I would say it is higher. Ask any parent who has taken a child to the doctor in the last couple of years and the doc asks if there is a gun in the home?

I would wonder at the source of this "38%", or really the results of any survey claiming to represent results across a whole nation. I know for sure that I, and others in my household, haven't been polled about it. I also know that none of my close friends are NOT gun owners. Most own more than one. So I'm with all that say "much higher".

Must have surveyed California!  My guess is that the number is much, much higher but in this anti-gun climate people don't want to say yes.

I have several guns registered to me, but I'd answer "No" to a survey.  Can never know who is conducting the call and what their agenda really is.

Conrad Allen I agree, I'm sure it is a lot higher. More gun violence in my area. A rookie police officer got shot and killed on her first day on the job when responding to a domestic dispute. Two other officers were also wounded.

Varies by State and county, but I can see a huge % of condo and townhouse owners not owning guns, so 38% seems accurate.

Most home in Missouri own a gun.  It is different here than in most states that I have experienced.  Most homes have a number of guns.

Why is it "amazing" that 38% of American households own guns? I would think that its much more than that. Im in N.J. and its pretty hard to get a gun permit here but im sure more than 38% of the households here have guns legally or illegally. States like Texas, Georgia and Florida probably have much more.
