A new poll released by Mayors Against Illegal Guns makes some bold claims about support for universal background checks in New Jersey — namely, that in some areas, the support itself is nearly universal.This is very interesting because if you listen to the gun-rights fanatics you'd expect the poor oppressed citizens of The Garden State to rebel against such terrible interference in their basic freedom and right to protect themselves.
In New Jersey's 4th congressional district, the group says, 100 percent of the 400 people surveyed support such checks. It said support was similar — though not quite as overwhelming — in several other areas.
According to the poll results, universal background checks are favored by 95 percent of voters in New Jersey's 2nd district, 89 percent in the 3rd district, 100 percent in the 4th district, 91 percent in the 5th district, 92 percent in the 7th district, and 97 percent in the 11th district.
But instead we have overwhelming support for this most sensible gun control measure. Could it be their poor education? No, that applies to places like Alabama and Mississippi. Could it be they don't know what they're getting into? No, they already have nearly the strictest gun control laws in that nation, and now they want more.
