With two mass shootings in a month, American voters say more needs to be done about enforcing gun laws — but they don’t believe in limiting gun ownership — a new poll shows.

According to a new Rasmussen Reports survey, two-thirds of likely U.S. voters — 66 percent — say the United States needs stricter enforcement of existing gun control laws after a mass shooting at a Texas church left 26 people dead. 

A smaller number — 27 percent — disagreed. 

American voters largely don’t believe in limiting gun ownership to law enforcement agencies and military officials, with 59 percent saying the idea would be “bad” for America. 

Over a quarter of voters — 26 percent — said they believed limiting gun ownership would be “good” for America.

 

The national survey of 1,000 registered voters was conducted Nov. 7-8, 2017, by Rasmussen Reports and has a margin of error is +/- 3 percent with a 95 percent level of confidence.
