A recent poll of 1,000 voters revealed that most respondents support the Second Amendment and have little interest in new gun control laws.
The survey was conducted by New York-based McLaughlin & Associates, who covered all regions. Their respondents were primarily middle class with a mean age of 49. The respondents were slightly left in nature, with 51 percent reporting that they voted for Biden in the recent election, and 57 percent claiming approval of his current performance.
In total, nearly three quarters of those surveyed said that they support Americans’ right to keep and bear arms, with a narrow 6 percent claiming strong opposition to the Second Amendment. More crucially, 55 percent of respondents said that they would prefer stronger enforcement of existing laws over adopting new gun laws.
This is corroborated by a recent Gallup poll which revealed that 41 percent of the American public is supportive of stricter gun laws.
When asked about recent shootings in Atlanta and Boulder, incidents used by gun control advocates to advance their agenda, 45 percent of respondents claimed that they felt that stricter gun control laws would have made no difference in the outcome, with a mere 38 percent feeling the opposite way.
The results of the survey also revealed that two-thirds of Americans also believe that new gun control needs to be enacted through the democratic process, not executive orders.
