The MSN-Zogby poll found that 59 percent of Americans do not believe stricter gun control policies would have prevented Cho Seung-Hui from killing 32 people and then himself in the worst mass murder in America's history. The poll found that only 36 percent of those polled believe stronger gun control could have prevented the shootings.

However, arming more Americans with guns is not the answer either, most people say. Slightly more than half of those polledâ€"54 percentâ€"say that more guns would not stop killing sprees. Thirty-eight percent believe a better-armed populace could help prevent such mayhem. (The interactive survey of 1,336 adults nationwide was conducted April 17-18, 2007, and carries a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points.)

Here's another one, from the AP:

Women were nearly twice as likely as men to say gun laws should be tightened. Overall, 47 percent of people think gun controls should be stricter, 38 percent say they should stay the same and 11 percent want looser restrictions. That represented little change from surveys taken before Monday's mayhem, in which 32 students and teachers, plus the gunman, died.

"That was devastating. It's frightening to think how easily someone could purchase guns in this country," said Amy Scott, 32, an elementary school teacher now staying home with her young children in Galveston, Ind.
Another one of the sheeple heard from :shakehead:
