Pew poll on guns
 
Here are a lot of numbers to look at. One thing that stood out was that gun ownership by women increased with age. That seems like an important trend.

Good find, one thing bothers me though. I have a hard time believing that 81% want UBCs. Or 90% as the Dummy in Chief says. I didn't see how many people were polled either, was it listed?

After you get raped a few times, you probably realize all the sunshine and roses stuff you were taught as a girl is pure BS and you have to be willing to kill for yourself if there is not a man there to do it for you.

There aren't many houses in Texas without guns in them. Most people would probably not admit to it over the internet, in a poll, or to the government, but most people I know have guns. Whether they know how to use them or not is a different story, but they have them just the same.

Pew is known to slant polls by interviewing more Dem's than Rep's , they to often just use city margins as representative of the U.S as a hole in polling.

I know we've kind of gone down hill lately but shouldn't that read WHOLE not HOLE. :D Like asking: What do you think of women as a hole vs. What do you think of women as a whole. Totally different meaning. :D

That poll reminds me of a Western parody. Three coyotes and lamb set around voting on what they would have for supper. :eek: Now you have to know how that Poll is going to turn out. The Pew Poll allows the coyotes to win over the lambs as well. :(

Thanks for posting this study. I had no idea that the issue was so closely divided. I really thought that the "guns first" group was larger.
