In an effort to maintain their funding from the Joyce Foundation, the VPC puts out a report repeating the myth that gun ownership is in decline just two days before 65,000 people are set to attend the NRA Annual Meeting.
I wonder if they recognize the irony.
Note that they didn't repeat this last year when there was an increase in the numbers. Guess that doesn't fit w/ their meme.
They've been beating this drum for years as litigation, legislation and the firearm culture as a whole continues to sweep the nation. Their reasons for the alleged decline are mostly just as laughable. And Gallup has household ownership at 39%, a difference of almost 7% and personal ownership at 28%, a difference of 8%.
I guess they've got to do something to keep the money rolling in. What a gig.
