    By the way, the actual study (source) of gun ownership is in the link below. The previous link just used the results of this study

    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

    As a Greek citizen who speaks English I can read and comprehend that the statistics I found do not talk about the number of guns. They talk about the percentage of households. So, there may be more guns in fewer households.

    The sky is blue; therefore someone painted it reasoning doesn't work all the time.

    From around 49% of household gun ownership in the 1970's, it has gone down to 33% today. If somebody has different statistics, he can bring it forward. What I see based on the above is that the NRA becomes less popular over time...

    No - the only thing you can say from those figures is that gun ownership might be down. Those figures say absolutely nothing about the NRA.
    As I said, if you have contradictory evidence bring it forward. Just try to find something from neutral (as mush as it is possible) sources. The statistics I brought do not say directly anything about the NRA popularity, but it is reasonable to use these numbers as evidence of the NRA becoming less popular in a society where there are fewer gun owners. A difference between 49% and 33% does not show that gun ownership "might be down" It shows (assuming the study is based on statistics and not ideology) that gun ownership is almost certainly down.

    Yes-that's why there is a probably connection with Russian spying.

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