Chalk It Up To Video Games?

Millennials trend left on everything but guns – where they turn into Real Americans.

Polling in gun politics is notoriously murky—much lies in the crafting of the question—but demographers have consistently reported a conservative streak in millennial attitudes on guns. Respondents aged 18-29 are the least likely in the country to support a renewed ban on assault weapons, at 49 percent, a fact that has helped drive nationwide support down to a record low. Pew’s data suggest that those falling in the youngest age range have dropped the furthest in support for “gun control” since 2000 (when the alternative is presented as “gun rights”). And when the question concerns the National Rifle Association’s top legislative priority, concealed carry, millennials appear to lead the country. According to Gallup’s version of the question in 2004, the notion that concealed guns made for safer spaces polled at 25 percent; 11 years later, it registered at 55 percent nationally. The greatest support came from those ages 18-29, at 66 percent, a full 10 points greater than the next highest scoring demographic.

There’s hope.

  1. I wish this trend could be chalked up to woke kids, but the failure of the reprobate left’s campaign of lies is just as likely to be the jaded consequence of a steady diet of Planned Parenthood “it’s not human” indoctrination in grade school.

  2. Seen online somewhere (accompanied by a horrific picture):

    “Gun control” is not what you think it means.

    It means only the state will have guns.

    If you think this is a good idea you need to read a history book.
