POLL: Do we need stricter gun control laws?

After last week's mass shooting at a Connecticut school, gun control has made its way back into a nationwide debate.

Democrats are urging for a ban on military-style assault weapons and for stricter gun control policies overall.

Even Sen. Joe Manchin, a lifelong member of the National Rifle Association, said it was time to discuss gun policy and move toward action on gun regulation, according to The Huffington Post. “The conservative West Virginia Democrat said Monday he agrees with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has advocated banning the sale of assault weapons,” HuffPo reported.

What do you think? Will stricter gun control policies help prevent future massacres?
