but a word has to be said about the subject and its effect on the population, “Between increases in the number of people who own handguns and the number of people who carry every day, there has been a striking increase in handgun carrying in the U.S.,” said lead study author Dr. Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington (UW), in Seattle. For the study, the researchers used data from the 2019 National Firearms Survey, which included nearly 2,400 U.S. handgun owners. These results suggest that, in 2019, approximately 16 million adult handgun owners had carried a loaded handgun in the past month, up from 9 million in 2015, according to past UW research. About 6 million carried every day, double the number who carried daily in 2015. In states with less restrictive carrying regulations, about one-third of handgun owners reported carrying in the past month compared to about one-fifth in more restrictive states. About 70% of survey respondents said they carried a loaded handgun for protection against another person. Far fewer said they carried a weapon as protection against an animal or for work, the study found. About 80% of handgun owners who reported carrying their weapons were men. About 75% were white. Most were aged 18 to 44, according to the report

Both parts of that statement could be true and yet still not require a post to appear on here.
