Which is more to blame for the mass shooting at a Florida high school earlier this month – the failure of government agencies to respond to numerous warning signs from the prospective killer or the lack of adequate gun control? We’ll you what Americans say at 10:30.
Most Americans continue to believe that violent video games and movies make America a more hostile place.
But just 13% feel that limits on violent movies and video games would do the most to reduce incidents like the one in Florida. Forty-one percent (41%) believe stricter gun control laws would do the most to reduce the number of mass murders, while just as many (40%) say more action to treat mental health issues would make the biggest difference.
