The party of no guns

Nate Silver has an interesting look at gun ownership - and for Democrats, less gun ownership.
In 1973, about 55 percent of Republicans reported having a gun in their household against 45 percent of Democrats, according to the General Social Survey, a biennial poll of American adults.
Gun ownership has declined over the past 40 years — but almost all of the decrease has come from Democrats. By 2010, according to the General Social Survey, the gun ownership rate among adults that identified as Democrats had fallen to 22 percent. It remained at about 50 percent among Republican adults.
The party that doesn't like guns wants to tell those who have guns about the need for restriction.
Good luck with that.
