A new poll shows a majority of Americans support a nationwide ban on assault weapons following the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history on Sunday in Orlando.
The CBS News poll finds that 57 percent of Americans support a ban on assault weapons, up from the 44 percent who said they supported a ban in the same poll in December.
Thirty-eight percent oppose any legislation that would ban assault weapons, compared to 50 percent who opposed it in December.
Most Democrats — 78 percent — support a ban, while 18 percent oppose it. Half of Republicans oppose a ban, while 45 percent are in favor of it.
That's great IF Amerika was still a democracy and not ruled by a bunch of money-hungry baby killers.
