Public Backs Clinton on Gun Control

But Handgun Ban Opposed

Report Summary

As concern about crime has supplanted the recession as the public’s single greatest worry, Americans express strong support for Bill Clinton’s efforts to control the use of handguns. Most also say they would like to see the President challenge the National Rifle Association, which a growing number of Americans feel has too much an influence on gun control laws in this country.
