Between violent people and Obama wanting to confiscate them this shouldn’t be a surprise.
Check it out:

The latest Economist/YouGov poll shows that 39 percent of American households own guns, which represents a five percent increase over the number of gun owning households in 2012.

Throughout 2013, gun control proponents frequently dismissed the importance of empirical data on gun sales by claiming gun companies were simply selling multiple weapons to the same purchasers.

According to the Washington Examiner, this increase in gun owning households marks a reversal of “the four-decade drop in household ownership” which began in the 1970s.
