Sixty-seven percent of Americans say they agree with President Barack Obama's latest executive actions on guns, though six in 10 of them say they will not be effective in curbing gun violence, according to a new survey.

The survey of 1,027 adults in the CNN/ORC poll found that 32 percent oppose the actions, which were announced on Tuesday and would tighten federal background checks for gun sales, require gun sellers to be licensed or face criminal prosecution, and expand mental health treatment.

The survey, which was taken Tuesday and Wednesday, was released shortly before Obama held a town hall meeting hosted by CNN on gun violence.

Here are some of the results:

Do you believe Obama's actions will be effective in curbing gun violence?
Not effective: 57 percent.
Effective: 41 percent.

Do you approve of the way Obama is handling gun policy?
Disapprove: 53 percent.
Approve: 43 percent.

Do you favor Obama using executive action on gun policy instead of working through Congress?
Oppose: 54 percent.
Favor: 44 percent.

Has Obama gone too far in trying to change gun laws?
Too far: 38 percent.
The right amount: 31 percent.
Not far enough: 30 percent.

Do you or anyone in your household own a gun?
No gun in household: 51 percent.
Owner of gun: 27 percent.
Gun in household but someone else's: 13 percent.

The CNN/ORC poll has a margin of error of 3 percent.
