Recent Quinnipiac University Poll Surveys Florida Voters’ Views On Gun Laws

By on March 1, 2018 in WNDB News

Florida – A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that the majority of Florida voters oppose allowing teachers and school officials to carry guns on school grounds, and the survey showed that the majority of Florida voters are in favor of a nationwide ban on assault weapons.

“Floridians are strongly united that more needs to be done to reign in guns, especially the type of gun used this month to massacre 17 people in Parkland,” says Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “These numbers show remarkable agreement across the electorate, the kind not seen very often these days.”

From February 23-26, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,156 Florida voters by landline and cell phones with a margin of error of +/- 3.6 percentage points. The poll also separated results by age, gender, race, political party, and education. The results of the poll were released on Wednesday.

During the Quinnipiac poll, interviewers found that 56% of those Florida voters interviewed opposed allowing teachers and school officials to carry guns on school grounds. 40% of voters who responded were in favor of allowing teachers and school officials to carry guns on school property. 4% didn’t know or did not respond. The full results of that poll question can be found below:

“Do you support or oppose allowing teachers and school officials to carry guns on school grounds?”

When asked, nearly twice as many respondents said they would support a nationwide ban on the sale of assault weapons compared to those who opposed the ban. You can find the full results of that poll question below:

More than twice as many total voters who were polled said they would support stricter gun laws in the United States, according to Quinnipiac University. See the full results of that poll question below:

The poll also found that 78% of Florida voters supported requiring individuals to be 21-years-old or older to buy a gun, 96% of total respondents supported a requirement for background checks for all gun buyers, and 53% supported a nationwide ban on semi-automatic rifles.
