BOOM! Gun Owner Numbers SURGE and Other 2A News

July 31, 2023

Well, now, this is interesting! Recent reports about how many people actually own guns in the US indicate that there are an awful lot of folks who are classified as “quiet” gun owners – in other words, people that don’t want to admit that they own a gun.  It appears the number of gun owners is roughly DOUBLE what had been previously estimated – from 33% to a whopping 60%.

These closet gun owners need to come into the light – it is by growing our numbers that we can also grow in influence, and shut down those who want nothing more than to disarm us.  By continuing in silence, the attacks on our rights to protect our families and homes will continue – with each day that passes in indifference, the Left becomes more emboldened.

JOIN GOC TODAY TO BATTLE AGAINST THIS – and to reach those “quiet” gunowners!

If that weren’t enough interesting news, check out GOA’s Senior VP article about the problems of using polls to make policy. The anti-gun left says there is strong public support for universal background checks. It is the Holy Grail of gun control – BUT WAIT! In 2017, only twelve people were prosecuted for attempting to illegally purchase a firearm out of 25 million background checks, according to data from the United States Government Accountability Office. That translates to .00000048% usefulness in catching illegal buyers – mind blown! Read all about it below.
