After the movie theater  massacre in Aurora, Colorado, and a deadly shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Americans are divided on gun control, and within certain religious groups, attitudes are far from ambivalent.

But on the question of guns in churches, there is actual consensus: A strong majority of Americans don’t want them in the pews, according to a new poll released Wednesday (August 15, 2012) by the Public Religion Research Institute, conducted in partnership with Religion News Service.
