It is interesting reading the comments to this point. The first thing I notice is that most of the respondents are very well written. They second is that the majority favor gun ownership.

NPR listeners being well written is not a shock. That the majority are in favor of gun ownership is.

It's was great to hear the liberal mindset beginning to realize that if SHTF, they will need to be able to protect themselves.

It does not surprise me, I know a lot of people who are very liberal(family included) who view guns as perfectly normal things to have around. Really the only people I know who hate the idea of guns are my mothers ULTRA conservative cousins(seriously, they make Rush Limbaugh look like Nancy Pelosi). It mostly comes from the fact that anyone who has lived or spent a lot of time in the country, away from the idea of "Call 911 and help arrives in a minute or two", realizes that you need to be able to defend yourself and not rely on the police. Also they are more likely to hunt, and therefore see a gun as a general survival tool.
