No one knows exactly how many gun owners there are in the United States (many maintain operational security). Bemoaning the lack of gun registration, cnn.com tackled the gun ownership question back in February, and came up with the following stats . . .
High quality telephone polls from Gallup and the Pew Research Center in 2017 found that 42% of people in the US live in households with guns. According to the General Social Survey, which has a much higher response rate than telephone polls and interviews people in person, a relatively lower 32% of Americans said in 2016 that they lived in household with guns.
So yes, gun owners are a minority.
Are we being persecuted? If so, why aren’t gun owners facing increasing regulation and demonization mounting the same kind of the protests and civil disobedience that helped end racial segregation? [NB: the above image is a real thing. Click here to learn more.]
