Gun Ownership Soars To 18 Year High: 47% Of Americans Admit To Owning A Gun

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Americans may be fleeing from stocks in droves, but they sure aren't shy about rotating the resulting meager liquidation proceeds into weaponry. According to Gallup, "Forty-seven percent of American adults currently report that they have a gun in their home or elsewhere on their property. This is up from 41% a year ago and is the highest Gallup has recorded since 1993, albeit marginally above the 44% and 45% highs seen during that period." Considering the social situation "out there", and the fact that the world is one badly phrased or translated headline away from a complete HFT-facilitated market collapse, this is hardly all that suprising.

U.S. Gun Households, 1991-2011More:

The new result comes from Gallup's Oct. 6-9 Crime poll, which also finds public support for personal gun rights at a high-water mark. Given this, the latest increase in self-reported gun ownership could reflect a change in Americans' comfort with publicly stating that they have a gun as much as it reflects a real uptick in gun ownership.

Not surprisingly, republicans pack more heat than democrats. Perhaps it is best not to piss too many off...

Republicans (including independents who lean Republican) are more likely than Democrats (including Democratic leaners) to say they have a gun in their household: 55% to 40%. While sizable, this partisan gap is narrower than that seen in recent years, as Democrats' self-reported gun ownership spiked to 40% this year.

2002-2011 Trend: Gun in Household, by Party ID

Women are more armed than ever. Perhaps it is best not to piss too many off...

The percentage of women who report household gun ownership is also at a new high, now registering 43%

2002-2011 Trend: Gun in Household, by Gender

Southerners, yes shocking, are the best armed of all. Perhaps it is best not to piss too many off...

Gun ownership is more common in the South (54%) and Midwest (51%) than in the East (36%) or West (43%) -- a finding typical of Gallup's trends in gun ownership by region.

2002-2011 Trend: Gun in Household, by Region

Gallup's conclusion: "A clear societal change took place regarding gun ownership in the early 1990s, when the percentage of Americans saying there was a gun in their home or on their property dropped from the low to mid-50s into the low to mid-40s and remained at that level for the next 15 years. Whether this reflected a true decline in gun ownership or a cultural shift in Americans' willingness to say they had guns is unclear. However, the new data suggest that attitudes may again be changing. At 47%, reported gun ownership is the highest it has been in nearly two decades -- a finding that may be related to Americans' dampened support for gun-control laws. However, to ensure that this year's increase reflects a meaningful rebound in reported gun ownership, it will be important to see whether the uptick continues in future polling."

Our conclusion: Buy gold. Buy guns. Buy ammo. Be prepared. It's coming.

Big deal. They don't seem to be capable of using them when needed... what's actually needed for citizens to use the arms they have the constitional right to bear? Obumma to go to their house and personally stamp on their faces?

A gun to an american is nothing more than a glorified beer can opener.

The left created the inner city time bombs. Until leftists figured out they could retain more power by playing nursemaid to blacks, the standard of living of black Americans was rising faster than that of whites. 50 years later there are millions of young blacks that have zero prospects. As soon as order breaks down they're gonna go nuts, and then the leftists will round them up for the camps. Good job. Leftists are filled with such loathing for themselves and the rest of humanity that they literally kill off societies - see Europe, 2011. That whole mess is a leftist construct, top to bottom. Control freaks tell Europeans how much their cucumbers can bend - literally. Almost all of the debt in the world can be laid right in the lap of the left - starting with traitor Wilson, and straight through to their hater hero, President Puke. We're broker than broke and the leftists in congress want to tax you for breathing. Get it straight: the left-right divide doesn't mean there aren't real philosophical differences, it means that the system ameliorates them and guarantees a steady slide into socialism and bankruptcy. There is not a shred of salvation in more socialism. If the left had any credibility at all, they'd retool, and become the party that defends the truly needy from severe austerity, and makes it easier for the rest of us to make our way. NOPE. They want more cash to piss away buying votes, and they want to lard us down with even more regulations, when we're flat on our back. A caring system would relinquish some control. That is not in the left's toolbox.

It's not in the right's, either.  Control is the reason for the economic mailaise; the system's solution was ever-higher leverage.  In order to reignite, the system must relinquish control, and it is incapable of doing so.  Control, it seems, must be wrested.

You could always try berating them with insults from the moral highground of your ivory tower as you summon the unsophisticated troglodites with badges to come to your rescue.

