Despite Hillary’s Best Efforts, Most Support The PLCAA

posted on April 27, 2016

Hillary Clinton has made attacking the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) a cornerstone of her campaign, but a new study conducted by Harper Polling shows that the majority of Americans in every demographic group are seeing through the rhetoric. 

In mid-April, 1,000 registered voters were asked whether (1.) PLCAA should be kept, and only criminals—not law-abiding manufacturers or retailers—should be punished for crimes; or (2.) whether it should be repealed because it allows manufacturers and retailers to sell guns to prohibited persons without consequence. 

Overall, a total of 72 percent said they supported PLCAA, and this support held regardless of how the group was divided. Support was greatest among “Strong Republicans” (91 percent), but even among “Strong Democrats,” supporters of PLCAA edged out opponents (47-45). Interestingly, among those who voted for Obama in 2012, support for PLCAA was at 53 percent, and among non-gun owners, 56 percent favored keeping PLCAA in place.
