HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- It looks like Connecticut voters support most gun-control measures including overwhelming support for universal background checks.
The latest Quinnipiac Poll shows 93-percent support background checks.
This includes 89-percent supporting the checks in households with guns.
54-percent of voters also support placing armed police officers in public schools.
"The big takeaway is from this is that Connecticut voters overwhelming support stricter gun-control laws when we ask that general questions. We found about 2/3 of Connecticut voters saying they support stricter gun-control laws," said Doug Schwartz, QU Poll.
