Despite their collective shock, anger and grief after mass shootings, Americans are still divided about whether new gun law restrictions should be put in place. A CNN/ORC International poll released on Aug. 9 shows that 50 percent favor only minor restrictions or none at all, while 48 percent want major restrictions or a complete ban on gun ownership by individuals. (Photo: REUTERS/Jessica Rinaldi /Landov)
