Men, Women, Guns

 Megan Brenan at Gallup:

  • U.S. men roughly twice as likely as U.S. women to own a gun, 43% vs. 22%
  • 62% of women, 51% of men feel gun laws should be made stricter
  • Gender gap in gun-law preferences persists despite gun ownership status
Men and women in the U.S. differ starkly in their propensity to own a gun and their preferences for the nation’s gun laws. Gallup’s trends show that gun ownership among men has consistently been at least double that of women, and women are much more supportive than men of stricter gun laws.
