Elitist Professor Does Study On Guns And Young Americans, Then Jumps Shark

Well, imagine that, huh?

Sixty percent of high school and college students say they plan on owning guns at a later stage in life, an academic study from American University revealed on Monday.  

According to a brand new study, sixty percent of young Americans plan on purchasing firearms in the future.

According to the study, about 40 percent of the American students surveyed said they definitely planned to own firearms once they had established their own households. Another 20 percent said they were “contemplating” owning guns.

Those findings were part of a broader study conducted by American University professor Jennifer L. Lawless and Loyola Marymount professor Richard L. Fox which focused on the political opinions of young Americans. The study was conducted prior the recent Newtown massacre, but after the Aurora theatre shooting.

Lawless told Campus Reform on Tuesday that in her view the findings were proof that President Obama should move swiftly, and without the permission of Congress if necessary, in order limit the availability of firearms.

“The next generation plans on owning guns, so if we want to avoid the tragedies that we’ve seen… we obviously need to move quickly and if an executive order is the way to do it, then that is the way the to do it,” she said.

Perhaps we aren’t giving our young folks enough credit.

  1. The girl in the picture could be my daughter from behind.

    I thought it was a phenomenon of Alaska, but apparently the rest of the nation’s youth are saying to themselves “I’m not going to huddle on a theater floor begging for my life.”

    Good for them!

    The other statistic that gives me hope — there’s right around 180 million firearms in the United States already.
