Want true diversity? Hang out with gun owners

Being a disciple of Thomas Sowell, I look at “diversity” differently than most who get media attention. Sowell teaches diversity isn’t just skin color, but culture within any group of people. While this message falls on deaf ears in our current state of the American political experience, demographics can still be studied. One area to look at is who owns firearms in America.

StatisticBrain.com published a new study using multiple sources at gun ownership in America. The results are spread out in various demographic keys.