For everyone else I recommend a Springfield XDM 45 with nite sites and 13 golden sabers on board.

Springfield is a good manufacturer, but the .45 acp leaves much to be desired. I know a bunch of macho men claim the 45 is superior, but the terminal ballistics of the caliber speak otherwise. 10mm and .357 auto are much better for imparting hydrostatic shock on the target, many manufacturers chamber both calibers. The new 5.7mm is a proven armor piercer, but only FN chambers it at the moment(and its fugly).

The secret service packs .357 auto, so that seems to be the caliber of choice when quick, concealable, controllable stopping power is of the utmost importance.

It's only 47% that admit to it.

Of the other 53%, 15% are felons or domestic violence accusees, and can't "legally" own.

Of the remaining 38%, 15% live in cities that frown on protecting yourself, and 5% believe the police are actually required to protect you, 10% actually own.

Of the remaining 23%, 20% support the president and will protect their family with the wife's 12" black rubber tube-snake, and the 3% are on communes and can't respond....

SOMETHING YOU MAY NOT KNOW THAT IS HAPPENING

Subject: Who is buying companies manufacturing guns????????????

For the last several years a company called The Freedom Group has been buying up gun and ammunition manufacturers.Some of the companies are Bushmaster, Marlin, Remington, DPMS, Dakota Arms and H&R. Some people worry
that this Freedom Group is going to control most of the firearms companies in the United States.

If you control the manufacturers you can decide to stop selling to civilians. What a perfect way to control guns. Now if you do some digging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a company called Cerberus Capital Management.

Guess who controls Cerberus??? GEORGE SOROS !!!!!!!!!

Not to discredit the original Soros assertion, but here is Wiki tidbits: Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. is one of the largest private equity investment firms in the United States. The firm is based in New York City, and run by 51-year-old financier Steve Feinberg. Former U.S. Vice President Dan Quayle has been a prominent Cerberus spokesperson and runs one of its international units. On October 19, 2006, John W. Snow, President George W. Bush's second Treasury Secretary, was named chairman of Cerberus. J. Ezra Merkin is a partner in Cerberus. Merkin invested his funds into Cerberus and its portfolio companies. His Gabriel fund invested $79 million in Chrysler, $66 million in GMAC and $67 million in Cerberus partnerships, according to year-end statements.[2] The Gabriel Fund was a feeder fund for Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC.[3]
The Japanese bank, Aozora, a Cerberus company lost $137 million to Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC. Aozora was part of the investment group that acquired 51 percent of GMAC from General Motors. [4]
On April 12, 2010 Cerberus acquired the private military contractor DynCorp International.
It's that last aquisition that should be grabbing your attention, but yes seems like a run of the mill neo-con/israeli axis, which i'm sure could accomodate Soros somewhere in there if needed. In truth, it's the Carlyle Group that is the axis of power for the Bush family, and Carlyle is quite powerful. I wonder if Carlyle Group will buy Xe now to compete with Cerebus, or maybe they already own Wackenhut and KBR so they're covered.

Did a quick search and Remington (chosen at random) is indeed owned by Cerberus.  Sturm-Ruger, Mossberg, and Smith & Wesson as examples are still NOT owned by Cerberus.   As a capital mgmt co. Cerberus (the guardian dog at the gates of hell) still has to justify to their shareholders why/how they're going to make money w/these acquisitions.   Buying a company so as NOT to sell a product does not sound like a particularly sensible use of capital.  And capital has a nasty habit of fleeing from those who abuse it.

Moreover, even if firearms production were completely halted tomorrow, there would still be millions of weapons in the hands of ordinary citizens, the vast majority of whom know how to use them well.  It would be more than passing ironic, therefore, if those weapons were ...

 I am indicative of this trend.  In late 2008, I acquired an AR-15, since with TAC-16 suppressor and a PrimaryArms micro red-dot mounted at 1 O'Clock by Daniel Defense (very comfortable).  +Glock 20.  An AR-15 in .308 as backup, but strengths are useless with our trees.  Enough amo to hold out a while.  It was SHTF planning that caused me to arm up and take some tactical pistol and riffle training with Tom Perroni in Fredricksburg VA.

