On the issue of gun rights, a small majority — 50-45 percent — said protecting gun rights is more important than controlling gun ownership, but they opposed by a nearly 2-1 ratio ending the state’s limit of one handgun purchase per month.
On the issue of guns on college campuses, 75-20 percent said they should not be allowed.The Washington Post does note that this poll was taken days after the recent shooting at Virginia Tech, which is sure to sway some people's emotions. And I'll note that the poll was taken together with a poll on uranium mining in Virginia. That's such an odd combination that I wouldn't doubt that Quinnipiac University hastily inserted the firearms questions because of the Dec. 8 shooting.
Still, it's not good news.
