Support for Gun Control Hits New High

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that 54% of Americans now favor stricter gun control laws, numerically a five-year high, and 59% support a ban specifically on high-capacity ammunition clips.

In addition, more than half of Americans "say the school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, reflect broader problems in society rather than an isolated act of a troubled person - more than after other recent shooting incidents, suggesting the possibility of a new national dialogue on violent crime."