"It's terrible to go over to Iraq twice and come back injured, and then get injured by the police that are supposed to be protecting us," he said.  He said Olsen had served two tours of Iraq, in 2006 and 2007. Olsen was in 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines with Shannon before leaving the military in 2010.  He moved to the San Francisco area in July and works for Opswat, a software company, living with Shannon in Daly City, just south of San Francisco."

i'm betting you have some nice knives :). 

i'll say this, the swatskia is deliberately provocative to jews. it is a sign people use , not of solidarity with nationalist socialism, ---which as an american i support to an extent that it is used to support ending the fed , auctioning the liquidated banks to the states to start 50 separate state owned banks----BUT---

the swatskia is about world war ii and racism. it is a sign of proud ignorance and proud anger and willingness to use violence against anyone different, hitler killed just about ANYONE who wasn't on his bandwagon, and even the people that were, hitler amazing, killed all but one of the ten or so people that were instrumental to his rise to power----

he was an amazing person, but someone not to be proudly imitated. i'm a jew, i survived because my grandfathers worked in coal mines and labor camps designed to exterminate them. i'm not going to say i don't have issues with the behavior of all bnakers, and jewish bankers, and all lobbying firms for defense contractors, and aipac, and the oil companies and...the list goes on, but as someone that would like to see a genuine nationalistic , american centered , change to the power strucutre of the u.s. ( at the expense of new york)----as well as a socialistic change---not towards the ends of communism and more state control but towards the ends of a free capitalist society where the government genuinely pursues THE fundamental role of defending americans by enforcing anti-trust rules and anti-institutionalist rules which favor competition at the small business and individual level of ALL of society ( this is one way of defining socialism--albeit one which will be considered foreign to most people who have already pidgeonholed the term [admittedly you can say i'm not really a 'socialist' socialist. i just don't believe anarchy does anything but foster monopolism and oligarchism)

 

as one of these people who wants nationalist socialist change , rather than hitler style racist genocidal fascism -----

i usually ignore people like you since all you guys do is talk , but then, i realize you are part of the people who are preventing the masses from getting on board the enlighted train of real nationalism and socialism policy.

when i see this, sometimes i think that maybe, there is no reasonable road to non-racist nationalist socialism, because down deep there is a part of me that realizes most people are sheeple and are easily fed the racist or 'anti' racist line that you yourself create by shouting yoru foolish slogan. then i get sad and i think america is truly doomed to do nothing about the oncoming oligarchry or that if anything is done, it will actually result in simple facism--the same facism you want. 

there is a reason that it is not just globalists who are leaving america, but there are those among us who feel it would be better to enjoy life out of this country as it enters a death spiral based on stupidity of people like you and those reacting to you----in the face of unfettered globalist greed---- for the next 20 years.

good luck to you my american nazi. good luck in learning a better path. perhaps you'll read this and be curious enough to read about history and why the present situaiton you are in is not wwii nazi germany. but if you don't read, maybe start with waching the movie american history x. and you realize that the false illusion of racism is a too of division perpetrated by those who worship only one color, green....and those people are all races, colors and creeds and religions, but the only idol they all worship is money.

Your political philosophies confuse me, counselor.  Let me just say that it is likely that many German Jews in the 20s were also looking for national socialist change to save them from the scourge of communism, oligarchism, whatever &cetera.  Be careful letting that genie out of the bottle.  That said, exactly how much more "national socialism" would you like in the USA before you were satisfied?  We are already living in a mirror of Mussonini's Italy minus a Duce and a king...

i dunno about mussolinin i'm not that old. but look.........

 

i think nationalism ( the end of outsourcing the u.s. labor pool ) and socialism ( the flat out nationalization and liquidation of the fed to a broken up set of state bank entities prohibited by state law from acquiring interests in each other , not to mention other anti-trust and anti-intellectual property abuse and anti-legal duopolism ( the cabal of the plaintiff and defense bar grotesquley disfiguring justice in the courts by increasing the time and cost of litigation ) , and many other exmaples of financial extraction all ALL of them entrenched by way of a money system that allows the unregulated use of money to buy politicians....

 

there are SO MANY policies here. and so many obvious things that need to be done to stop the u.s. from being extracted by trade,  money in politics, and unfettered institutionalism supported by government . 

 

it's pretty simple how these policies can be considered nationlist, and some of them socialist, but above all they favor the rights and justice TO THE INDIVIDUAL  over both institutional and governmental interests. 

so i'm not saying 'tax the rich' or 'privatize all government services other than police and military' or ....other gross simplifications 

 

there is a policy platform and it includes the correct policies for american citizens and their families. it may leave out some reforms that woudl be tough to agree on, but it owuld include all those policies it would be EASY  to agree upon. 

