The article focuses on where Americans stand in the issue of gun control. According to the author, the country is divided almost in the middle in terms of gun control issues. She reports that a Pew Research Center survey showed that opposition to gun control is huge among white men. Among minority voters and college-educated white women, big percentages consider controlling gun ownership as more important than protecting gun rights. She adds that Democrats have shied away from the issue since it has been partly blamed for their demise in 1994.
