New Poll Shows Strong Support for New Handgun Laws

| by Ceasefire PA

Voters from across Pennsylvania – from Erie County to Philadelphia – are sending
a clear message that handgun violence presents a crisis that our elected
officials in Harrisburg must address immediately. A recent survey of 600
registered Pennsylvania voters in swing state legislative districts reveals a
worried public that wants concrete action taken to reduce violence caused by
handguns.

The recent spate of gun violence in Pennsylvania, including the shooting of
five police officers in three weeks, has voters looking for leadership on this
issue. Across counties, legislative districts, and all sides of the political
spectrum, a strong majority of voters support stricter handgun safety laws to
reduce crime and violence. Specifically, voters overwhelmingly approve of
measures to require handgun owners to immediately report lost or stolen firearms
to the police and to limit the purchase of handguns to no more than one per
month.
