An article in The Trace Daily Bulletin today shared findings from a recent survey conducted by the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, the Associated Press and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
Among the findings were:
- Younger Americans are more concerned they’ll be shot than older people.
- 71 percent of respondents want stricter gun laws.
- 52 percent said it’s very important to prevent mass shootings AND ensure people can own guns for self-defense.
- Black and Hispanic people are more than twice as likely as white people to say they or someone they know have experienced gun violence.
- Three-fourths say gun violence is a major problem, and 8 in 10 say it’s getting worse.
