Massive Support for Background Checks

A new Quinnipiac poll finds that 88% of voters nationwide support universal background checks before allowing purchase of a firearm while just 10% are opposed.

More interesting is that 85% of gun owners are also in favor.

But National Journal notes "these polls" showing broad support for background checks "may gloss over some complexities in public opinion on gun control, and explain why Democrats are having so much trouble winning congressional support for even the most modest gun regulations."
