Washington: A majority of Americans in three swing states have supported the national ban on high-capacity magazines, but do not think additional gun laws will prevent mass shootings, according to a new poll.
According to the New York Times/Quinnipiac University Poll, carried out after the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting, almost 58 percent of Americans in Colorado support a ban on magazines.
At the same time, fifty-seven percent support the ban in Wisconsin, where a man killed six people at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee on Sunday, Politico reports.
In Virginia, another swing state with a mass shooting in recent memory, 52 percent of Americans support the ban.
Thirty-eight percent of Americans in Colorado, 44 percent in Virginia and 43 percent in Wisconsin think the nation's gun laws should be stricter.
Half of Coloradans, 44 percent of Virginians and 48 percent of Wisconsinites think the laws should be kept the same.
However, less than 10 percent in each state think the laws should be made less strict.
Regardless of changes in the law, Americans in the three states don't think laws can stop future mass shootings. Two-thirds of Americans in Colorado, 60 percent in the Old Dominion and 57 percent in Wisconsin don't think stricter laws can stop future attacks, the poll revealed.
