Majority Americans believe ’stricter gun laws’ can reduce mass shootings

A recent poll by ABC News/Washington Post shows that six in 10 Americans are worried about a mass shooting in their community. Besides, an overwhelming majority (89%) support background checks for all gun purchases and ’red flag’ laws (86%) allowing the police to take guns from individuals found to be a danger. 58% expressed confidence that stricter gun laws would in fact reduce mass shootings.

To those who agree with that poll, I urge you read the second amendment. The federal government has no right to infringe on that.

Interesting stuff: More than 342,439 people were shot to death in the United States from 2008 through 2017 - that's a person getting killed with a gun in this country every 15 minutes Gun homicide rate in the United States is 25 times higher than in other high-income nations
