Or perhaps the graph above is faulty based on sample size. I was trying to quickly find the sample size.... What I found QUICKLY was on Wikipedia, so take that with a grain of salt.... But per wiki, there's only been 55,087 respondents from 1994 to 2010. IF TRUE, that is a miniscule sample size.Here is some good news, although the total number of guns in the US has gone up, the actual number of gun owners has gone way down!
What has happened is that fewer people own more guns. Not only that but the average age of gun owner is goining up quickly, and we know who they are.
It seems that when they are not yelling at chairs, they are playing with their guns. Yes, by far the majority of guns are owned by Red State, Conservative, "Old white guys", and they own lot of guns!
When ever we have a another mass gun slaughter, we hear that gun sales have gone up, that scary until we find out that its mostly folks who aleardy have guns, just buying more!
It seems that the "Gun Culture", like Consevatives are slowly dying off! This bodes well for our kids and our future.
Now, if someone asks me in a survey (with my name and address disclosed) if I own guns.... My answer is ...nope. And I know that I am not the only gun owner who would respond the same way.
