A recent poll demonstrated the majority of Minnesota gun owners are in support of background checks when purchasing firearms.  Among the 800 people polled for the sample,  more than 70 percent  supported background checks for those who are attempting to buy guns.  The survey shows that most agree the background checks should be also applied to those  who are buying guns at gun shows.

According to the Minnesota Star Tribune…”But among average Minnesotans, such a bill appears to have broad and deep support. The poll, conducted Feb. 25-27 among 800 Minnesota adults, found that 82 percent of those living in Hennepin and Ramsey counties support universal background checks, along with 91 percent of DFLers, and 60 percent of Independents. Among those over the age of 60, three in four favor such checks, as do 81 percent of women. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Outside the metro area, in areas where gun ownership is highest, 69 percent of those polled supported universal background checks.”

The poll found that most respondents favor a national database for conducting background searches on the prospective gun buyers.

Those who opposed to the implementation of background checks cited increased costs and bureaucratic logjams.

After all the rancor, the endless storm and stress, it appears background checks for weapons purchases will be approved by the U.S. Senate.  After much deliberation  it appears that the Senate is close to reaching an agreement for gun control background checks.

According to an article on Bloomberg….”While many congressional Republicans have ruled out a renewed ban on assault weapons, advocates for stricter laws say there is support for tightening laws to help prevent criminals and individuals deemed violently mentally ill from obtaining firearms. A Quinnipiac University poll released Feb. 7 found more than 9 in 10 Americans support universal background checks.

A limit on the number of rounds in high-capacity magazines also faces challenges to advancing in Congress as the restriction is being offered in Leahy’s committee in a single bill along with an assault weapons ban.”
