Pew Poll Finds Increased Support For Gun Rights

The figures for Republicans and Democrats haven't changed much, but there has been a large change in Independents.

A year ago, Independents were equally divided 48% to 45% in favor of gun rights, but that 3% gap has grown to 12 percent (53-to-41) in just one year.

Also, note that the overall approval rate for gun ownership is the highest that the Pew Poll has recorded in 17 years of polling on this question.
