  • More Americans are carrying handguns than ever before

    Mother Jones - 10/20/2017

    Now, a new study provides striking data about the number of people who carry loaded handguns in public. In the first investigation of its kind in more than 20 years, researchers from the University of Washington School of Public Health, the University of Colorado, the Harvard School of Public Health, and Northeastern University found that three million Americans carry loaded handguns with them on a daily basis, and 9 million do so on a monthly basis. The overwhelming majority of them (82 percent) report doing so for self-protection.
