Poll reveals majority of young people considering gun ownership

Despite experiencing a post-Columbine world, 60 percent of high school and college students are considering owning a gun in the future, according to a national poll.

One-third of young people reported growing up with a in the household and 36 percent reported being "very worried" about . However, nearly 40 percent of participants planned to own a gun when they have their own household, and an additional 20 percent were contemplating it.

"I think the major contribution of the is to demonstrate that now is certainly the time to have a serious conversation about gun control since the next generation is no less likely to plan to own guns," said AU professor Jennifer L. Lawless.

Lawless, director of AU's Women and Politics Institute, and Loyola Marymount University professor Richard L. Fox conducted the poll of 4,000 high school and college students.

The findings come at a time of high-level discussions surrounding new gun legislation by a House Democratic task force led by Vice President .

In the wake of the Dec. 14 elementary school shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn., President pledged to push Congress on legislation to prevent more .

Key findings from the poll of high school and college students:

  • About 50 percent of young people who self-identify as "depressed," "stressed out," and/or have "difficulty making friends" plan to have a gun in their household.
  • High school students who regularly play video games for more than 4 hours per day are 50 percent more likely than those who do not typically play video games to report plans to own a gun. The results are similar among college students.
  • Girls and young women (40 percent) are more likely than their male counterparts (32 percent) to fear gun violence and less likely to report planning to own a gun in the future.
  • Democrats are nearly twice as likely as Republicans to fear gun violence (45 percent compared to 25 percent) and less likely to report planning on owning a gun in the future.
  • Half of black respondents fear gun violence, compared to only 31 percent of white respondents. Blacks are less likely than whites to report planning on owning a gun in the future.
The results are based on a national sample of 2,100 college students (ages 18 through 25) and 2,166 (ages 13 through 17). The poll, conducted by American University / Gfk Custom Research LLC, was in the field from September 27—October 16, 2012, and has a margin of error of +/- 2.2 percentage points.

I can't see gun ownership as any more of a liberal/conservative issue than car ownership. Both require responsibility and training. The best way to use a gun is to manage your life so it never needs to leave the lockbox. Or live in a place like Victorville CA or Detroit for the cheap rent and takes your chances, but don't pretend that's a responsible decision

As I predicted with the Batman shooter, Obama is leading a UN sponsored effort to ban gun ownership worldwide. Nothing better than killing children to drive the point home. Of course the task was delegated to moll pumped up with psychotropic substances. The government just winds him up then lets him loose. Same trick the Sicilian mob devised centuries ago.

Consider the thousands of farm families in South Africa chopped to pieces simply because they were unarmed.

"Of course, we understand that "gun-free" zones often become killing zones. That is what happened in Rwanda in 1994, where the defenseless genocide victims were "gun free." That is what is happening today in Zimbabwe, where everyone except Robert Mugabe's criminal government and its allies is "gun free." That is what is happening right now in South Africa's impoverished townships, where robbers armed with government-supplied guns routinely murder their defenseless victims."

It's illegal to export firearms to Mexico. A US Marine was put in jail for many months for legally bringing an antique firearm to Mexico.

Holder allowed the firearms purchaser to avoid arrest. He did not export those weapons to Mexico.

Further, it is not illegal for him to have done so.

Data from across the USA shows that when the citizen's right to protect his property is not usurped by the state, there is less demand for 'state' 'services'.
State control of firearms is motivated by power. If the citizen can defend himself, can provide for himself and has little need for state, state's power is diminished. Therefore the state must do everything it can to make the citizen dependent upon it. The state must fascisticly control the economy, the state must limit the citizen's ability to protect himself, and the state must create propaganda and co-op the 'intellectuals' and media to their cause. Sounds just like the USA for the past 100 years.

"Two officers exchanged fire with one of the teenage gunmen just outside the school door, then stopped — as they had been trained to do — to wait for a specially trained elite police team. During the 45 minutes it took for the elite team to assemble and go in, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold shot 10 of the 13 people they killed that day.

The killers committed suicide around the time the makeshift elite team finally entered. But the elite officers took several hours more to secure the place, moving methodically from room by room. One of the wounded, teacher Dave Sanders, slowly bled to death."

Thanks Bill Clinton:

"Shouldn't an army base be the last place where a terrorist should be able to shoot at people uninterrupted for 10 minutes? After all, an army base is filled with soldiers who carry guns, right? Unfortunately, that is not the case. Beginning in March 1993, under the Clinton administration, the army forbids military personnel from carrying their own personal firearms and mandates that "a credible and specific threat against [Department of the Army] personnel [exist] in that region" before military personnel "may be authorized to carry firearms for personal protection."

"The law-abiding, not the criminals, are the ones who obey the ban on guns. Instead of making areas safe for victims, the bans make it safe for the criminal. Hasan not only violated the army's ban on carrying a gun, he also apparently violated the rules that require soldiers to register privately owned guns at the post.

Research shows that allowing individuals to defend themselves dramatically reduces the rates of multiple victim public shootings. Even if attacks still occur, having civilians with permitted concealed handguns limits the damage.

America's war on Murder has clearly failed.

The Libertarian/Randite solution is to legalize murder and let the free market naturally reduce the murder rate to the good oll days before murder was illegal.

Libertarian/Randite logic clearly holds that laws against murder actually cause criminal murder for without those laws, there would be no criminality to murder.

Through this means, the crime of murder would be finally eradicated.
