Guns in the homes of Americans
 
Don't know if this is old or new news but I just read a study by Rand Corporation on gun ownership in America ranked by state and percent of guns owned per household. New Jersey and Massachusetts were tied for last at 14.7% of homes with guns. Montana was first with 66.7% of homes with guns. Interestingly, Texas is about the middle with 45.7%. I guess thanks to Rand Corporation the Feds now know where all the guns are!!

I seem to remember that NH was ranked quite low. We all got them up here we just don't talk about it. A lot of stats are based on % of CCL's. Up here we now have constitutional carry but even before that our shall issue permits are local so the only way to find out how many are issued is to ask every police department in the state as there is not state registry except for nonresident permits. Not sure the Chiefs would even respond to such a request.

I think some are judged by NICS requests. I only know a few of my friends or relatives that don't or may not own firearms, some I am sure of, some not so much.

Found this article this morning, kind of fits.:

It's a real shame that so many people have lost guns in boating accidents.........:roll:

I keep hearing Texas is heading more to the left so wonder if that’s part of why their guns ownerships are dropping? No facts just questioning if this is a reason

Must be Austin.

I know there is a lot of people fleeing CA to TX and the left wants you to believe they are swaying Texas to the left but other than isolated spots TX is as red as it ever was.

Texas without guns is like a fish with no water......

They show around 3/4 of a million guns in Texas. But, there is a lot more than that, since there is no registration in Texas. No tellin how many have been handed down to family members.

I remember reading a report a few years ago, where they reckoned a 3 gun per Texan average.

Even in Blue states like mine, NY. It's blue in the big cities, so they out vote us. Otherwise, NY north of NYC is very red, and full of outdoor gun owning people. Gun and ammo sales have been crazy here too.
Like polling, I think gun ownership is under represented, everywhere.

That's some pretty country up there.
I spent a couple of Summers in Glens Falls. One year I remodeled my buddy's house, and the next the year the exterior of his Business.

My dad worked construction so spent 2 years living in South Glens Fall, 6th and 7th grade. As I recall he was working on the Northway I87at the time. After that we moved to NH and grew roots.
