Poll: Support for tougher gun laws dropping

Created: 12/13/2013 8:12 AM WHEC.com

Support for tougher gun control laws has dropped nationwide. According to the NBC News Wall Street Journal poll, the numbers have fallen to where they were before the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Just over half of Americans want stricter laws. That's down from 61-percent this past February.

The poll also shows nearly four in 10 Americans think gun laws should stay the same.
