I am still laughing about this thread topic. Today I've been thinking about all of the executives with whom I have worked throughout the years. These folks are highly educated and wealthy individuals who, for the most part, couldn't write a paragraph without misspellings or improper word use. That was my job! And then I started thinking about all of the hunting trips I have arranged -- duck, geese, dove, deer, big game, -- in-state; out-of-state --you name it and I've arranged it. Every single one of these men owned multiple weapons. (I know because I've had to arrange for the weapons to be transported.)
I'm going to call the "survey" stupid.

Actually, if you go to the source, ie, Gallup, the explaination is a bit clearer:
In 2010, the Gallup poll (based on "self reporting") showed that approximately 39% of Americans owned a gun. Further, the way to think of the breakdown, by category (ie, race, sex, education, location, etc) is as follows....35% of the Dems group (ie, bin), said they owned a gun, 35% of Independent group (bin), said they owned a gun and 49% of Republicans who self reported, said they owned a gun. In the education category: 42% with a HS diploma (or less) reported having a gun; the group with soime college education self reported 41% owned a gun; graduates with a college degree, self reported that 37% of them owned a gun...and those with post graduate self reported that only 30% of that group owned a gun.
The numbers are not intended to add up to 100%. But the trend is quite clear. Been looking for the estimates on +/- error.
I read that. Unbelievable.
I understand that as a result thereof , Obama has ordered the Secret Service, the US Marshalls and the security detail at his daughters' school replaced by smart UNARMED guards.
Keep them coming genius. .
Of course, it is.

Now, explain how gallop convinced the criminal element to "self report".
Also explain, did the parasites claim to be gun owners to make us look bad?
As I said, when I find information of the error bars, I'll be sure to share them with you.
In the meantime, I'm pretty confident that the "criminal element", had they self reported, would have been grouped into the following bins (a) uneducted; (b) low income and (c) don't vote, so no party affiliation. ...I would also expect most to be in their teens or 20's.
(a) and (b) just further supports my position, with (c) an irrelevant factor. Thanks.
You guys are fun to play with....