 

and frankly, i'd be happy converting to christianity if it would further this cause. jesus was the original rebel. i already love the guy. i'm not ashamed of judaism , but i'm not loyal to the labels and i'm not entrenched in a jewish community. also, the idea of americans belonging to any uniform christian culture, let alone actual sect, is clearly ridiculous. i'm calling for a walk back to american puritanical and quaker ethics. the kind of christian hard working and spartan culture this country was founded upon. 

not the crappy smartphone cultsumerism in which the u.s. has burried itself within. 

 

personally, i don't think there is any hope for the u.s. until a major collapse of the economy results in some sort of food crisis. the elites are hoping that welfare programs can feed the growing amounts of food insecure families indefinitley , but these programs too will go broke as commoditiy prices rise. 

 

so we'll see. it'll be at least 10 years i think.

I understand your sentiment. Watching this makes me angry too. I've seen same things happening over here. But I don't agree with you. There are still nice and good people working for the police. That was certainly not one of them and I hope this will be investigated (Unfortunately, if you're system is broken than even an investigation will end without a result. (happened here))

Whether you are in favour or not of this OWS movement (as a true German I'd say that is not my beer (not my affair)): Let's hope he gets better. He served his country two times, he has a job, he is out there to voice his opinion peacefully. Nobody has the right to harm him in that way (and somebody must have targeted very low to hit him - and then again, when he was lying on the ground and people tried to help him - just sick.).

Again, not all police men are alike. Some of them are disgusted to see such shit too. It's not an easy job.

There will BE NO INVESTIGATION on this.  The cops here kill with impunity and the protestors continue with their Gandhi bullshit about "occupying" things.  Their silly stupid dipshit liberal world is going to be upended violently.

THIS is why protesting is useless.  Protesting only gets results when there is violence.  The police will round up the entire OWS mass and beat the fuck out of them.  This is why I wouldn't join an OWS protest.  Nobody has your back.  Nobody will lift a finger, nobody will FIGHT.  They have no clue.  Only if/when the cops have any fear will protests be respected.

They did what they were ordered (yes I'm aware of the reference). However, no cop, in any state, is going to jeopardize their career over OWS protestors. Now, if they were ordered to use real bullets, new ball game. Do I think it sucks, as a former police officer, yes. I don't agree with everything OWS stands for, but I do agree their First Amendment right to Assemble and Speech should not be infringed upon. 

Here in Boston people are complaining it costs so much to have cops on details. Well, stop paying fifty-fucking-bucks and hour to stand there and watch them. They aren't violent here, they sure as shit don't need 20 cops (although I know the reason they do it), but it's a passive crowd here. Doubtful the group here has even handle a slingshot, let alone a firearm. The police presence here in BOston just isn't warranted.

Can't argue that. We just had a grandfather "accidently" killed in his own fucking home, in his own fucking chair, because someone "tripped". OK. The Blue Wall is alive and well, and it isn't breaking anytime soon, I lived it, and unless you have an army of well trained people of your own, no one is doing shit. We're well armed and train constantly, so any of you fat fucking yahoo's think having an AR means anything, with zero tactical training and/or combat experience, good luck lol.

Public record (happened in Framingham MA), old (unfortunate) news. DA didn't press charges and the investigation is now CLOSED.

Red flags are raised all over the place for the simple engage/not engaged scenario. Who the fuck has their finger on the trigger when not engaged? Not me, never trained that way (military AND law enforcement), and sure as fuck don't know anyone who is/was. If you "trip" and NOT engaged, it is impossible for your firearm to discharge even with the safety off. Complete fucking whitewash.

Yeah, that "Cops are better-trained badasses than Joe Sixpack" jive cops jack off to is, up to a point, true and semi-effective. Up to a point.

Up tho this point: when the bullets start flying, cops are pussies. What'd they do at Columbine? Why, the same thing they did at Virginia Tech: they took cover (that means they hid behind trees) and cowered like little bitches until they were sure the bad guy(s) was/were dead. At Columbine, kids trying to save a dying teacher in a secure classroom hung a sheet out the window saying, "Help - Man dying!". The cops, "suspecting a trap", stayed safely hidden. "Officer Safety", you understand. No reason they couldn't 'Protect and Serve' while staying safely ducked behind a boulder, right? Anyways, fuck that dying teacher! It's not like he was a COP, for God's sake! It's not like he *mattered*! When they were at last *finally* reassured the bad guys had offed him/themsleves, THEN, and ONLY then, did they storm in, guns drawn, using those manly 'command' voices, to traumatize the unarmed survivors and innocent bystanders.

