Even most Democrats and liberals wanted a gun
This is a follow up to my post about the bitter Twitter action during the lock-down of Boston in the search for the bombers, Boston lock-down exposes gun culture divide.
It looks like the divide may be deep, but not very wide. A substantial majority of people want to have a gun in their home if there is a manhunt ongoing.
Even a majority of Democrats and liberals wanted a gun.
On Friday, the nation watched as the Boston area went under lockdown during a manhunt for the armed and dangerous marathon bombing suspect. If you were in that situation, would you want a gun at your side?
Sixty-nine percent say if they were in a situation similar to Bostonians, they would want a gun in their house.
That includes a large 88-percent majority of those in gun-owner households, as well as 50 percent of those in non-gun homes.
