97 Percent of Voters Support Background Checks on All Gun Sales — the Highest Level of Support Since Quinnipiac Began Polling the Question After Sandy Hook
WASHINGTON – Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a part of Everytown for Gun Safety, released the following statement in response to new polling by Quinnipiac that shows the “the highest level of support” for stronger gun laws “ever measured by the independent Quinnipiac University National Poll.”
STATEMENT FROM JOHN FEINBLATT, PRESIDENT OF EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY:
“Americans across the country, including students, educators, mothers and fathers are standing up to demand stronger, not weaker, gun laws. It should be simple — there is near unanimous support among voters for requiring criminal background checks on every gun sale. It polls better than apple pie. But too many of our leaders aren’t reflecting the will of the people, and if they continue to sit on their hands, then voters will throw them out.”
STATEMENT FROM SHANNON WATTS, FOUNDER OF MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA, PART OF EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY:
“This support isn’t something new – Americans have been clamoring for stronger gun laws for years, but it’s our elected leaders are too often standing in the way. If lawmakers refuse to do what’s right, we’ll throw them out.”
