91% want background checks. 91%. 67% want a ban on armor-piercing bullets. 60% are for an assault weapons ban. And 54% want to limit ammo magazine capacities to 10 rounds or less. Clear? Clear.

Gallup:

The question does not tell respondents that all nine proposals come from Obama's recently released plan to reduce gun violence; however, the wordings used to describe them intentionally follow the White House's "Now Is the Time" plan descriptions. [...]

Although Democrats show more support than Republicans for each proposal, majorities of both partisan groups favor seven of the nine proposals.
