Contributing sentiments towards policy:

50% : "Let's look at those particular gun dealers where there's a real correlation and connection with the guns that are used in our streets, those who are -- those states with lax gun laws, where you can walk into a gun shop with a license and walk out with the gun," he said.
40% : But when asked what he would propose in terms of national gun reforms, Adams didn't endorse a complete ban on handguns, instead proposing a crackdown on gun dealers and lax gun laws in states across the country.
36% : Adams told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" that Democrats' priorities on gun laws at the federal level are misguided, saying they've focused too much on banning assault rifles in the aftermath of mass shootings, while they should be focusing more on gun crimes committed with handguns, which are more common.
