I am hopeful this means Pennsylvanians are willing to reject Gov. Corbett’s wingnut agenda:

Pennsylvania voters support stricter gun-control laws, including a national ban on sales of assault weapons and high capacity magazines, as well as universal background checks, a new poll found.

Voters said they approved (60-37 percent) of a national ban on the sale of assault weapons and supported (59-39 percent) a ban on high capacity magazines, according to a Quinnipiac University poll taken one month after the massacre of 20 children and six adults at a school in Newtown, Conn.

By an overwhelming (95-5 percent) margin, voters supported requiring background checks for all gun buyers.

Fifty-seven percent of Pennsylvania voters agreed that gun-control laws should be stricter, while 4 percent say less strict and 35 percent say keep state laws as they are. National gun-control laws should be stricter, 60 percent of statewide voters said.

A growing number of PA voters are also willing to support same-sex marriage.
