Most Americans support tough new measures to combat gun violence, including a ban on assault weapons and posting armed guards at every school, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
 
More than half of all Americans 52 percent in the new poll say the Newtown shootings made them more supportive of gun control; just 5 percent say they are now less apt to back tighter restrictions. Most also are at least somewhat worried about a mass shooting in their own community, with concern jumping to 65 percent among those with school-age children at home.
 
The findings, which also show broad bipartisan support for requiring mandatory background checks for buyers at gun shows, come as President Obama said Monday he will lay out specific White House proposals on gun control legislation and executive actions this week.

I'll believe the poll taken by Gallup, an objective polling organization over the one conducted by an MSM source with a leftist bent.  Roll Eyes

I'm pretty sure anyone can come up with a poll to show whatever results that they want... all you have to do is look to the previous election to figure that out.

I don't trust ANY poll, they're all too easily manipulated and usually wind up being bullshit.

If you don't want to be banned or keep having your posts deleted or moved, saying more could be a good idea for you.

Deserved sarcasm,... Come on, the least you could do is copy a portion of your linked material as a common courtesy...  Do I really need to make a rule for it? Roll Eyes  That's been a given you should do at least that much even when we posted political shit on general before this forum.  

Don't just post a link, copy a few lines or more but not all and link the rest.
