    Gun Ownership Declining

    I don't know, but something just seems a little "off" about their results. Perhaps many participants were less than truthful?
    The number of Americans who live in a household with at least one gun is lower than it's ever been, according to a major American trend survey...

    The 2014 poll finds that 22 percent of Americans own a firearm, down from a high of 31 percent who said so in 1985.

    The people polled may not want anyone to know they own firearms.. The less the government knows, the less of a chance of confiscation....

          And they really think a smart gun owner is going to answer their stupid poll, and I have a bridge to sell too.

              I had guns. Now they are all ghosts.

                We're also supposed to believe that inflation is low, employment is high, everyone can afford health care, and the biggest threat to the world is hot weather.

                None of it passes the smell test.

                    The problem with this article is -the source. (ed. like almost always)

                    "The General Social Survey is administered by NORC at the University of Chicago, primarily using in-person interviewing."

                      The General Social Survey is conducted by NORC, an independent research organization based at the University of Chicago
                      That should explain some of it. Secondly the sample size was 2000 people. Anyone who knows anything about quantitative analysis knows it takes at least 10,000 examples to be considered minimally accurate. I hope the liberal anti-gun crowd believes the poll.

                          And how many Chicago gun owners are not legally allowed to own them, therefore said no.

                            Yep I am buying it.....a bunch of firearm owners have decided to get rid of all of them. And gun sales have been at record highs while folks are getting rid of what they own. I bet gun safe sales are also at a record high.

                              Yeah. Right. Gun sales records being smashed in the past several years with many of them "first time buyers." Of course gun ownership is declining.
