    A good troll will go to the effort of establishing credibility before just taking contrary positions to everything. He hasn't bothered to make that effort.

    Sadly, good trolling seems to be a lost art.

    Or, the individual is a recently banned or suspended poster.
    Just an opinion.
    My thoughts as well!

    The NRA lost it's way a long time ago, these days the NRA is a propaganda mill designed to scare the bejezus out of vulnerable people.
    Just look at the NRA propaganda piece called "Freedom in Peril"
    That's rather myopic. Got sources to back those claims up? Just curious.

    The laughing emoji should have been a clue to you, but as usual, it went ZIP right over your head. But, really the stuff you get sold on is funny as hell. Can I ask you a personal question without you being offended?
    Send personal questions in private.. Here we talk about gun-ownership over time

    Apparently, you have a problem understanding gun ownership trends as do the guys that wrote the paper. I would discount much of the information presented. Do you really need me to break it down for you?

    Border security is not going to stop terrorism. The republican platform now is largely about expanding government in order to better "protect" its citizens, which of course also means less freedom. The solution however, is to shrink government and promote the benefits of the 2ndA. Bigger government isn't the answer. Thank republicans for being scared of Muslims and everyone else not white.
    So restrictions on Muslims entering the country would not have prevented 911? OKAY...

    In other words, you do not have any argument against the validity of the statistics and the results
    The point is that they have measured (using the same methodology) that gun-ownership has fallen down over the years. . Sure, there may be many factors involved for this decline, but the effect is that as the rate of gun ownership decreases, the NRA loses its power and popularity. It gradually becomes obsolete for an increasing percentage of the US society which chooses for whatever reason not to have guns.

    If the information was given to you would you know how to use it?

    The best protection would have been improved border security, Dems don't like that. Thank a Muslim.

    I can tell you that the study is pretty much meaningless since there isn't an accurate way to estimate those numbers, too many factors are involved.

    Exactly. The patriot act being the best example of conservatives giving up their freedom and calling on the government to protect them.

    They are too stupid to understand self-protection and want big government to do it for them. They are less than real men.

    http://www.norc.org/PDFs/GSS%20Repor..._1972-2014.pdf

    Notice also that the study is based on the same survey over a period of time between 1972 and 2014. It is not a comparison of different surveys and different methodologies over time which would be meaningless.

    and some additional information

    One of the main reasons for the decline in household firearm ownership is the decrease in the popularity of hunting (Table 3). In 2014, only 15.4% of adults lived in households in which they, their spouse, or both were hunters. This is the lowest level of hunters since the highest level of 31.6% adults being hunters or married to a hunter in 1977.2
    I can tell you that the study is pretty much meaningless since there isn't an accurate way to estimate those numbers, too many factors are involved.
