Gallop: Record number of Americans oppose handgun ban

Topics:

A new 'post-Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting' Gallup poll shows 74 percent of Americans now support the right to possess a handgun, while just 24 percent would support a ban.

And a majority of Americans remain opposed to an assault weapons ban -- something Americans supported a decade ago.

In other words, Americans may like the idea of new gun control laws, but supporting the actual inaction of legislation to control them is an entirely different matter ... which makes more gun control a very difficult issue for Congress to legislate, as it damn well should be.
