restrictive gun laws also dropped from 13 percent in 2014 to 11 percent this year/The Hill. More here.
