    Interesting video. NY dude had to fly to Houston & Austin to find some youngsters? Must have flew along Atlantic then pivot over all those old, fat white OCers in VA to get down here.

    Was said that the rate at which young newbies are entering the fold was diminishing/falling off. Think that is not a fact and was a manufactured concession to a liberal program.

    I did not find any studies or data at all on the rate at which young people are embracing the so called "gun culture." What is found however is the meteoric rise in permits:

    To amplify Grapeshot's post above--- No study counting permit holders or rates is going to accurately count the number of those who OC without a permit, especially where no permit is required to OC.

    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!

    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    Washington DC is up to 73 Homicides in 2015. And the night is young.
    Baltimore MD is at 154.
    Sounds like the young'uns in those city-wide Gun Free Zones have an avid interest in firearms.

    Well maybe and maybe not. Analyze any available data and read this.

    It also depends on who is shooting who.

    Registering gun owners to prevent crime, is like registering Jews to prevent a HOLOCAUST.

    Ah soo.

    Then you did read and interpret/analyze the information. Others should do likewise to delve into the truth of the matter.

    I kinda have and kinda havn't. A lot of the time the cops is innocent, yet we have also seen instances like the alleged car thief that was shot & killed after trying to take the cop's gun, when a passer-bys video showed the cop planting the gun. That is one instance that is documented. There are many more.
    So essentially, can we trust the media to be truthful? Gets one to wonder about what really happened in those shootings.
