Poll: Two-thirds back national gun registry

Many gun owners are worried about the government taking their guns – and that’s particularly a concern for Republicans and conservatives, two-thirds of whom say they are worried that the government will sieze their weapons. More than one in four Republicans and conservatives are very worried.

Throughout the last few years, Americans in general have favored stricter gun control.  But support has weakened since early 2013, after the Aurora and Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings.
