Much higher than any documented records will ever show or divulge.   If they use them appropriately, I don't care.   If they use them wrongly, they should be taken away and barred from having one again.   My husband is retired law enforcement, you can guess whether our home has one.

Many more than what is reported. There's a reason why our country has never been invaded and we'd like to keep it that way!

Declined for 4 decades to about 1 in 3, but spiked in the last few quarters to 41%. I suspect terrorism on our soil has been the major cause of the sudden increase...

My guess would be about half the people own them legally and then there are the other percentage that we will never know.  The times are a changin -- and it seems to be a hot topic these days.

It's a high percentage, a sad reflection of people's lack of trust in neighborhood security.

I'm sure it is higher than I want to think it is. I don't own a gun and never will. I see no need for it, since I live in an area which hasn't seen a murder since 1988.
