    it might be worth it- asian-americans as well. as a fan of the living constitution, i'm very interested in how demographic shifts are going to effect this issue.

    •  I wonder, in this regard, how much difference... (1+ / 0-)

      ...there would be depending on how many generations the Latinos and Asian Americans being polled have  been in the States. Most of them come from countries where guns are illegal in private hands, or nearly so. If you're first or second-generation, you might well be more inclined one way or the other differently than if you are of a third or later generation. But try to get that differentiation into a simple poll.

        although it would not be easy. but a truly comprehensive poll on gun ownership hasn't been done. given the magnitude of the issue, it should be.

        i'm skeptical that there would be significant generational differences, because people do tend to follow their family and cultural patterns, and the percent of gun owners overall is going down. but it would be worth knowing.
