Gun Smoke

We mentioned the most notable Black Friday shopping trend:  buying guns.  NICS-checks were an all-time high that day.

Now we learn something else:

...a recent Gallup poll found that 47% of American households own a gun, up from 41% just a year ago.

Something's going on here.  Gun ownership is not a fad like Starbucks coffee v. A&P's Eight-O-Clock coffee.  Gun purchases have more serious 'purchase-decision' implications.
