Poll Finds 6 in 10 Americans Believe Guns Improve Home Safety

A troubling article in Time magazine says that a Gallup poll indicates that “More than 60% of Americans say having a gun in the home makes them safer.” Gun control advocates just don’t understand American thinking.

Having a Gun in the House -- Safer or More Dangerous?

Google “gun deaths by country” and the results are overwhelming.
