On Friday, The Times’ Seema Mehta reported that Californians are “overwhelmingly” in favor of a federal assault weapons ban (which died in the Senate this week lest it prevent other gun measures from passing), as well as background checks for all gun purchases, tougher penalties for crimes involving guns, and better ways of keeping guns from people with severe mental illness.

She also noted that Californians also favor state proposals that would prohibit the possession of large-capacity magazines, require background checks for purchasing ammunition and require all gun owners to be registered, licensed and insured.

It wasn’t just non-gun owners and liberals who embraced the stricter measures, the USC Dornsife/L.A. Times Poll found. California gun owners and conservatives also supported them.

First thing they taught us in Statistics class in Poli-Sci -- you can ALWAYS make the poll numbers reflect what you want. When you can't, just lie -- the goal is always more important than the truth. This is the message they want people to believe. Most conservative people and gun owners are at work when they make these poll calls.
