CNN Poll: Most people ever recorded opposing more gun control
But that is not the case. From CNN, 50% of Americans oppose stricter gun control. The previous high opposition was 47% in February 1996. The average opposition was 38%, so the current opposition is 12% higher than the average.
The question is if Americans are evenly divided on having new gun control, how accurate can it be when gun control proponents claim that people want more gun control?
