With President Barack Obama announcing a series of executive orders aimed at curbing gun violence, recent polling data seems to offer support for some of those plans.

Each year more than 30,000 people are killed by guns in the United States, including in mass shootings and suicides, at far greater rates than in other countries around the world, the president said.

Obama's gun control announcement comes a little over a month after a mass shooting at a holiday party in San Bernardino, California, that killed 14 people, and nearly two months after the Paris attacks that killed at least 130 and are considered the worst terrorist attack in Europe in 11 years.

A Pew Research Center poll last August, before the most recent mass shooting attacks, found 85 percent of Americans - including large majorities of Democrats, 88 percent, and Republicans, 79 percent - favored expanded background checks. Nearly 80 percent favored laws to prevent people with mental illness from purchasing guns, and 70 percent backed the creation of a federal database to track all gun sales. A smaller majority, 57 percent, supported a ban on assault-style weapons.
