60 percent of young Americans plan to purchase firearms


quote:

According to the study, about 40 percent of the American students surveyed said they definitely planned to own firearms once they had established their own households. Another 20 percent said they were “contemplating” owning guns.


quote:

Those findings were part of a broader study conducted by American University professor Jennifer L. Lawless and Loyola Marymount professor Richard L. Fox which focused on the political opinions of young Americans. The study was conducted prior the recent Newtown massacre, but after the Aurora theatre shooting.


quote:

Lawless told Campus Reform on Tuesday that in her view the findings were proof that President Obama should move swiftly, and without the permission of Congress if necessary, in order limit the availability of firearms.

quote:

“The next generation plans on owning guns, so if we want to avoid the tragedies that we’ve seen… we obviously need to move quickly and if an executive order is the way to do it, then that is the way the to do it,” she said.

The NRA needs to get gun stores to have voter registration forms available for the new consumers.

We're all buying guns because we are intending on shooting each other, amirite?

lol "we need to move quickly so we can bypass what the citizens actually want". Sounds about right. I think in general the youth in this country is more conservative than people would think.

Why haven't their parents bought them and taught them about guns already?

Once I live in a non gun-free zone. I will purchase a firearm and go through all of the necessary training for a concealed carry permit as well as whatever permitting is required to keep it concealed in my car.

As a recent college graduate, and longtime gun owner, her insinuations are offensive.

Stupid Cunt. Yes lets just trample all over the Constitution and ignore what the majority of the next generation want to fill an agenda.

I think more libertarian than conservative. They don't seem to care for social issues, but do believe in fiscal conservatism. I think the internet is to thank for that. I think Ron Paul made very big influence on college age kids.

It's getting harder and harder to not say bannable things about these people. I'm just saying... I have a feeling I will be banned before this mess is over.

Conservative is just an ideology not a political party. I consider myself conservative but not a Republican. Libertarians are the most conservative party on the ballot.
