|I heard a stat that the number of guns is up but the number of households with a gun is down to about 37 %. Those who already have guns are gunning up, not bringing new into the fold.|
I don't know if I totally buy that. I know people who never had a gun who are buying now. And in the news they were saying that in the areas around New Town alone, new gun ownership sales were up around 50% after the shootings. It might not be up a lot, but Id bet its up. But polls and media is for propaganda, and if the Gov wants the people to perceive that things are swaying more anti gun , then that is what the polls and media will tell us.
Just this morning on NPR news they were saying that there is a higher percentage of anti gun - pro illegal immigration people than ever in America. I just cant buy that either. But, I could be wrong.
