PPP Poll: Arizona Favors Gun Control

Newscom / b21

The poll also asked: "Do you think the law should restrict those who have been deemed by the courts to be mentally ill from purchasing a handgun or not?" (As the pollster's analysis notes, this is already prohibited in federal law -- but is dependent on the compliance of states and private gun dealers.) The answer: Yes 92%, No 4%.

"Arizona has been a national leader in the gun-rights movement," writes PPP president Dean Debnam, "but after the Tucson massacre, a lot of the state's residents realize something needs to change."

The survey of registered Arizona voters has a ±4% margin of error.
