Topic: Gun Policy (2/6) - Obama's second-worst issue

As you may know, this week Barack Obama announced several executive orders that change the nation’s gun laws so that background checks are required for more gun purchases online and at gun shows, and which make it easier for the FBI to complete background checks efficiently. Overall, do you favor or oppose these changes?

Favor: 67%

Oppose: 32%

No Opinion: 2%

Two-thirds of Americans support stricter background checks and more FBI oversight on gun purchases, both of which are key components of Obama’s executive orders on gun laws. As the polls indicate, however, Americans are less likely to approve of Obama’s method in enacting this policy reform.
