There Are Still New Yorkers Who Think It Should Be Easier to Buy a Bunch of Guns

By

After a brutal, bullet-riddled summer in New York City, not to mention a soaring murder rate in Chicago and mass shootings in Colorado and Wisconsin, 8 percent of New Yorkers maintain that firearm laws should actually be less strict, while 28 percent believe they should stay the same, according to a new Quinnipiac poll. That leaves more than 60 percent saying, you know what, let's go ahead and make those laws stronger, but a full 26 percent of those polled oppose a proposed bill limiting handgun purchases to just one per month. Because who knows when you are going to need to grab a few at once. Just in case.
