Americans Aren’t Eager for Ban on Fur Sales

New York City is considering joining San Francisco and Los Angeles in banning the sale of fur, but Americans aren’t eager to extend that ban to the area where they live. Few think it’s government’s job to regulate what’s legitimately for sale to the public anyway.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 31% of American Adults favor a ban on the sale of fur in the locality where they live. Forty-two percent (42%) are opposed, but 28% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
