Anti-Gunners Coagulate To Claim “Study” Shows A Majority Of Americans Oppose Carry

posted on April 22, 2017

Facing momentum in several state legislatures to relax restrictions on concealed carry, a gaggle of gun-haters has gathered to promote a confusing, secret anti-gun study this week.

Bloomberg-funded The Trace wrote about a Bloomberg Johns Hopkins School of Public Health public opinion “study” in The Guardian, forming a rogue’s gallery of gun control. Together, they claim “A Majority Of Americans Oppose Carrying Guns In Public.” However, the Trace only links to a four-paragraph abstract, in addition to referencing an “unpublished Harvard/Northeastern survey result summary, obtained exclusively by The Guardian and the Trace. …” 

Why is this process a secret? Why are certain results shared with The Trace before the survey has been peer reviewed? How did the “researchers” frame their questions? How were respondents selected? If this is the “most definitive portrait of gun ownership in decades,” why do they refuse to let us look behind the curtain? 

Perhaps there’s a clue in the admission: “It’s difficult to account for the growing acceptance of guns in public, the authors said.” We agree; mystery seems to swirl around this “study.”
