Katie Couric said a majority of gun owners in America support a “common ground approach” to gun control.
During an interview about her documentary “Under the Gun” — which examines “both sides” of the gun debate — she said “couldn’t understand the disconnect.”
“Ninety percent of the public really favors universal background checks,” Couric said. “And after Sandy Hook, everyone thought this was a watershed moment — that something would be done. And then when Manchin/Toomey died in the Senate, I couldn’t understand the disconnect between public opinion and our elected officials.”
“The NRA only represents five percent of gun owners, so there’s this huge silent majority, and I think that’s really hopeful because there’s a lot of common ground.”
