"Almost one-third of U.S. households report having any guns in the home -- the lowest level ever since the survey began in the 1970s, a survey indicates. The report by the Violence Policy Center is an analysis of data from the General Social Survey conducted by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. The report says household gun ownership peaked in 1977, with 54 percent of households reported having any guns. However, by 2010 household gun ownership dropped to 32.3 percent of U.S. households reporting having any guns in the home -- the lowest level ever recorded by the General Social Survey.."

  • Don't be depressed. This survey is very unlikely to be anything like correct, for a couple of reasons:

    1: The VPC has yet to flinch at using statistics and misleading polls for its own use. They routinely lie about such things and always have.

    2: If anybody presented me with one of these dumbass surveys, I'd casually lie through my teeth. Guns? What's a gun?

  • Indeed, Joel. I guess all those millions of guns Americans bought in the last few years were presents for the folks in Iceland or somewhere else… Nah… I think a lot of gun owners – old and new – are simply not interested in talking about it, especially to an insane outfit that's trying to disarm them!!!
