When something makes you smile.
According to Gallup, 40% of American households have guns. That number has been right around the 40% mark for about a decade with occasional shifts up and down. Those numbers are, of course, dependent on people actually answering when a stranger tries to find out if they own guns (so the actual number is likely more than 40%).
According to the ASPCA there are approximately 85.8 million pet cats in the United States and about 35% of American households own at least one cat. That’s a lot of murder kittehs running around.
Okay, bear with me.
Also according to the ASPCA and whatever statistic-gathering techniques they use, there are something like 78 million pet dogs in the United States (come on, you’re telling me there are more cats than dogs?). They also state that around 44% of American households have dogs.
So what I got out of this is, gun owners have good taste because more Americans households own dogs than cats. I suppose the day you can train cats to retrieve birds and flush pheasants, cat ownership might increase. Then again, there’s nothing quite like the loyal lapdog habits of a 90-pound Lab.
Go team dog! Oh, and guns, too. How about you guys? Team dog or team cat? (Because of course you own guns, right?)
