For the first time in more than two decades of Pew Research Center surveys, there is more support for gun rights than gun control. Currently, 52% say it is more important to protect the right of Americans to own guns, while 46% say it is more important to control gun ownership.Pavlich also notes that:
One of the most important numbers from the survey shows that five percent more women support protecting rights over gun control than they did just two years ago. Women are also the fasted growing demographic of gun owners in America.I have long advocated in the blog that women should be armed, because women are often viewed by the predators of this world as soft targets. I seriously doubt that, with only one or two readers a day, that I have had any influence over this happy change of fortunes, but I am glad to see it. It means when my grand daughter comes of age, perhaps she will carry a gun for personal protection, and not be bullied by peer pressure into believing lies of the anti-gunners.
