A Pew Research Center for the People & the Press poll, taken after the Colorado shooting, shows that 47 percent of Americans say it is more important to control gun ownership, compared to 46 percent who say it is more important to protect the rights of Americans to own guns. While Pew calls this “no significant change” from April numbers, it does represent a 5-point swing since their previous poll, in which gun rights were prioritized over gun control, 49 percent to 45 percent.
