This sociologist is putting out some interesting stuff.......especially since the latest Pew Research Poll came out.

David Yamane: I am a sociologist. Through study and personal experience, I am trying understand what Michael Bane calls “Gun Culture 2.0.†According to Bane, the formerly dominant Gun Culture 1.0 â€" based in hunting, military, and law enforcement â€" has given way to a new group of individuals (including an increasing number of women) who have gotten into shooting through concealed carry/self-defense and the shooting sports. Is there indeed a new gun culture in America? If so, what does it look like? Answering these questions is my aim.

I recommended alot of ways people can be actively involved in gun culture, and Pew did ask about many of them. I won't report all their results here, there are different levels of engagement with different gun culture media, with TV programs and at the top (39% of gun owners often or sometimes watch) and online discussions forums at the bottom (just 10% of gun owners often or sometimes participate).

Interesting site. This blog renewed my interest in revolvers....

The article in Cape Fear Living is pretty good IMHO. I love the quote: "After their first time shooting, A majority of women say they wish they had done it sooner...."

Interesting. Probably accounts for where the majority of gun owners and those in the trade get their information from.
