Poll: 69 Percent of Americans Oppose Congress's D.C. Gun Bill
The U.S. House of Representatives is considering a bill that would overturn local D.C. gun laws, and District leaders are scrambling this week to revise their own legislation in a way that might be more acceptable to Congress.
Now comes a poll commissioned by DC Vote, the non-profit lobbying group pushing to get the city a vote in Congress. The poll of 1,004 adults was conducted by KRC Research from Sept. 12 through 14, and finds that 69 percent of respondents oppose Congress's move, including 52 percent who "strongly oppose" it. Furthermore, 60 percent said the District would be
more less safe if Congress follows through with the House bill, while 28 percent said the city would be more safe. The poll had a margin of error of 3.1 percent, according to KRC Research.
