A new Gallup poll indicates that almost two thirds of Americans believe that having a gun at home makes them safer.
The poll finds that 63% of respondents, more than six in ten, say that owning a firearm makes their house a safer place to be.
The figure is double what it was in 2000, when just three in ten said owning a gun made them safer. Interestingly, the same number in the new poll, three in ten, now say they believe having a gun in the house makes it a more dangerous place.
The percentage of those who feel safer has increased steadily and significantly since 2000, and is now a significant majority.
The number is still a majority when measured according to the demographics of gender, race and location. The only majority grouping of Americans who feel less safe with a gun at home are Democrats (53%).
In addition, Americans of all political persuasions have become more disposed over time to the idea that gun ownership makes their home more secure.
Since 2000, 37% more Republicans, 29% more independents, and 13% more Democrats feel this way.
