Over the last year, millions of Americans have become first time gun owners.
First the pandemic started a new wave of gun sales, then the left wing riots started and things really got going.
There were incidents around the country where people realized that they could not rely on the police for protection.
Now a new poll shows that gun ownership is pretty popular, even among Democrats.
Just The News reports:
Majority of voters, including nearly half of Democrats, prefer to live where gun ownership is legal
Astrong majority of U.S. voters in a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen – including nearly half of Democratic voters surveyed – say they would prefer to live in communities where gun ownership is legal.
Sixty-three percent of voters said they would prefer to “live where individuals are allowed to own guns.” Just 26% said they would prefer to reside “where guns are outlawed.”
The remaining 12% was unsure.
When broken down by political party alignment, the overwhelming majority of Republican voters – 83% – said they’d prefer to live in gun-friendly areas. Notably, nearly half of all Democratic respondents – 45% – said the same thing. Democrats have historically been more favorable to gun control than have Republicans.
This makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? People want to be able to protect themselves and their families.
Americans would be far safer if, instead of banning gun ownership, we required it

The 2nd amendment is going nowhere. Private gun ownership will remain the law of the land. This does not mean we can’t have sensible bipartisan gun control legislation passed such as universal background checks.

This is why Democrats are having a hard time passing new gun control measures.
Guns are pretty popular.
