A new public opinion poll conducted by Franklin and Marshall found that support by Pennsylvania voters for gun regulation is at an all-time high.

Franklin and Marshall’s June 2018 poll found that:

  • 86% favor expanding background checks
  • 61% favor banning assault weapons
  • 51% raising the minimum age for gun purchases to 21

This is the highest amount of support for gun reform in the history of Franklin and Marshall Polling, which has been conducting polls since 1994 and has asked questions about gun regulations for over a decade.

In June, the House Judiciary Committee failed to vote Universal Background Checks, HB1400, out of committee.

CBS Philadelphia published a story on the results of the poll.