To a cop, NOTHING is more important than going home at the end of the shift and counting the cash in this week's graft envelope, and calculating his pension. If they're ordered into 'battle' with pissed-off, well-armed people who don't give a shit about their shiny tin badges anymore, (or any other scary assignment that might cause them to get a scratch or a boo-boo), they'll run like the candyass twats they are. See: New Orleans, during Katrina. Half the force made like King Arthur, ("Run away! Run away!!"), and - apparently - the other half went around town bravely gunning down unarmed citizens daring to walk on a bridge while a cop was in the area. .

So good luck, "officers". We're well aware you'll cheerfully use live ammo on unarmed protesters if ordered to do so - hell, it happens every day in SWAT raids, and we couldn't expect 'em to risk their sacred PENSIONS by refusing an ORDER - and last I checked, body armor don't cover knees, femoral arteries, or necks. And rifle fire cuts through it like a hot knife through butter. So don't start any long comic books, fellas, ok? LOL

Yeah.  Trouble is, he's right.  Much easier to shoot some lone prick in your home, than take on the bankers and their police state.  So that's what we do.

All this shit about AR's and Glocks is empty posturing because an individual just CAN'T fight the state.  It's just throwing away your life.  Only a large organized group can do that.  100 SWAT raids per day in the US.  Try a day or two of tactical training and you handgun against that.  You won't get too far.  And do you think the state will ever let things get out of control enough for large organized groups to form?  It won't; if things do get that far out of hand, it will be because the state has collapsed, and there won't be a state to fight.

That doesn't mean I don't value lead.  But a bit larger caliber than most of you are talking about.

"So, you use a gun on an opportunist thief entering your house to steal a few $hundred to feed a drug habit or simply to buy food... but, when a handful of bankers clearly steal $thousand from you, your family, your children and your children's children in plain sight with the backing of the government, you use this mythical thing called law to get justice?

... so, how's that law thing working out for ya at present? Having a good success rate there? 'Cause i'm not seeing many bankers/policians in jail over the past 3 years.

... maybe, american's should have used 'the law' against the king of england, would've saved a lot of bloodshed i guess"

 

Told ya, Funky's got it all figured out.  Ron Paul can be his running mate.

1. some thugs entering my house are directly and immediately threatening to me and my family. The result is the thug gets shot. 

2. Bankers are not threatening my life directly, nor the lives of my family. 

In situations like #2, where 911 is not required, you file a legal complaint and take them to court. Just beause we own guns, doesn't make us cowboys. 

3. Your last sentence is fucking hilarious and shows how devoid of historical facts you actually are.

that dude did shoot that congresswoman. However the problem with trying to kill an american is even if you shoot them temple to temple you'll be lucky to hit any brain, so no fatality...

And sadly, if the government tries to confiscate, most "law abiding" citizens will gladly turn in their firearms.

This is one of the things that convinces me that TPTB are not in control of events, and the current catastrophe-in-waiting is not part of their plan. I believe they would have preferred to disarm the US population before the SHTF.

dude,

disarming the us population is IMPOSSIBLE.  it just can't be done.  can you imagine gangsters turning over all of their unregistered guns to the government?  i can't.

Disarming the population is not about removing illegal guns, just the legal ones.

Ain't gonna happen without serious bloodshed. The guns that are out there in legal hands are there to stay. They could clamp down on the manufacturers but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Ferfuksakes....guns are damn near the only thing made in USA anymore....how pathetic is that?

 

I get the vibe sometimes that vast majority of ZH posters are from major urban centers....cause only city folks would even begin to believe that USG would attempt to seize legal guns....that shit aint happening out here in flyover.....Chicago don't count.

Its WildWildWest out here motherfuckers....more gun stores than churches....and that's saying something.

Who on earth would own a "legal" gun, except for police?

Defeats the purpose of the second amendment if you give the people you are protecting yourself against a detailed inventory of your defenses.

It literally takes less than 20 minutes to have a firearm in hand if you have cash and know where to go.

Appreciate the sentiment- you may have missed the point.  I've got respectable, reliable tools in my chest- I just don't hold with telling anyone but the people who live in my home where or how many they are.  You know the drill, I'm sure.
