    Even if we accept the 33% figure from his article, doesnít that mean there are at least tens of millions of gun owners?
    Iím willing to bet that is more than the number of people who exercise their constitutional right to an abortion (at least annually) and yet I donít think anyone would try to imply that fewer abortions annually means anything with respect to the existence of the right. The Constitutional right to own a gun exists regardless of how many people actually own one.
    This thread has convinced me to renew my NRA membership and maybe buy some more guns.

    Based on a study that has been used since 1972 to estimate gun-ownership in the US, I say that the gun ownership has gone down

    Again here is the study! It is important to realize that the methodology is the same since 1972

    Look, I can respect where you are coming from, but you are on the wrong side of this argument form 4473 has been around since 1968, and it lists all gun purchases in the US from gun dealers, it clearly shows that gun purchases are the highest that they have ever been, who owns them and where they are no-one knows, it's just a WAGS, but getting back to the OP, the OP is pissed that Trump is the POTUS and will post anything that he thinks is supportive of Trump, Yes, NRA Membership is as high as it has ever been, and no the NRA is not about to be broke!
    To clarify again, I did not bring information that the gun purchases have gone down. I brought information that the gun ownership rate has gone down, meaning a lower percentage of the population today (compared to 1970) has guns. But for sure, with a much bigger economy, this lower percentage can afford to spend much more money for its hobby, passion, love, or whatever you want to call it! So, the fact that the gun sales are up does not invalidate the information I brought which show that a lower percentage of people own guns.

    I think we can agree that the NRA has but a small percentage of gun-owners, who are most committed ideologically to guns. This demographic is not going to change. It is the less committed demographic which finds guns increasingly obsolete. If you noticed, the same study which estimated that we have a lower gun-ownership rate today found that fewer people go for hunting these days which makes sense since a higher percentage of populations has mover to urban areas. It seems such developments have affected the attitude off casual gun-owners who under different circumstances, they would have bought a gun just for hunting.

    No one can show accurate gun ownership rates.

    As I see it this whole thing is about liberals try to shut down the organization that really educates people in firearm safety. That it fights fore my second amendment right is a plus. You should tdo some first hand investigation instead of depending on talking head. There's defiantly yellow journalism going on in the op.

    Here's a good starting point. https://gunsafetyrules.nra.org/

    About their training courses. https://explore.nra.org/interests/firearms-training/

    So when people start spouting how they are solely a propaganda machine they are either mislead or outright lying. (Imo).

    So, let us try to have a reasonable discussion about what we have said so far. Since you have said that you are tired of all this bickering and trolling, and since you show some interest in this subject, I think with a little bit of restraint we can carry the conversation with our resorting to personal comments and provocations...

You just came to troll, as you always do.
