"Back in 2011, after a gunman in Tucson killed six people and wounded 13, including US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Americans took a fatalistic view of whether anything could be done to stop future mass shootings. A CNN poll at the time showed that voters believed by a 2-1 margin that there was nothing the government could do to prevent future attacks.
Seven years later, that’s all changed. A new poll released by CNN on Sunday found that 64 percent of American voters now believe the government can “take action that will be effective” in preventing mass shootings in the future. Only 32 percent believe that such attacks will happen “regardless” of government action. The poll comes a week and a half after the Feb 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida left 17 dead.”*
