About nine out of ten high school students support gun control measures such as criminal background checks and mandatory trigger locks, according to a survey of 1,005 students commissioned by a sociology professor and his students at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y. The same percentage of students said they favored requiring a safety course and a license to purchase a handgun and 89.6 percent supported registering the weapons when purchased so they could be traced if necessary, said Sociology Professor Dennis Gilbert, who designed the survey with his students.
