Greenburgh Poll: Tighter Gun Control After Newtown Shooting?

GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Calls to strengthen the nation's gun control laws have come from parents and politicians — even the president — in the days since 20 children and six adults were shot and killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Greenburgh, tell us what you think in the poll and comments section below.

President Barack Obama said the nation must "take meaningful action" when he spoke just a few hours after the shooting Friday. He repeated his call for the nation to discuss gun laws when he spoke at a vigil in Newtown on Sunday.

“We can't accept events like these as routine," Obama said in his speech. "Are we really prepared to say we are powerless in the face of such carnage — that the politics are too complicated?"

U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., says she plans to introduce a bill banning assault weapons when the new Congress goes into session in January.

Gun-rights supporters, including the National Rifle Association, have been mostly quiet since the shooting. Republican U.S. Reps. Louis Gohmert of Texas and Don Richardson of Oregon have suggested arming more school faculty members.
