While Americans argue over the availability of guns, most of those with a gun in their house continue to say it makes them feel safer.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 39% of American Adults say they or someone in their household has a gun, down from 44% in February of last year. Fifty-four percent (54%) say they do not, while eight percent (8%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
