Professor Winkler Quoted in Aljazeera America on Increase in Gun Sales With Decrease in Gun Ownership

February 19, 2016—Professor Adam Winkler was quoted in an Aljazeera America article discussing how overall sales of guns are going up, but fewer individuals may be buying them. The data are mixed, but some studies suggest a long-term decline in the proportion of U.S. households with guns, due to the decline in hunting, demographic shifts and reduced fears of crime.

“The growing populations in America — Latinos, Asians, African Americans, people who live in urban areas — are all populations that show more support for gun control,” said Professor Winkler.
