Another timely item from Brietbart.com that I almost missed. AWR Hawkins reports:  A new poll finds the percentage of Americans who think gun control too strict is at its highest point since 2001 and triple what it was in 2013.

The Gallup poll shows that “55 percent of Americans… are dissatisfied overall with American gun laws and policies.” Among the dissatisfied, 16 percent are Americans who believe gun control laws should be rolled back.

Gallup notes that this is a change from a historical trend in which the dissatisfied usually want stricter gun laws. But in January 2014, the 16 percent of dissatisfied Americans who actually think gun control is too strict is up more than three times what it was in January 2013, while the number of those who want more gun control has fallen from 38 percent to 31.

In 2013, only 5 percent of Americans believed gun control was too strict.
