The myth is that Texas is a gun-loving state, and wouldn't support stricter gun laws. But Texans are not so different from the rest of the country. They don't want guns easily bought by dangerous people.
About 84.4% of registered voters in Texas support requiring ALL people trying to purchase a gun to pass a background check. And 75.7% support a red flag law (which would allow a judge to take the guns away from a dangerous person).
By smaller, but still significant margins, Texans also support banning ammunition clips holding more than 10 bullets (61.1%), and banning the sale of assault weapons (59.4%).
The charts above reflect the results of a new University of Texas at Tyler Poll -- done between September 13th and 15th of 1,199 registered Texas voters, with a margin of error of 2.8 points.
