56% of people say stricter enforcement of existing laws would be the best way to reduce gun violence. 38% believe new, stricter laws are necessary.

50% said they would support a law that bans semi-automatic weapons. 59% support a law that limits the amount of ammunition which a gun can hold at one time. 66% support a law that puts limits on the quantity of ammunition that can be purchased at one time.
