Texans Support Stronger Laws to Prevent Gun Violence

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Despite a well-known gun history and culture in the state, Texans support a range of stronger gun laws, from background checks to requiring domestic abusers and stalkers to turn in their guns. As research has shown in other red and purple states, voters fundamentally believe that protecting people from violence and protecting their right to own a gun are not mutually exclusive goals, with 76 percent saying it is possible to do both in Texas.
