Pennsylvania Voters Back Preemption

Go to page fifteen of this new poll:

As you might know, there is a chance that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court may soon hear a case regarding gun and firearm laws here in Pennsylvania. The current law came out of a case 13 years ago called Ortiz v. Commonwealth. There, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ruled that the state legislature is the only body that has the power to establish gun laws in the state and that municipalities cannot pass their own gun law ordinances.

Do you (ROTATED) agree or disagree with the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania’s ruling that the state legislature should be the only body of government to establish gun laws here in Pennsylvania? (PROBED: And would that be STRONGLY or SOMEWHAT AGREE/DISAGREE?)

56% TOTAL AGREE (NET)
39% STRONGLY AGREE
17% SOMEWHAT AGREE
38% TOTAL DISAGREE (NET)
11 % SOMEWHAT DISAGREE
27% STRONGLY DISAGREE

Also, the spread between gun owning and non-gun owning households was only five percent. So it would seem preemption has broad support among a large number of Pennsylvanians.
