8. Trend reversing?

GSS, NOPR, Gallup, and other polls all agree: ownership has been steadily declining since the 1970s.

The broad trend, however, seems to be reversing. The latest NBC/WSJ poll indicates that the number of households reporting gun ownership rose a full percentage point in just one month, reaching 42% as of February, 2013.

Polling data, NICS background check data, CDC data, and recent firearm sales figures all seem to confirm the increase.
