SALEM — A majority of Oregonians support stricter gun laws, according to a new poll by the Oregon Values and Beliefs Center.

The nonpartisan independent research group on Thursday released data reporting 59% of survey respondents say they believe the state’s firearms laws should be stricter, which is in line with an April 2021 Pew Research poll finding 60% of Americans want stricter gun laws.
