Most prefer to live where guns are plentiful

So finds a Rasmussen poll, Americans Prefer Living in Neighborhood With Guns, American Voters overwhelming prefer living in a neighborhood where they have the option of owning a gun than to live where nobody is allowed to be armed.

Well, good. I lived in London briefly in the 1970. Guns were not exactly outlawed in Britain at that time (they are now) but it was not likely that many people had them. I met a lot of people who were fearful of nighttime burglaries, and most houses had thick plank triple-bolted front doors. The U.S. and Switzerland have always enjoyed the lowest nighttime burglary rates in the world, mainly due to Americans and the Swiss owning guns.

The UK has seen a dramatic rise in crimes against persons since outlawing guns entirely in 1998.
