Q. Do you think Australian gun ownership laws are too strong, not strong enough or about right?
|Total||Vote Labor||Vote Lib/Nat||Vote Greens||Vote other||July 2015|
|Not strong enough||44%||47%||49%||47%||39%||45%|
While 45% of Australians think that our gun ownership laws are ‘about right’, almost the same amount (44%) think that they are ‘not strong enough’.
These results replicate those from July 2015.
The results are consistent across voting groups, however ‘other’ voters are slightly more likely than the average to think that gun ownership laws are ‘too strong’. However even amongst these voters the largest proportion say they are ‘about right’ (43%).
