There is nothing to indicate that a non-gun household would be any larger, or smaller than a household with guns. Thus, if all households (gun and non-gun holder) are about the same size, and each household has 4 guns; this does not work out anywhere near 90% of the population having a gun.
The numbers are wildly different than what the author is alledging. I submit that the true number of guns per American is somewhere between 38 and 90%; probably close to the 60-75% range.

( Who needs laws; when this FEELS so right?)
The author is only using the only figures that are available. As many have pointed out, many folk will refuse to tell pollsters how many guns they have, or even whether they have any at all. Anyway, there may very well be more than four guns per household. The simple fact is we really dont know, and frankly, if you want to keep the government honest, perhaps that's the way it should be.
For what its worth, I think your ball park figure is probably more accurate.
