The household gun ownership rate has fallen from an average of 50 percent in the 1970s to 49 percent in the 1980s, 43 percent in the 1990s and 35 percent in the 2000s, according to the survey data, analyzed by The New York Times.

In 2012, the share of American households with guns was 34 percent
More guns are being an increasingly smaller percentage of the population. Gun owners are hoarding them. And you wonder why we call you nuts.

Don't like that source? Here, you can take it straight from Glenn Beck's would be in return for all the oral favors you gun nuts and right wing crazies have given him over the years.

Despite the high number of guns estimated to be in the U.S., indications are that gun ownership is actually on the decline. The long-running General Social Survey, maintained at the University of Chicago, has been asking about gun ownership since its inception in the 1970s. It has found that the number of people who say they have a gun in their home is at an all time low hovering around 30 percent, from a high of 50 percent in the 1970s.
Not only is gun ownership down, it's WAY down. Not only is gun ownership among you preppers up, it's WAY WAY WAY up.

And we're the crazy ones.
