Via Washington Secrets:

Three-quarters of the public back gun ownership, and many feel that President Obama should dump his gun-control plans because only states should regulate the weapons, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll. [...]

Seventy four percent believe the Constitution guarantees the right of gun ownership. Also, 75 percent believe it is “morally acceptable” to have a gun in the home.

And as Obama prepares new gun control legislation, the poll found that just 44 percent believe that laws governing guns should be the responsibility of the federal government.
