|Coloradoans Favor Closing Loopholes
A Denver Post/9 News/KOA poll conducted by Ciruli Associates shows that 83 percent of Colorado voters support background checks for gun purchases at gun shows. Pollster Floyd Ciruli said "Coloradans are not anti-gun; rather they pro-closing loopholes to illegal gun ownershipespecially in the aftermath of the Columbine High School slayings. The public is willing to accept some restrictions, but will not support what they consider to be onerous limits to gun ownership."
Gov. Bill Owens has pledged to support gun-control groups' efforts to put the gun-show measure on the ballot. The poll was conducted in March 2000 with 600 likely voters. The margin of error is +/- 4 percent.
