Poll: Americans Believe Concealed Carry Makes the Country Safer

A Gallup poll released on Tuesday shows that a majority of Americans believe concealed carry makes the United States safer.

The poll, conducted between Oct. 7 and Oct. 11, asked respondents “if more Americans carried concealed weapons, would the United States be safer or less safe?”

Fifty-six percent said the United States would be safer. Forty-one percent said the country would be less safe. 3% had no opinion.

The pro-gun results mirror another recent Gallup poll showing that most Americans believe guns are not too easy to get.

The poll also found that a majority of Americans, 86 percent, favor universal background checks. Only 12 percent of respondents oppose them. Two percent had no opinion.
