In Sandy Hook Debate over Gun Control vs. Mental Health, Evangelicals Diverge from Rest of Nationposted on December 20, 2012
Jeremy Weber at Christianity Today examines the divided responses among religious groups to the problems presented by last week’s shootings in Connecticut. Weber writes that “two main subjects have emerged: better gun control vs. better treatment of mental illness.” While more than 40 percent of minority Christians support stricter gun control, Weber reports that only 8 percent of white evangelical Protestants believe that new gun laws are necessary.
