Clinton is right to say the majority of Americans and gun owners support these policies. A recent Gallup poll showed 86 percent support nationwide for universal background checks. Another survey posed the same question to gun owners and found 83 percent support. On preventing people on the no-fly list from purchasing guns, Republicans actually favor the measure by a greater count (90 percent) than Democrats (85 percent).
What Clinton doesn’t mention here is her support for banning assault-style weapons. Survey results have fluctuated in the past few years, but a CBS poll this summer showed 57 percent support nationwide for the ban.
