Marion Hammer, call your office.
There’s a new poll out this morning that Hammer, Florida’s most prominent gun rights advocate, won’t like.
By a 91 – 8 percent margin, consistent with margins found in other states surveyed by the independent Quinnipiac University, Florida voters support universal background checks for gun purchases. Voters in gun-owning households support universal background checks 88 – 11 percent.
“Floridians’ views on guns are pretty much in line with results seen in other states surveyed by Quinnipiac University,” Brown said. “Women are more likely to support restricting guns than men; blacks more than whites and Democrats more than Republicans. The idea of requiring background checks on those who want to buy guns has overwhelming support, 91 – 8 percent, in a country where getting a majority to agree on anything is often difficult.”
