More than half of Americans polled want stricter gun sale laws


More than half of Americans want stricter laws when it comes to the sale of guns, according to the results of a Gallup crime survey released Monday.

Among adults nationwide, 55 percent want regulations to be more strict, up 8 percentage points from 2014. Just 33 percent think things should remain as is and 11 percent want fewer laws on the books.

The latest survey was conducted in the days after the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.
