Minnesota State Fair poll reveals big support for universal background checks

Minnesota State

The recently held Minnesota State Fair poll had revealed a surprising response from residents as it showed that almost 90 percent of those who took the survey are in favor of universal background checks for gun sales. The annual fair was attended by more than 6,000 people who had taken part in the poll which contained questions that directly concerned them.

The poll itself contained varying questions that ranged from gas taxes, transportation funding, students loans, to even transgender bathrooms. After everything was submitted, the results were put together by the Minnesota House of Representatives’ non-partisan Public Information Services. The department them published the finding online for the public to see.

According to the results, 86 percent of the fair-goers were in favor of requiring universal background checks for guns sales, more specifically during private sales as well as during gun shows. The official result shows that 5,556 people answered “Yes” to the question of requiring the check. 739 of them answered “No” while 150 had checked the “Undecided” option.

The survey itself is of course not a credible basis for the overall opinion of the state and neither is it a scientific one. However, the overwhelming amount of people in favor for universal background checks still bears its weight on the overall issue. Rep. Dan Schoen, who submitted a bill to close the “gun show loophole,” had mentioned that the Republican-controlled House and rural Democrats are still resistant to his proposal, but he believes that “public opinion is overwhelmingly behind such a bill.”

As of the moment, criminal background checks are only being required for gun purchases made through federally licensed gun dealers. A report from the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence however, reveals that these types of purchases only account for just 60 percent of all guns that are sold in the country.
