It’s utterly false to say 90% of Americans want more gun control

  • Published in Letters

To the Daily Sun,

This is in response to Bernadette Loesch's letter of April 17 on gun control. Ms. Loesch states that almost 90 percent Americans want more gun control.

I am curious as to where Ms. Loesch got her statistics since Pew Research indicates that Americans are closely divided on the issue of gun control, with 49 percent in favor of gun rights vs. 50 percent in favor of gun control. Note that this survey was taken five months after Newtown.

It is true that politicians are sharply divided along party lines on this issue. But to say that 90 percent of Americans want more gun control is utterly false.

Please research your statistics for the sake of your credibility.
