TX – GUN CONTROL – Texans overwhelmingly want gun background checks, are open to red flag laws, DMN-UT Tyler poll finds

Texans strongly support expanding background checks for gun purchases and laws that let police remove guns from people deemed by a judge to be dangerous, according to a Dallas Morning News-University of Texas at Tyler poll. The poll, taken six months after the massacre of 22 people in El Paso, also found that a majority of Texans don’t believe elected officials are doing enough to prevent mass shootings. “There’s overwhelming majority support and that is across-the-board bipartisan,” said Kenneth Bryant Jr., an assistant political science professor at the University of Texas at Tyler who conducted the poll. “The more restrictive the policy, the lower the support across the state because Republicans are becoming more oppositional.”
