(RoyalPatriot.com )- According to a recent survey conducted by the left-leaning Morning Consult and Politico before Tuesday’s terrible massacre in Texas that killed 19 children and two teachers, most Americans believe Congress should adopt gun control legislation.
Overall, 59 percent of respondents felt it was very or somewhat essential for political officials in the United States to adopt tighter gun control legislation. In comparison, 13 percent thought passing gun limits was not too essential, and 19 percent said it was not. Nine % of respondents had no view or were unsure.
According to the poll, 34% believe that gun control should be a high priority for Congress, while 22% think it should be important but not a top priority.
23% believe Congress should not impose additional limitations on gun ownership, while 14% believe it is necessary but not urgent. Only 7% of people were undecided.
Thirty-five percent thought the federal government should prioritize implementing more vital gun control legislation to avoid additional mass shootings.
The poll had a margin of error of two percentage points and included 2,005 registered voters. It took place on the 20th and 22nd of May.
While the poll was taken before the Texas killings, numerous other high-profile shootings occurred before the survey, demonstrating how frequent such violence has become in American life, a report says. On May 14, ten people were killed in a grocery store shooting in Buffalo, and just last week, one person was killed, and numerous others were injured in a church shooting in Southern California.
A report says that despite the massacres and alleged widespread popular support for tighter gun restrictions, the Senate has refused to vote on bills like H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, which would mandate a background check for all gun transactions. The bill has been passed by the House of Representatives.
Reports show that some unlicensed gun vendors are not always required by federal law to complete background checks before selling firearms. Background checks have allegedly blocked 4 million gun sales to people prohibited by law from having guns.
