A CBS/New York Times poll finds that households reporting that they own a gun is down to 36 percent, what the Washington Post declares as a record low.
Which is strange given that the FBI reported just 6 months ago that background checks for 2015 were up 6 percent from the year before and that 2013 was the all time record year for background checks, at over 21 million.
So either people are going to gun stores and filling out the paper work for a background check and never actually purchasing the fire arm or some people are building huge personal arsenals or (more likely) people lie to the CBS/NYT pollsters when the call them up and ask if they own a gun.
