Pennsylvanians are sick and tired of inaction from our lawmakers when it comes to addressing gun violence. A new poll conducted by Franklin and Marshall confirmed what we already know; Pennsylvania voters overwhelmingly want stronger gun laws.
Here are some key findings:
- The majority of voters believe guns are one of the top issues facing Pennsylvania.
- 60% of voters support more laws regulating gun ownership.
- 88% of voters support stronger background checks.
- 80% of voters support the concept of Extreme Risk Protection Orders.
While the majority of Pennsylvania voters support these bipartisan efforts to reduce gun violence, Harrisburg has refused to hold a single vote on gun violence prevention policies. It’s time to let them know what we think about that.
