A new poll says a majority of Texans are for stricter gun laws. Central Texas Democrat Congressman Lloyd Doggett said he's for the gun control ideas put forth by the students behind the Texas Capital Walkout.

"I personally don't support the idea that we need weapons of war in civilian society," said Doggett

Other things students want to see include gun and ammo purchase limits and an end of police departments selling off old firearms to civilians.
