Quinnipiac released a National Poll of 1,711 registered voters on April 4, 2013.
Question #24 shows 88% of gun-owning households in favor of background checks for all gun buyers.
Question #25 shows 53% of gun-owning households believe that the government will use information from background checks in the future to confiscate legally-owned guns.
So, the majority of people who own guns and think that background checks will lead to confiscation still want background checks. Really?
Something definitely smells fishy about that. I'd love to meet that 42% overlap and ask them why they think that. To my knowledge, I have never met a gun owner that thought both of those things simultaneously, certainly not 1 in 3 gun owners that I meet.
