Safety First?

Lawmakers take note. A Marist poll published April 3 found that 53 percent of Americans believe that controlling gun violence trumps protecting gun rights, up from 49 percent. Broken down by party, gun control is more important to 77 percent of Democrats and 34 percent of Americans. In addition, 63 percent of gun owners say it’s more important to protect their rights.
