Study Indicates First-Time Gun Ownership on the Rise

Fifty-four percent of them were exercising their Second Amendment rights for the first time.

Results of a poll released early this week by the University of Texas at Tyler and The Dallas Morning News indicate first-time gun owners accounted for more than half of the new firearms purchased between May 28 and Sept. 2. The study focused tightly on registered voters in the state—with a sampling 1,150 Texans registered to vote—but the numbers endorse a 2020 trend first noted by FFLs across the nation as early as March.

Of those current firearm owners who responded to the combined phone and online survey, 17 percent bought a new gun in the past 90 days. Fifty-four percent of them were exercising their Second Amendment rights for the first time.
