    good summary of gun polling here. Some things have more support than others.

    AWB is not top of popularity list, though poll by poll you get different results.

    I get you don't like it; it looks like a 50-50 proposition with the public. High capacity magazine ban, background checks are an easier sell.

      and you won't loose us hunters.

      An AR-15 with a 10 round clip is no difference then my granpa's old semi-auto except his was a .30-06 while my AR is a tiny .223.

      The 30 round clip is the biggest issue for AR's currently.

      With that said, we are still discussing a type of gun that is responsible for almost none of the gun violence in this country statistically.  Go for handguns and shotguns if you really want to make a dent in gun violence since they account for most of it.
