The Rutgers-Eagleton Poll out Thursday finds 73 percent of respondents back a proposal to require state enforcement agencies to report information on lost, stolen and discarded guns to federal databases.

Seventy percent support a measure that would require firearms purchase permits be recorded on driver licenses, create instant background checks, and mandate gun safety training. And 64 percent back a ban on .50-caliber rifles.

The poll also found 63 percent favor gun control over gun owners’ rights, while 31 percent side with gun owners.

The poll of 925 adults was conducted from Sept 3-9. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
