Despite the constant onslaught exaggerating the risks of guns in the home, YouGov has a new survey finding that “42% of Americans would feel safer with a gun in the house, while 20% would feel less safe.”
Whether one breaks down the survey by gender, age, race, family income, or region, all groups feel safer with a gun in their home. Among racial groups, whites have the biggest gap between feeling safe or not, followed by blacks and then Hispanics.
