(ELON) -- North Carolinians offered mixed messages about guns and gun control legislation in the latest Elon University poll. Poll spokesman John Robinson said on particular gun laws or potential laws, respondents indicated support for the expansion of gun rights or the use of deadly force if they feel threatened even if it is possible to retreat, known as a “stand your ground” law.

"Two-thirds of the people that responded to us think that gun owners should be able to keep their guns locked in their cars while they're at work, which is the law now," said Robinson.

Forty-four percent of respondents believe gun control laws in the state should remain as they are now while 33 percent saying gun laws should be made more strict.  Just 15 percent said gun control laws should be less strict.
