Support for Gun Control

In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings, the majority of Americans (54 percent) say they support stricter gun laws, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Dec. 17. Fifty-nine supported a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips such as those used by gunman Adam Lanza in Connecticut.
