After doing a lot of research on this, let me tell you, it’s not that easy to find this stuff. It’s either shifted hard left, or hard right. But. We already know about 1/3 of Americans own a firearm. The loony far left will say well, that leaves 2/3 that don’t so we have the majority. That got me thinking. Well, I’m a gun owner, but have four people in my household. What I have found is as of 2016 about 44% of households admitted to owning firearms in the home, on the property, or in the car. 51% said no, with 5% not answering.
With this said, anyone without a gun has no reason to claim they do. While a home with a gun has a chance of saying no, we do not have a gun in the home. Finally, those who do not answer are most likely gun owners. In my opinion, this shifts the percentage of gun owning households 5%-10% towards owning. This places the majority of households as owning firearms. I believe this is a far more accurate measuring stick than overall gun owners. In the case of my home alone, one owner, four users.
Sorry gun control, but once again, you are wrong.
