Widespread Ignorance: Americans Wrongly Believe Most Gun Deaths in US Are Homicides a

Posted: 10.11.19 09:48 AM

On some level, can you blame average people for getting the facts so wrong? *In light of the news media's ugly blend of profound bias and almost proud ignorance on gun issues, it's entirely unsurprising that the public is deeply misinformed on the subject. *The latest case in point is a fresh survey in which Americans badly miss the mark in estimating the top causes of gun-related deaths. *Voters vastly overestimate the prevalence and toll of homicides and (especially) mass shootings, while sharply underestimating suicides.
