Guess What Twice as Many Americans Are Saying About Guns Now as Compared to 10 Years Ago
by Zach Noble
“Having a gun in the house — safer or more dangerous?”
If you asked Americans that question 10 years ago, the majority would have answered, “More dangerous,” but in 2014, the tables have turned.
According to a Gallup poll released Friday, nearly two-thirds of Americans say that having a gun makes a home safer — almost twice the percentage that said guns made homes safer in the year 2000.
Why do you suppose this might be?
I have a very specific idea, myself.
Please weigh in.
