Voters Ranked Gun Control Low Priority

Despite the more than $100 million spent by billionaire and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg to buy seats for gun control in the next Congress, voters ranked gun control at the bottom of the list for their concerns. Topping the list was health care, immigration, and the economy. Gun control was a priority for only 11 percent of survey respondents. Even as control of the U.S. House of Representatives flipped, and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D.-CA) is presumed to be the next Speaker of the House, this was far from a ringing mandate for more gun laws.
