    Most Americans Feel Gun Control Laws Are OK

    (Angus Reid Global Scan) – Many adults in the United States believe the current regulations regarding firearms are adequate, according to a poll by Rasmussen Reports. 52 per cent of respondents believe the U.S. does not need stricter gun control laws.

    The U.S. Constitution’s second amendment guarantees Americans the right "to keep and bear arms." Some American states have enacted their own gun control regulations, independent of existing federal legislation.

    A Republican-initiated gun legislation project that would have protected weapons producers against lawsuits was voted down in the U.S. Senate in March 2004, after Democratic lawmakers amended the bill to include mandatory background checks for purchases at gun shows.

    Where do they get that conclusion from the question: Does the U.S. need stricter gun control laws?

    I don't think that the gun control lawas are adequate, instead I beleive that they are draconian. My NO answer should not me miscontrued to mean that our gun control laws are Okie-Dokey.
