TALLAHASSEE, FLA. -- A new survey from Quinnipiac University shows Florida really is the gunshine state.
Despite the controversy over the shooting of Trayvon Martin, pollster Peter Brown says they found solid support for the controversial "stand your ground" gun law.
"A solid majority of Floridians think it's a good idea, although there's tremendous partisan splits on that issue," he said.
More than 70 percent of the republicans surveyed approved of the law, as did more then 50 percent of the independents they surveyed. Democrats scraped up a 32 percent support showing.
There was also a gender gap. Men were mostly in support of 'stand your ground' and in opposition to any changes in gun laws.
Women, however, tended to poll to the opposite of the guys.
The survey also shows most Floridians are against any new gun control laws, with Floridians opposed, by a wide majority, to any form of gun control.
The only exception is the law that allows concealed weapons in the state capitol. More than 80 percent of the people in this survey think that's a bad idea.
