Guns: Oregonian survey shows majority want beefed-up background checks and restrictions on assault weapons
According to an Oregonian survey of just over 500 Oregon Adults, nearly 60% said assault weapons make society more dangerous, 27% said they make society safer, 14% said they didn’t know. But when it comes to putting tighter restrictions on gun ownership, respondents were split up the middle on whether they want their federal legislators to vote for further restrictions. Fully 20% said they were unsure. The survey also clearly revealed that those living in the urban areas of Portland were far more likely to favor tougher gun controls than across the rural rest of the state.
