1 in 3 Americans Owns a Gun

Nearly one in three adults in the United States owns at least one gun, according to a new study.

 

In the study, researchers surveyed a nationally representative sample of 4,000 adults in the United States on gun ownership. The researchers found that about 29 percent of respondents said they owned at least one gun.

 

Most of the gun owners were white men older than 55, and the majority of them were married, the researchers said.
