Surprise: Gun ownership rises to 44% of all homes

by Paul Bedard | Washingon Examiner  |  published on August 29, 2016


After a steady decline in gun ownership in recent years, more homes are reporting having a weapon inside, according to a new survey.

Pew Research Center, in a poll on guns released Friday, showed that 44 percent of the country has a gun in the house. Some 51 percent don’t.

The survey firm didn’t break those numbers out for special attention in reviewing American attitudes about background checks, an assault weapon ban or other gun issues, but it shows a jump in ownership from the mid-30 percent found in other recent polls.

    Closer it gets to the elections more the guns. More the guns in hiding and more the people prepared.

    I love the ratings here, it’s way off, 70% of the homes now have weapons and the sell of weapons have steadily increased for 5 years, and could be why the system wants Hellary for Prez., they know she’ll hit the wrong button! She wants America like Europe with muslims, after a few DEMS heads roll they’ll wished they had been for guns instead of safe places!

        Yes I will listen, I seen on the net a while back when a child prostitution ring was broken up that involved several so called elite congressmen and other wealthy perverts, and one being Billy-Bob Clinton! Remember the guy from England with Royal ties got caught in the same ring, but like everything else that involves these he$$ bound Gods it went quiet!
