Guns Make Homes Safer

Category: Gun Stuff | Comments Off on Guns Make Homes Safer


From Reason Magazine / HIT & RUN Blog:

In 2014, reports Gallup, 63 percent of Americans consider having guns at home to make them safer, compared to 35 percent in 2000. Only 30 percent say that makes their homes more dangerous, down from 51 percent in 2000. Republicans have seen the greatest increase in support for the idea that guns make you safer, from 44 percent to 81 percent. But Independents increased their support for that idea from 35 percent to 64 percent. Democratic support rose from 28 percent to 41 percent.

Gun controllers may win an occasional ballot box victory imposing some restrictions on gun ownership, but Americans’ opinions of what constitute “responsible solutions” when it comes to firearms aren’t moving in their direction.

Seems about right to me – except for the 30% that got their answer wrong.
